The Prosecutor's Office opposed this Monday that the Barcelona Court release Dani Alves on provisional release, considering that the risk of escape persists and that the indications that he committed the alleged violation for which he entered prison on 20 September remain. January.

According to sources from the Public Prosecutor's Office, the Prosecutor's Office presented its report to the Barcelona Court to oppose the release of the footballer and rejects the precautionary measures to withdraw his passport, daily appearances in court and the use of a telematic bracelet that proposes his defending.

Alves' defense appealed before the Barcelona Court the order of the investigating judge to send him to pretrial detention for allegedly raping a young woman at the Sutton nightclub in Barcelona on December 30, for which the Court must decide in the coming days If you release him, once you have the reports from the Prosecutor's Office and from the private prosecution.

To date, as judicial sources have indicated to the international agency


, the private prosecution representing the victim has not yet sent its brief to the Barcelona Court to position itself on the appeal filed by the Brazilian player on 30 December. January.

In that appeal, the player's lawyer, Cristóbal Martell, put forward various arguments to dismantle the flight risk on which the judge who is investigating the case in court number 15 of Barcelona relied to send the footballer to prison, on the past 20 from January.

The player's defense alleged, among other reasons, that Alves voluntarily went to testify before the Mossos, that he resides with his wife in Esplugues de Llobregat (Barcelona) and that he has personal, family, social and business roots in the Catalan capital , which undermines their flight risk.

He also argued that the player no longer has the "economic muscle of periodic income" that the instructor attributed to him, after the Mexican soccer club Pumas, in which he played, terminated his contract and after the loss of other contracts sponsorship, publicity and image that had subscribed with different brands.

In addition, in the brief presented before the Barcelona Court, the legal team of the former Barcelona player questioned the evidence that led the judge to send Alves to prison, mainly using the videos of the images prior to the moment in which the young woman and Alves they entered the private bathroom of a private room at the Sutton nightclub, where he allegedly raped her.

According to the letter, the videos show that before that moment Alves and the victim, who went to the disco with a cousin and a friend, were in a "playful and festive way, surrounded by many people in an open space", which "it is far" from the scenario of "environmental intimidation".

Subsequently, Alves' lawyer pointed out in the appeal, the recording denied that the footballer closed the bathroom door in which the alleged rape took place: first he is the one who enters the premises and, two minutes later, the young woman does, " without Dani Alves clearing the way for him".

However, the public ministry opposes the Barcelona Court releasing Alves, imprisoned in the Brians 2 prison in Sant Esteve de Sesrovires (Barcelona), considering that the risk of flight does persist and that the the indications that he committed the alleged violation.
