Former Brazilian soccer star Ronaldinho, in house arrest in Paraguay, could leave the country next week after the prosecution’s decision to suspend the investigations against him for the use of a Paraguayan passport with false content, judicial sources informed AFP this Friday.
A board of four Paraguayan prosecutors recommended to the magistrate of the case the “conditional suspension of evidence” on the condition that he deliver the sum of $ 90,000 to repair the damage caused, after establishing a domicile in Brazil and appearing before a court of your country every three months for one year.
The judge in the case, Gustavo Amarilla, told local press that on Monday he will examine the prosecutor’s report before calling Ronaldinho and his brother Roberto de Assis Moreira to impose the penalties on him.
Both completed five months in prison this Friday, four in home confinement in a four-star hotel in downtown Asunción.
The former star of FC Barcelona, Paris Saint Germain and AC Milan, among others, refused to speak to the press but spoke only once to journalists from the local ABC newspaper.
“No element has been detected that proves that Ronaldo de Assis Moreira had a direct participation in the planning of obtaining irregular documents, an extreme that does not exempt him from responsibility”, suggests the recital of the prosecution’s report.
He said that the expectation of imprisonment for the world champion with Brazil in 2002 is two years and recommended that he be subjected to a one-year trial period “to satisfy the crime committed.”
The request is extended to Roberto de Assis Moreira, who is also responsible for obtaining the passports used upon entering Asuncion on March 4.
Ronaldinho had arrived to develop an agenda with a foundation to help poor children in the interior of Paraguay and the inauguration of a casino run by a businessman from his country.
