Spanish police storm Barcelona offices and arrest officials on charges of money laundering

Today, Monday, the Spanish police stormed the offices of Barcelona club to search them, before arresting former president Josep Maria Bartomeu and a number of administrators on charges of money laundering, according to the newspaper "Marca" and the radio "Cardina Ser".

Marca said that the police storming of Barcelona Club offices is related to the (Barça Gate) scandal, an issue that occupied public opinion in Barcelona last year, especially since the former Barcelona board of directors contracted with a company to direct public opinion through social media pages, polish the image of its members, and distort the image of its members. Some of the people and entities said to oppose the administration of former President Josep Maria Bartomeu, such as Barca captain Lionel Messi.
