Singer to go to jail for money laundering

21 November 2014, 08:27

Madrid — A Spanish court has ordered popular folk singer Isabel Pantoja to jail after her appeals against a two-year sentence for money laundering were rejected.

The southern Malaga provincial court said the 58-year-old Pantoja had three days to enter prison.

Pantoja, who was also fined 1.2 million euros ($1.5 million) following the 2012 trial, was found guilty of laundering money for Julian Munoz, a former boyfriend and one-time mayor of the resort city of Marbella.

Pantoja is a fixture in Spain's gossip magazines and TV shows. She was married to the famous bullfighter Francisco "Paquirri" Rivera, who died in the bullring in 1984.

Munoz, who was sentenced to seven years, ran a scheme of providing building permits in Marbella in return for bribes.
