Sandro Rosell has sued the Spanish Government for over 29 million euros, since spending two years in jail.
For accusations regarding which was later cleared, the former president of Barcelona spent two years in police custody.
Rosell wants the public officials-the judge, police and prosecutors-who made his arrest, rather than the taxpayer, to pay him 29 million euros reveals an information published by El Mundo (via Marca).
In particular, after being arrested on suspicion of money trafficking Rosell seeks 29,754,465.02 euros in compensation.
The vast majority of it – 28,062,950 euros – falls from Rosell’s business losses during his tenure behind bars.
As a consequence of his time in jail, the remainder is made up of the loss he sustained owing to his reputation (405,000 euros), psychological damage (200,000 euros), and emotional damage (320,000 euros).
