A Brazilian minister defends that Robinho go to jail "immediately"

The Brazilian Minister for Women, Family and Human Rights, Damares Alves, demanded the player's imprisonment.


The Brazilian Minister of Women, Family and Human Rights, Damares Alves, defended this Monday that Brazilian striker Robinho, convicted in Italy of sexual violence, should go to jail "immediately". "Jail immediately, I have no more to say. There is still an appeal, but the leakage of the audios ... What else do you want? Jail. No rapist can be applauded," Alves told reporters in Brasilia, completely outraged by the matter. .

Last week, Robinho, former player of Real Madrid, Manchester City and AC Milan, saw his signing for Santos, the Brazilian club where he trained, frustrated after pressure from sponsors for the nine-year prison sentence that weighs on his against.

The 36-year-old forward was sentenced in 2017 to nine years in prison by a Milan court for his alleged involvement in a gang rape against a 23-year-old girl of Albanian origin. The event occurred in 2013 in a nightclub in the Italian city. Robinho assures that he is innocent and that the sex was consensual with the woman.

Despite these judicial problems, Santos announced on the 10th the return of Robinho for a symbolic salary, which generated a wave of criticism and the threat of several of his sponsors, which, in the end, forced the board to cancel your hiring.

"Does the guy want to go back to the field to pose as a hero?" Asked Damares, who is an evangelical pastor, to later praise Santos' decision to terminate the attacker's contract.

In the midst of all this controversy, the 'GloboEsporte' portal published the transcripts of the telephone jabs that the Italian Justice used to convict Robinho, in which the footballer stated that the case mattered to him "a damn" because "the woman was completely drunk. "

"The sensation of that caused me nausea, I wanted to vomit. It was fatal to read what I read about a player of his size," said the minister about those calls filtered by the aforementioned medium. "This is a crime that does not deserve any consideration for the abuser, the rapist. We do not have to make concessions with this type of crime. You have to serve the established penalty, either there or here, immediately," he completed.

However, the sentence handed down by the Italian justice is not final and there is room for appeal, so Robinho still cannot be arrested. The Constitution also prohibits the extradition of born Brazilians, although, eventually, the authorities of both countries could reach an agreement to serve the sentence in Brazilian territory.
