Prosecutors seek 5 years for Bayern Munich boss

MUNICH, Germany -- German prosecutors demanded five and a half years' jail Thursday for Bayern Munich boss Uli Hoeness for evading millions in taxes.

Prosecutor Achim von Engel sought the prison term for major tax fraud ahead of a verdict expected after 1300 GMT in a trial that has captivated football-obsessed Germany.

Hoeness, 62, has admitted to dodging 27.2 million euros (US$37.6 million) in taxes by hiding his wealth in Swiss bank accounts while obsessively “gambling” on stocks and currencies.
