Monserrat Caballé

A court of Barcelona has sentenced Spanish opera singer Montserrat Caballé to six-month probation over tax evasion. In addition, the 82-year-old has to pay 320,000 euros in fines. She agreed to bilateral agreement between her lawyers, the prosecution and the tax office. In the settlement of concert revenues she had indicated Andorra as a residence, but lived in Barcelona. At the hearing she pleaded guilty. At the same time, the singer was not present in the courtroom because of health problems, and made her statement via videoconference from home.
