La Liga president Javier Tebas sent false evidence to the Public Prosecutor’s Office to implicate Barcelona, reports La Vanguardia.
The Camp Nou club have been under investigation for months for paying Jose Maria Enriquez Negreira €7.3 million.
They have been charged with corruption for the payments to the former vice president of Spanish football’s refereeing committee.
Tebas’ evidence implicates ex-Barca presidents Josep Maria Bartomeu and Sandro Rosell.
The duo were accused of disloyal administration and misappropriation.
Tebas submitted a document handwritten by former Barca director Josep Contreras.
However, the family of the late director have confirmed that the names in the document are not of the former presidents.
The document also has nothing to do with the current case involving Negreira.
The case investigated the alleged diversion of funds from the Spanish Federation presided over by Angel Maria Villar.
However, Tebas linked Bartomeu and Rosell with the names in the document.
Contreras’ family have confirmed that the document was written decades ago.
The names in it are those of Emilio Roman, his lawyer; Ramon Rosell, accountant of his companies; and Josep Maria, an employee of Banca Catalana.
Tebas did put out a disclaimer in the evidence he submitted.
He claimed the names and surnames in it may coincide with those of certain former Barcelona directors.
The La Liga president has defended himself on Twitter after La Vanguardia published the reports.
However, given his issues with the club, not many people will be surprised that he has gone to such an extent.
