Former football star Johan Karo, 41, got into trouble.
On Wednesday, Norwegian Ökokrim announced that they have launched an investigation against the Norwegian over gross tax evasion.
We have a reasonable basis, says Prosecutor Marian Bender today’s work.
Tall and powerful striker John Carew has had great success during his career. Like clubs like Valencia, Roma, Lyon, Aston Villa and West Ham.
In addition, he made nearly a hundred caps with the Norwegian national team.
But after such a career, she doesn’t seem to walk as brave. On Wednesday, the Norwegian Environmental Protection Agency Okocrem announced the opening of an investigation against the Norwegian. This applies to gross tax evasion, states today’s work.
– We can confirm this, says Prosecutor Marianne Bender in a press release.
Suspected of providing incorrect information
In the press release, Okocream further wrote that Karo was suspected of providing incorrect information on his tax return by not providing information on overseas income and assets. It is also suspected that he provided incorrect information about his income and assets in Norway.
– We will now use the time needed to investigate whether it was tax evasion or not, says Bender.
In the middle of a tax dispute
The investigation begins at the same time that Carew is already in the middle of another tax dispute. This applies to the amount of tax Carew will have to pay, but in case of disagreement over whether it should be paid in Norway or the UK.
The Norwegian tax authorities applied to freeze Karo’s assets in the country, but the parties reached an agreement before taking it to court.
The penalty range for serious tax offenses in Norway includes everything from fines to six years in prison.
After his career, Karo appeared on Norwegian television as an actor.
