Marcelo he is a footballer who usually has to parade through the Spanish courts. The ‘merengue’ defender has a bad habit of evading rules and breaking laws, which is why he is usually constantly under the magnifying glass of justice. For this reason, since it came to Real Madrid, accumulates more than one million euros in fines.
In the last hours, the Brazilian defender again made the news for break with the decree of perimeter closure of the Generalitat Valenciana. Because he was shown breaking confinement and not wearing a chinstrap in public space, the Real Madrid footballer will face a fine of around 600 euros. However, it is not the first time that Marcelo has to take out the checkbook for breaking the law.
One of the actions that brought him the most problems with justice was tax evasion. In fact, the Real Madrid defender had to pay a fine of 800,000 euros after reaching an agreement with the Economic Crimes Prosecutor’s Office for evading taxes, according to El Confidencial. In addition, Marcelo had to pay 150,000 euros for crimes of damage in the fiscal years of 2011 and 2012.
In any case, tax evasion is not the only crime committed by the Brazilian since his arrival at Real Madrid in 2007. In fact, the footballer’s traffic offenses often fill the finances of the Spanish government. It turns out that, in 2013, Marcelo had to pay a fine of 6,000 euros for a crime against road safety, while last year he paid 157,000 euros for driving with a driving record without points.
The anger of the Generalitat
From the Valencian government they were very annoyed by the attitude of the Real Madrid player, ignoring health regulations. In fact, the president of the Generalitat Valenciana, Ximo Puig, spoke very angrily about the Brazilian defender. “In the Valencian Community the regulations against the coronavirus are met, perhaps in other communities they are not met or have a kind of law of the jungle,” declared the ruler.
