Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli was sentenced on Sunday to nine months of community service while her mother was sentenced to 16 months in prison, after the 2 pleaded guilty to evasion earlier this year.
The Tel Aviv Magistrate’s Court ruling upheld the sentence set forth within the plea agreement reached between Refaeli and her parents, Tzipi and Rafi, with the prosecution on allegations of evasion and false tax reporting. Tzipi will attend jail on September 21, and Bar will report on an equivalent day for service work.
The judge noted that she considered the two’s contribution to society, Tzipi’s medical condition, Bar being the mother of three children, and therefore the incontrovertible fact that in many cases tax offenders haven’t any record . “I have concluded that this is often an overall punishment which is cheap ,” said the judge.
Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli received a record sentence in his trial for tax evasion. Refaeli was sentenced to 9 months of community service, while her mother was sentenced to 16 months in prison for tax evasion.
The influencers accused Refaeli and his mother of tax evasion on income of approximately $ 7.2 million during the lengthy lawsuit. The famous model and her mother were also fined.
Authorities lied about where the supermodel lives, accusing him of not paying about $ 7.2 million in tax on his earnings. Refaeli will have to pay a $ 1.4 million fine as a result of negotiations accepted by prosecutors, and all charges against him will be dropped.
Her father Raffi and her mother Zipi accompanied the famous model, who was seen yesterday while entering the Tel Aviv courthouse. Refaeli and her mother, 35, were found guilty of tax evasion on income approaching $ 10 million.
It was decided to pay a fine of $ 1.5 million to the mother daughter in addition to the millions of tax debts owed to the state. Zipi Refaeli will start serving his prison sentence next week.
Refaeli, a popular TV personality, was the host of the Eurovision Song Contest held in Tel Aviv last year.
The case centered around Refaeli’s residence over the years, when he traveled the world in high-profile fashion campaigns, graced the cover of Sports Illustrated swimwear magazine, and had a long romantic relationship with Leonardo DiCaprio.
Israeli tax law determines residence primarily based on whether a person spends most of the calendar year in the country. Refaeli claimed that he had not resided in the country for many years, obtained his income from abroad, so he did not have to declare his income.
Prosecutors denied the famous model’s claim and accused him of providing false tax information. Refaeli’s indictment included information that he claimed to have resided abroad to avoid paying taxes in Israel on his income, earning approximately $ 7.2 million between 2009 and 2012.
Refaeli’s lawyers said he proved that the famous model did not intentionally evade taxes. Her mother, who also acted as Refaeli’s representative, was accused of not reporting her income, avoiding paying taxes, and helping someone else evade tax payments. In the indictment, it was stated that Refaeli signed lease agreements for her daughter on behalf of other family members to obscure her actual residence status and refrained from declaring her own income as her daughter’s representative.
