Ronaldinho From Prison To House Arrest


Ronaldinho, ex-Brazilia soccer star, has been released from prison in Paraguay.

But he is not completely a freed man as he has been placed under house arrest.

Local media reports in Paraguay as monitored by African Entertainment say the 2005 Ballon d’Or winner and his brother posted a bail amount of $800,000 (£648,000) each.

They were previously denied bail after being accused of traveling to the South American nation with fake passports.

The duo are now to stay in a four-star hotel in Asuncion as they await trial.

Ronaldinho and his brother Roberto Assis have denied any wrongdoing, with their lawyer describing their imprisonment “arbitrary, abusive and illegal.”

Judge Gustavo Amarilla, according to reports, granted bail to the two.

Ronaldinho, aged 40, won the 2002 World Cup with Brazil.

He moved on to play for French side PSG and Spanish giant, Barcelona.

He also had a spell with Italian side AC Milan.
