Harry Redknapp has this morning appeared in court charged with tax evasion.
Harry, along with former Portsmouth chairman Milan Mindaric, has been jointly charged with two counts of cheating the public revenue.
The charges relate to two payments equalling £183,000 via a Monaco bank account and supposedly evaded the tax and national insurance contributions due between 1st April 2002 and 28th November 2007.
Both men appeared at City of Westminster Magistrates’ court today, 11th February 2010. This was the first time that either man has appeared in court in relation to the charges.
After just 10 minutes in court District Judge Timothy Workman gave both men unconditional bail and adjourned the case until April 14th.
The charges were brought by the Crown Prosecution Service following a joint investigation by HM Revenue and Customs and City of London Police.
