NEW DELHI (Sputnik) — According to Singh, the fact that Sharapova features in the first information report does not make her a defendant in the fraud case. The main figures in the projected case are the senior managers of the Homestead Infrastructure Development, Homestead Infrastructure Maintenance and Homestead Arabic Homes companies, which developed the project.
"The first information report was registered… Sharapova was involved in the project, she advertised a tennis academy… The police will launch an investigation. She received money from the real estate developer, and if she knew that the company did not intend to implement the project, measures will be taken," the lawyer said.
Over 1,500 people have invested in the "Ballet by Sharapova" housing project. This was not the first project of the Homestead group of companies involving world stars.
