Ronaldinho Is in serious difficulties in these moments for having purchased false documentation in his trip to Paraguay. The Brazilian and his brother and representative tried to go in in the country with false passports and right now are on remanded. The maximum time in which they could be there is of six months, since the judge of the Case, Clara Ruiz, has ensured that runs risk of escape if it allows that they are in domiciliary arrest.

"We are in front of a grave punishable fact because it attacked against the interests of the Republic of Paraguay. It gathers all the requirements to be on remanded right now. There is danger of escape, since it does not have rootings in the country, went in of illegal form and is remaining of illegal form. Therefore the court considered that it was still in prison", commented the judge to explain the decision.

His lawyer, Adolfo Martín, has wanted to launch something of light in the case and has explained that his represented did not have neither idea that the passports that were giving him were not authentic. For the letrado, Ronaldinho is "silly" by not to have it known before. "The Justice has not understood that Ronaldinho did not know that it was committing a crime because it did not understand that they gave him some false documents, he is silly", admitted to the newspaper Folha of São Paulo.

The one of the ex Barcelona is an odd case in which already there is several imputed, as Dalia López, that purportedly would be one of the people related with the documentation to the brothers. The Paraguayan employer hired to the ex player to put his image in a campaign of free sanitary assistance to boys and girls of Paraguay. Ella and Wilmondes Sousa, Brazilian employer, received to Ronaldinho in the airport. Sousa Went purportedly the one who gave him the documentation to the ex of the Milan, although his lawyers say that it was the Paraguayan.

These false documents would be two Paraguayan passports authentic, although with irregularities that have finished showing, in addition to two cédulas of false identity. By all this, 'Ronnie' and his agent and brother are right now in prison until it go out the trial. It will be necessary to see in what remain all this, although what is sure is that the ex footballer will have very complicated to go out impune of this case.

The Argentinian has ensured that "the truth always goes out forward", leaving clear that his fellow is innocent. "Fellow wanted strength Ronaldinho, the truth always goes out forward.
