Bayern Munich President Hoeness in court

Court in Germany has on March 13, sentenced Uli Hoeness, president of legendary football club Bayern Munich, to three-and-a-half years in prison.

Judge Rupert Heindl ruled Hoeness’s voluntary disclosure – that he had failed to pay taxes – was incomplete and thus did not meet a vital requirement needed for amnesty under German tax laws designed to encourage tax evaders to come clean.

Reuters reports that Hoeness is a much respected football manager who turned Bayern Munich into one of the world’s most successful clubs, which has now won five UEFA Champions’ League titles and won the German Bundesliga 50 times.
