No position from Brazilian national team or CBF players on the rape cases involving Daniel Alves and Robinho, the head of the delegation in Europe and president of Palmeiras, Leila Pereira, felt obliged to speak this Thursday (21). She criticized the Spanish court’s decision to grant provisional freedom to the former full-back.

The leader also sees the development of the two cases as ‘a slap in the face to women’.

“No one says anything, but I, as a woman here at the head of the delegation, have to take a stand on the cases of Robinho and Daniel Alves. This is a slap in the face to all of us women, especially the case of Daniel Alves, who paid for freedom. I think it’s important for me to take a stand. Each case of impunity is the seed of the next crime”, said Leila to the website ‘Uol’.

Daniel Alves has been in prison since January 10, 2023 in Barcelona and was sentenced to four and a half years in prison for the rape of a young woman at the end of December 2022, in a nightclub in the Catalan city. However, on Wednesday (20) he managed to provisional release with payment of 1 million euros (5.4 million reais)while the appeals are evaluated in court.
Robinho was sentenced, in January 2022, to nine years in prison for the crime of sexual violence in a group in Italy, due to a case that occurred in a nightclub in Milan, in 2013. However, the former player was already in Brazil at the time of the Italian court’s decision and was released.
Only on Wednesday O Superior Court of Justice (STJ) ruled that Robinho must serve his sentence on Brazilian soil. The ministers also decided that he be arrested immediately and in a closed regime, but the His defense filed a habeas corpus with the Federal Supreme Court (STF).
