Champions league ref faces Dutch tax probe

Champions League referee faces tax probe into fees earned on European and FIFA duty

A referee at the centre of a high-profile row over a disputed penalty is
facing questions from a different quarter – this time from the Dutch taxman, it
has emerged.

Dutch referee Pieter Vink caused grief to Arsenal fans last week when he
failed to award a penalty against Liverpool’s Dirk Kuyt in their crucial
Champions League clash.

Vink has also angered the Dutch tax authorities however, the Sun reported.

He is one of several referees under investigation by the Dutch authorities.

Dutch FA director Henk Kesler said: ‘The investigation is about incomes that
our international referees have had from European or world football
associations.’
