Atletico director facing jail sentence

Spanish prosecutors have asked for Atletico Madrid sporting director Jose Luis Perez Caminero to be given a four-year jail sentence and fined four million euros for involvement in laundering drug money.

Jose Luis Perez Caminero is a former Atletico Madrid and Spain midfielder.

El Mundo reports that the former Atletico and Spain midfielder was stopped by police in Madrid in June 2009 with 58,500 euros in 500 euro notes found inside his Mercedes.

Court documents, seen by El Mundo, say the money came from Mexican and Colombian cocaine dealers. Caminero, and 14 co-defendants, are accused of helping launder money by swapping smaller bills for bigger bills, via contacts in banks or other businesses. The ex-footballer allegedly received a three percent commission for providing this service to the criminal gangs.

The arrest and initial charges took place long before Caminero rejoined Atletico in his current role in 2011. The newspaper says the trial proceedings are now set to commence shortly.
