Prosecutors estimate the footballer, a four-time former African Player of the Year, should reimburse the alleged fraud to tax authorities plus interest, and pay a fourteen point three million-euro fine

They want a prison sentence of 18 months for the 2006 fraud, and then three years jail for each subsequent year until 2009.
