Police officers from the money laundering department of the Mossos d’Esquadra were at Camp Nou earlier in the week to collect documentation relating to FC Barcelona's contracts with I3 Ventures, the company paid to monitor social media for the club that created fake accounts to criticise opposition candidates to the board and players.

According to 'La Vanguardia', who cite "judicial sources," the Mossos turned up at Barça's stadium under instruction from a judge at a court in Barcelona where a complaint was made by eight club members about the relationship with I3 Ventures.  

The Mossos requested information on the contracts, above all the price paid for them and the controls and filters applied within the club. They are investigating a possible administrative crime where Barça have paid above market price and that members of the board have received a commission. There are not yet any suspects, although it's likely that a member of the board will be called as a witness. 

The complaint was not filed against anyone in particular and wants to find out if there were any irregularities committed, as expected. The complaint was made atfer the February revelations by Cadena Ser about Barça's relationship with I3, with former vice president Emili Rousaud saying in March that "someone had their hands in the till."
