The public prosecutor has requested that the former president of Barcelona Football Club, Sandro Rosell, be held in prison without the option of bail.

Imprisonment without bail requested for Rosell

Following the testimonies heard by judge Carmen Lamela in the High Court of Spain for Rosell and his business partner Joan Besoli, the request was made for them both.

Rosell was arrested as part of the FBI-assisted Operation Rimet, named in honour of the ex-Fifa president, Jules Rimet, and is accused of money-laundering 15 million euros. The judge had ordered that his properties were searched for any information that could assist the investigation.
