Summary:

  • Daniel Alves granted provisional freedom
  • Conditions include:
    • Prohibition on leaving Spain
    • Confiscation of passports
    • Weekly visits to court
    • No contact with the victim

Besides the €1 million bail, the Barcelona Court imposed further restrictions on Daniel Alves for granting him parole. The decision was announced on Wednesday.

He is barred from exiting Spanish territory and is required to surrender all passports to the courts. Additionally, he must attend court in the Catalan capital weekly and as many times as summoned by the Judicial Authority.

Furthermore, Daniel Alves is prohibited from contacting the victim, a 23-year-old woman whose identity has been kept confidential throughout the proceedings.

The court decision states that Daniel Alves is forbidden from approaching within a thousand meters of the victim’s residence, workplace, or any other location frequented by her.

At a hearing on Tuesday, Alves’ defense formally requested his release pending the trial for the appeal of his conviction.

I won’t flee; I have faith in justice,” declared Daniel Alves during the hearing, where he appeared via videoconference.

Initial Conviction:

Back in February, Alves received a four-and-a-half-year prison sentence for the charge of sexual assault, stemming from an accusation of rape in a Barcelona nightclub. Following the appeal from the former player’s defense, they requested that Alves be released pending the final decision.

The judges ruled that if Alves’ defense pays the bail, both his Brazilian and Spanish passports will be taken away.

“The court’s decision, with a majority vote and an individual one, states: ‘We agree on Daniel Alves’ provisional arrest, which can be avoided by posting a bond of 1,000,000 euros. Upon verification of payment, his provisional release is granted, along with the confiscation of both Spanish and Brazilian passports, a ban on leaving the country, and the requirement to appear before this Provincial Court weekly, as well as whenever summoned by the Judicial Authority’,” the sentence declared.

The Spanish Prosecutor’s Office sought a 9-year sentence for Daniel Alves, while the victim’s defense requested 12 years in prison.

According to the ruling, the court considered a mitigating circumstance for Alves due to his attempt to compensate the victim. “Before the trial, the defense deposited 150 thousand euros into the court’s account to be given to the victim regardless of the trial’s outcome, which, according to the court, shows a desire for compensation.”

As a result, Alves’ sentence was reduced because of this mitigating factor, not due to his intoxicated state, an argument the defense used during the trial to potentially reduce the sentence.

What the Accuser Alleges:

The woman accusing Daniel Alves of rape recounts that on the night of the alleged incident, she was with a friend and a cousin in the VIP section of the Sutton nightclub. She claims to have danced with the player and his friends before the athlete suggested they go to another location.

According to her, she believed this new venue would also have a VIP area. However, upon entering, she realized it was a small bathroom with only a toilet and a sink. It’s there, she alleges, that the rape occurred.
