The Spanish prosecutors' office gave on Monday to the Judge number five of the National High Court a letter in which they ask for the case of the alleged fraud to Brasilian fund DIS to be judged - they were hiding 40 % of the federative rights of Barça's player Neymar - with the signing of the Brazilian for the Catalan club. According to what Cadena SER said, the attorney considers that once the whole procedure of investigation is done, Neymar, his father, his mother, Sandro Rosell and Odilio Rodrigues (former presidents of Barça and Santos respectively), FC Barcelona, Santos and the company of Neymar's parents (N&N) have all to be charged.

The Prosecutors attribute a fellony level of corruption charge to Neymar and his father in the name of the articles 286 bis and 288 of the Penal Law, that comprise prison sentences from 6 months to 2 years, and significant fines. Barça and former president Sandro Rosell are charged with the same fellony, alongside a charge of improper practices. For the latter Santos FC and former president Ofilio Rodrigues are also charged. On the other hand, the prosecutor asks for the archive of Josep Maria Bartomeu's lawsuit, Barça's current president.

The prosecutor suggests for Neymar to be judged for corruption as he signed with Barça in 2011 contracts that were linking him to this hidden club of the Brazilian fund, which was the one owning his federative rights, "disrupting in that manner the free market of footballer transfers and damage at the same time the DIS fund, that saw the possibility for the player to enter the marker in conforming to the rules of free competition being taken away, therefore unable to get a higher transfer fee", according to the prosecutor.
