The Brazilian Justice refuses to withdraw Robinho’s passport after being sentenced to nine years

the mess with Robson de Souza ‘Robinho’ is served. All paths indicate that the former soccer player will have to serve a prison sentence in his country after being accused by the Italian Justice, and that the Brazilian Justice also confirmed, of rape while he was a member of the ranks of the AC Milan. Even so, he has received what appears to be good news: his passport will not be withdrawn.

Through the decision made by the Superior Court of Justice (STJ) from Brazil, the request to have his passport taken away was refused. A response from the president of the STJ, the judge Maria Thereza de Assis Mourawhich denied an appeal filed by the Brazilian Women’s Uniona civil association present in 25 of the 27 states of the country, which requested this measure due to “the risk” that Robinho would leave the national territory.

According to the ruling, the organization points out that the “outstanding social relevance, given that there would be notable impunity for soccer players in cases of sexual violence” is one of the characteristics of the case. Despite this, the Superior Court of Justice decided not to continue with said process further.

One of the main reasons indicated by Maria Thereza de Assis Moura for rejecting the request of the Brazilian Union of Women was that she considered that its analysis is “premature” given that the process is incipient and still “has not even been cited “to the former player of real MadridAC Milan or Manchester City to testify in the case.

The Italian Justice requested the extradition of the 39-year-old former soccer player, but it has not been possible because there is no such agreement between the transalpine country and Brazil.
