The Croatian Prosecutor’s Office opened an investigation into Luka Modric for perjury. Real Madrid’s footballer is accused of giving untrue testimony on 13 June during the trial against former President of Dynamo (Zagreb) Zdravko Mamić. The latter, along with his brother Zoran and two other men, were charged with illegal acts that led to the loss of Dinamo by 15 million . and the state by 1.5 million .
Six days ago, Modric was summoned to appear in court to testify in a case of supposedly concealing Mamic’s revenue after the midfielder’s transfer to Tottenham in 2008. The 31-year-old Croatian national said he had signed in 2004 An annex with the Zagreb Club for the possible distribution of revenue for upcoming transfers. However, prosecutors say this is a lie, because two years ago at a previous hearing, Modric had said that the annex in question had been initialed only after he had moved to Tottenham.
Because of the violation of the law, Real’s player is threatened with imprisonment from 6 months to 5 years.
