It turned out that the representative of one of the parties in the tax evasion case is kennyS, in whose name Kenny Schrub & Co Limited was registered in Ireland. According to the French tax service, the esportsman and his half-brother set up a company in Ireland to pay a corporate tax of 12.5%, which is half the rate in France.
At the same time, kennyS and his half-brother appealed against this decision in order to cancel the operations and prohibit the tax authorities from using the information collected during the searches.

This income is classified as wages and salaries from foreign sources and was paid by Kenny Schrub & Co Limited based in Ireland.
