Ronaldinho Released From Paraguayan Prison

64


Former Barcelona superstar Ronaldinho has been released from a Paraguayan prison after just 32 days over forged documentation.

The 40-year-old is set to be put on house arrest at a hotel in the country’s capital of Asuncion after reportedly paying a £1.3million bond.

Both he and his brother Roberto were charged with attempting to enter the country with fake passports last month, and had been faced with six months jail time.

But judge Gustavo Amarilla has permitted them both to stay at a hotel for the mean time, with the case still being decided and the player’s lawyers attempting to appeal the decision to jail him.

It had been argued that he should be spared from facing prison due to his high-profile status as a former footballer.
