Alves’ defense calls for his release

The Brazilian international’s lawyers argue in their appeal that the risk of flight is “non-existent” as the evidence in the case provides “a solid perspective and muscle” for the defence. “Dani Alves can and wants to defend himself and will not evade the trial”, reiterates the letter.

Furthermore, for the lawyers, the footballer’s “escape adventure” is unthinkable because escape would mean “an unbearable burden for the subject and a useless disgrace for himself and for his family and children” which Alves “doesn’t want to provoke”.

To avoid the risk of absconding, Alves’ lawyers point out that he has a “life plan” in Barcelona, ​​​​where he has always wanted his children to receive university educationso he registered them in Spain, where his eldest son will be studying his last year of high school.

The appeal also refutes the arguments of the private prosecution, which supports it the risk of absconding de Alves resurrected after his wife, the model Joana Sanzannounced last month via social media her intention to separate from him after eight years of marriage.

With this in mind, the lawyers provided the Court of Barcelona with a screenshot of the footballer’s judicial file, in which there is no divorce petition deposited by his wife.

The images of the bowling alley, analyzed by investigators

Beyond denying a flight risk, much of Alves’ appeal comes into focus contest the victim’s story in the light of the images taken by the nightclub’s security cameras in the moments before the footballer and the complainant entered the bathroom where the rape allegedly took place.

The defence, which provided the court with an expert report analyzing the images, claims that this document is of “indisputable” usefulness and justifies that it was drawn up by an investigative agency on the basis that “those professionals handle the necessary computer programs” to zoom, slow down and speed up images without tampering.

Alves’ defense thus refutes the arguments of the investigating judge, who discredited the analysis of the videos by stating that they were nothing more than documentary evidence of one party, because they had not been “neither commissioned by the court nor carried out by the scientific police” .

The letter insists on questioning the story of the victim, who according to the defense is “dragged by a rush of events”, after which he “runs forward” to justify the reasons why he entered the bathroom with the footballer.

On the contrary, underlines the appeal, in his last appearance the suspect maintained a story “with solvency, linearity, without breaks in the contradictory and offering a covered version of rationality”, compared to his first “irregular and confused” statement, in which At all costs he tried to hide his infidelity from his wife.
