Highlights: The woman who accuses Dani Alves of rape informed the judge that she is no longer giving up on being compensated. The young woman rectifies her initial desire not to be financially compensated after seeing the effects of the criminal proceedings. Alves has been in pre-trial detention since last January, when he changed his story three times before the investigating judge. His lawyers have since tried to get him out of jail, so far without success. Everything indicates that Alves will face the trial for a crime of sexual assault with penetration, which is expected to be held next year.

The victim of the rape allegedly committed by Dani Alves at the Sutton nightclub in Barcelona, in December 2022, no longer renounces being compensated. Last August, once the investigation against the former Barça defender was concluded, the 23-year-old's lawyer filed a brief in court requesting that an initial request be revoked by which she expressly waived being financially compensated for the injuries and moral damages suffered, according to La Vanguardia and sources close to the case have confirmed to this newspaper.

In January, during her statement as an injured party before the investigating judge, the victim expressed her wish to waive compensation. The magistrate reminded her that she was fully within her rights, but the woman indicated that her goal is for justice to be done and for the former footballer to serve a prison sentence. Seven months later, in August, lawyer Ester García rectified on her behalf because, at first, the girl was not fully aware of what the criminal process was going to mean to her. For his health (because of the psychological treatments he is needing), but also for his work. Nor of the moral damage suffered.

The change of position coincided with the end of the instruction, as established by the law of the only yes is yes. Until then, even if the victim resigned, she was asked again at the oral trial whether she wished to be compensated. With the new law, however, the time to express your wish is once an indictment has been issued. The judge granted the victim's request. After the end of the investigation, the private prosecution and Alves' defense negotiated to reach an agreement regarding the prison sentence and disqualification, which did not bear fruit.

A few days ago, the indictment of the Prosecutor's Office was revealed. In addition to a nine-year prison sentence, he asks that he compensate the girl with 150,000 euros for physical and psychological injuries and also for moral damages. In the coming days, the victim's lawyer will present her indictment.

Alves has been in pre-trial detention since last January, when he changed his story three times before the investigating judge. His lawyers have since tried to get him out of jail, so far without success. Everything indicates that Alves will face the trial for a crime of sexual assault with penetration, which is expected to be held at the beginning of next year in the Court of Barcelona.

The court rulings handed down so far (and also the briefs of the Prosecutor's Office) lend full credibility to the account of the woman, whose statement has been described as "forceful" and "persistent". The young woman reported the rape on January 2, three days after the events, which occurred in the toilets of the VIP area of Sutton, an elite nightclub in Barcelona.
