Police and tax inspectors storm Lionel Messi's wedding venue

Police and tax inspectors have carried out a court ordered search at a casino, inside the hotel where Lionel Messi will be getting hitched this weekend.

They nonetheless, denied it had any connection with the football stars' wedding.

The raid which took place on Wednesday at the City Centre Hotel and Casino, in Rosario, Argentina, was approved by judge Marcelo Baylaque, amidst an investigation of  tax evasion by the hotel head Cristobal Lopez.

We are working exclusively with the casino,” Carlos Vaudagna, the regional director of the Federal Administration of Public Revenue, told EFE.
“The hotel is not involved and this will not affect Friday’s event in any way.
“It was just a coincidence that we came a few days prior [to the wedding], we had the judicial request a month ago but were just granted permission now.
“We came to seize video monitoring tape related to subjects who we believe in 2015 received financial gain or earnings of more than $6,000 in daily [casino] winnings.
