The Prosecutor’s Office has opposed the release of former Barça player Dani Alves understanding that the risk of flight persists, given his economic capacity and the high penalty imposed, while The footballer has claimed that he believes in justice and that he does not plan to flee.

The 21st section of the Barcelona Court held a hearing this Tuesday to decide if he releases the footballer provisionally as his defense has requested waiting for the sentence that sentenced him to be final four and a half years in prison for raping a woman in a Barcelona nightclub.

At the end of the hearing, Alves intervened by videoconference from Brians 2 prison, where he has been in provisional detention for more than a year.

I believe in justice. I’m not going to run away“, he assured.

The Court will decide shortly whether to release Alves, while the Superior Court of Justice of Catalonia (TSJC) has on the table the appeals that the Prosecutor’s Office, the private prosecution exercised by the victim and the defense have presented against the sentence that sentenced to four and a half years in prison for raping a young woman in the bathroom of a booth at the Sutton nightclub in Barcelona on December 30, 2022.

The prosecution, that in his appeal against the sentence he asks the Court to sentence Alves to nine years in prisonhas asked the court to keep the footballer in prison, arguing that he still exists risk of flight, if possible even more so after the sentence, since the penalty remains high.

Some arguments that have also been put forward by the private prosecution exercised by the victim, through her lawyer, Ester Garcia, which has also emphasized the economic resources of the defendant.

However, the defense argues that this economic capacity is not such, given that as a result of his arrest, the sponsorship agreements that Alves had signed with several brands were terminated. He lost his job at the Pumas soccer club in Mexico and has not yet collected the amount owed by the Treasury for a tax dispute that was resolved in his favor.

The lawyer, Inés Guardiola, also argues that Alves served a quarter of his sentence on March 5, so if the sentence is final You could now enjoy permits and even access third gradethat the sentence imposed is much lower than that requested by the accusations – nine and twelve years – and that the TSJC may take up to a year to resolve the matter.

As alternatives, the defense, which in its appeal to the TSJC once again requests acquittal, accepts that Alves be imposed a bail of 50,000 euros, in addition to the withdrawal of the passport and weekly appearances in court.
