Boris Becker has denied allegations by London prosecutors that he made false statements about some of his trophies. He said he did not know where the trophies were.
Three-time Wimbledon champion Boris Becker has denied that he deliberately deceived officials about the location of his tennis trophies. At his hearing, attorney Rebecca Sockley, 54, accused tax officials of “manipulating the nose” when he said he did not know the location of several trophies. Becker said Monday that the claim was “false.”
Becker said he would lose his “many” trophies. Chockley told Southwark Crown Court in London that this was hard to imagine.
Among the trophies that Becker allegedly did not concede after he went bankrupt in 2017 were two of his three Wimbledon singles titles, the Olympic gold he won in the doubles category from 1992 and the pods he won at the 1991 Australian Open. And 1996.
Becker, who has won six Grand Slam tournaments in his career, has been accused of failing to cooperate in bankruptcy proceedings. If convicted, he faces up to seven years in prison for the London Pi exam. He denies the allegations.
