After being accused of bribing referees, Barcelona can be banned from the Champions League.
According to the Spanish publication El Debate, Barcelona has been charged with bribery by judge Joaquin Aguirre.
This pertains to $6 million in payments made to former Technical Committee of Referees vice president Jose Maria Enruquez Negreira.
The former presidents of Barcelona, Maria Bartomeu and Sandro Rosell, as well as Negreira and his son Javier Enriquez Romero, have all been prosecuted.
The LaLiga champions are accused of violating a regulation that forbids public servants from accepting compensation for their work.
According to the Supreme Court, Negreira was an individual acting in a public capacity.
According to the claims, Josep Contreras, an ex-director of Barcelona, set up a shell business through which Negreira was allegedly handed money.
