Spanish Police have now arrested ex Barcelona present Josep Maria Bartomeu today in Spain.

Bartomeu was arrested for being part of the ‘Barcagate’ scandal during his reign as the club’s president.

Bartomeu and three other people were arrested by the Spanish police.

The others are;

Barcelona’s CEO Oscar Grau, Jaume Masferrer, and Barcelona head of legal services Roman Gomez Ponti.

The Spanish police started at Barcelona’s Camp Nou stadium with a search operation.

Spanish media said the operation was related to last year’s Barcagate,’ in which club officials were accused of launching a smear campaign against current and former players who were critical of the club and then-president Bartomeu.

Last September, it was reported that the Catalan police had filed a report to the judge investigating Barcelona’s hiring of social media consultancy I3 Ventures and ‘possible economic crimes’
