Police Raids Venue of Lionel Messi’s Wedding

Police and tax inspectors have carried out a court-ordered search at a casino attached to the hotel that is preparing to host the wedding of Barcelona star. Lionel Messi, authorities said.

Though they denied any connection with the coming nuptials, the Wednesday raid at the City Center hotel and casino complex in Rosario, Argentina, was authorised by federal judge Marcelo Baylaque amid an investigation of alleged tax evasion by magnate Cristobal Lopez.
Messi's wedding to longtime partner Antonella Roccuzzo is set to take place on Friday at the same complex, but officials said the attached hotel was not part of the raid.

"We are working exclusively with the casino," said Carlos Vaudagna, the regional director of the Federal Administration of Public Revenue, told EFE. "The hotel is not involved and this will not affect Friday's event in any way.

"It was just a coincidence that we came a few days prior [to the wedding], we had the judicial request a month ago but were just granted permission now."

Vaudagna also said he estimated that authorities would have seized all they needed for the probe by the end of the day and would not disturb the wedding preparations.
