The Prosecutor’s Office has opposed the player’s defense request for his release.
Today we have learned that the Provincial Prosecutor’s Office of Barcelona has opposed the request for freedom that had made the defense of the player, exercised by the lawyer Cristóbal Martell.
There is a risk of leakage
The Prosecutor’s Office understands that there is a real flight risk. This has been explained to Europa Press by sources familiar with the case.
Alves has been in prison since January 20, 2009.
Alves has been in pre-trial detention since January 20 for allegedly sexually assaulting a young woman at the city’s Sutton nightclub.
This is the second appeal filed in an attempt to have the player released from prison.
His defense already filed an appeal trying to have him released, although both the investigating judge of the 15th Court of Instruction of Barcelona and the Barcelona Court of Appeals rejected it.
The defense proposed bail and the withdrawal of the passports.
As a result, the defense again requested his release last week and proposed that bail be imposed and his Spanish and Brazilian passports be taken away to ensure that he would not flee if he were to be released from prison.
Alves will not be released from prison for the time being
However, due to the existing risk, the request has been denied once again.
