Football chairman faces tax charges; uk newsbulletin.

THE former chairman of Portsmouth Football Club has been charged with tax evasion.

Milan Mandaric, now chairman of Leicester City, strenuously denied the allegations when it emerged last month that prosecutors intended to bring charges. He will appear at the City of Westminster Magistrates' Court on February 11 over two counts of "cheating the public revenue".

Mandaric, 71, was arrested with former Pompey manager Harry Redknapp, now manager of Tottenham Hotspurs, and three other men in 2007. All have denied any wrongdoing.

The charges relate to the payment of $295,000 (pounds 183,000) to another person via a bank account in Monaco, evading tax and National Insurance contributions, the CPS said.
