SEARCH: Dani Alves says he wants to protect the girl who accused him of making false statements.
MOSCOW, February 20 – RIA Novosti. Former Barcelona football player Dani Alves said he tried to protect the girl from the charges of reverse sexual violence with a false statement she gave in one of the interrogations about the rape case, according to ARA’s report.
In early January, Alves was reported to the police by an unnamed woman. He accused her of sexual assault, rape and battering at a nightclub in Barcelona. The footballer denied his guilt. According to ARA, he presented three different versions of what happened on January 23. At first he told the judge that there was nothing between him and the girl, but during a meeting with representatives of the prosecution, Alves said that he met the girl in the toilet. After the prosecution presented the football player with evidence of a connection between him and the girl, he stated that he himself was the victim of the victim’s aggressive behavior.
On January 20, the Barcelona Court refused to release Alves on bail, setting a preventive measure in the form of detention. The Brazilian faces 4 to 12 years in prison. On February 20 or 21, the court will consider a motion to change the restraining order for the former Barcelona player. Cristobal Martell, the lawyer of Alves, who was previously one of the most respected lawyers in criminal law, submitted a 24-page document to the court, guaranteeing that Alves would not escape and would be in Spain until the court decision.
Alves is the most decorated player in history. He has 46 trophies. As part of Barcelona, he became six-time champion of Spain, four-time winner of the Spanish Cup and Super Cup, three-time Champions League. Alves has also played for Sevilla, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain and Brazilian teams Bahia and Sao Paulo.
