VFrom an account in Europe, the former Brazilian soccer star Ronaldinho is said to have taken the money that he used for the bail to be released from custody in Paraguay. The Brazilian and Argentine media reported on Wednesday, citing judge Gustavo Amarilla. “The origin of the money and the form of the transfer were approved by the judge,” quoted the portal “UOL” Ronaldinhos lawyer Sérgio Queiroz. “If there had been any illegality, the deposit would not have been accepted.”

When his passport was withdrawn two years ago because he had not paid a fine of two million euros, there were still a few euros in the account in Brazil. The former professional of FC Barcelona had now paid 1.6 million US dollars (1.47 million euros) so that he and his brother Roberto Assis were able to leave the prison in the capital Asunción on Tuesday under house arrest. They had spent more than 30 days with fake passports because of the entry.

In the “Palmaroga Hotel” in the center of Asunción with more than 100 rooms you can follow the further procedure. According to media reports, they are said to be the only guests. You can move around the hotel freely, but are under police surveillance and are not allowed to leave the country.

The question will be whether Ronaldinho’s lawyers will be able to maintain the version that the only offense is to use a fake passport – or whether he and Roberto are involved in the activities of a criminal organization. “It is clear that there were no bad intentions; the two were duped, ”the portal“ GaúchaZH ”from Ronaldinho’s hometown Porto Alegre quoted one of the brothers’ lawyers on Wednesday.
