The two men had been in detention since last March 6.
Ronaldo de Assis Moreira, aka Ronaldinho:
"He is free to travel to any country in the world, but he will have to let people know if he changes his address permanently for a period of one year."
This was the conclusion of the magistrate during the hearing, which lasted three hours and was broadcast live on television.
The prosecution asked Ronaldinho to pay a fine of 90 thousand dollars for "damage to the company".
