ASUNCION (PARAGUAY) – The fortieth was the most bitter birthday in Ronaldinho's life since he was forced to spend it in a prison in Paraguay.
Despite this, Ronaldinho still tried to make it as pleasant as possible.
First he played football with the other prisoners, then he received two special gifts: a cake with forty candles and a barbecue dinner …
In the meantime, however, his legal situation has worsened … The investigation enters a new phase, with the local prosecutor willing to focus on what he believes may be a money laundering scheme involving the entrepreneur who invited the former AC Milan player in Paraguay, Dalia Lopez.
To this end, investigators will begin to analyze files and messages on the cell phone of Ronaldinho and his brother, Roberto Assis.
According to the prosecutor responsible for the case, Osmar Legal, the relationship between the two brothers and Lopez, the entrepreneur who managed their visit and who met them on arrival at Asuncion airport before they were arrested, is being investigated.
"Our main hypothesis is that the forged documents would have been used for commercial or investment purposes that were not legal," explained Legal, for whom it is "strictly necessary" for Ronaldinho to remain in prison.
The former champion of AC Milan and the Brazilian national team was arrested with his brother on March 6 while attempting to enter Paraguay with a fake passport.
A judge meanwhile denied the bail and rejected the defense's request to put them under house arrest, arguing that there is a danger of escape for the two suspects. (source ANSA).
