Frederico claimed that the donations to the foundation had not been used for charity work but had been funneled to the accounts of Messi’s family members.

In late September, the court closed the case citing a lack of evidence and that some of the alleged crimes took place in Argentina, placing them outside of the court’s jurisdiction.

But ABC newspaper said National High Court’s Judge Maria Tardon has accepted Frederico’s appeal and reopened the case.
