Asuncion. Renowned Brazilian football player Ronaldinho has been in custody for the past 70 days in Paraguay due to the use of a forged passport, but now his lawyer hopes that he will soon be allowed to return home.
“We are hoping to convince the prosecution to allow Ronaldinho and his brother to return home,” defense sources told AFP. We can’t do anything except wait for the investigation to end. ”
Ronaldinho and his brother, once awarded the year’s Best Footballer of the Year, could face a five-year prison sentence if found guilty. Both these brothers spent more than a month in jail upon entering Paraguay on a forged passport. After this, both of them deposited bail amounting to $ 1.6 million.
