A Spanish prosecutor is seeking a prison term of nine years for ex-Brazil and Barcelona defender Dani Alves.
Legal Proceedings Unfold
A 40-year-old individual, Alves, is poised to face trial in Spain following allegations of sexual assault dating back to last December. The case involves an incident at a Barcelona nightclub, leading to Alves’ arrest in January. He has remained in custody without bail.
Initially refuting any sexual encounter, Alves later asserted that the interaction was consensual. Despite this claim, the legal process has continued, with the prosecutor seeking stringent measures if found guilty.
The prosecution is pushing for a restraining order post-jail term and a compensation payout of 150,000 euros (£130,500) to the accuser.
Legal proceedings advanced in August when a Barcelona court formally indicted Alves. Subsequently, the court deemed the evidence substantial enough to warrant a trial, marking a significant development in the case. However, a trial date for Alves is yet to be established.
Repercussions and Career Impact
Alves, a former player for Brazil during the last World Cup, faced professional consequences as well. His contract with the Mexican club UNAM was terminated following his arrest, further impacting his career trajectory.
The impending trial signifies a critical juncture in this high-profile case, with legal determinations crucial in shaping the outcome for both Alves and the accuser.
