Bartomeu and Rosell were called to give evidence at Spain's national court in Madrid over a complaint for fraud and corruption brought by Brazilian investment fund DIS, which held 40 percent of Neymar's sporting rights when he played at Santos before joining Barca in 2013 .Neymar has been called to give evidence Tuesday.The deal was originally valued at 57.1 million euros ($62.1 million) by Barca, 40 million of which was paid to the N&N company owned by the player's father with Santos receiving just 17.1 million.By splitting the fee between a number of different contracts between Santos and Neymar himself, Barcelona stand accused of defrauding the Spanish taxman of 12.7 million euros.
