Ronaldinho and his brother Roberto Assis have both been released from jail. But these brothers will be placed into house arrest in Paraguay after he and his brother paid $1.6m in bail.
The former Barcelona, AC Milan, PSG midfielder, who won the World Cup with Brazil in 2002, was arrested on March 6 with his brother and business manager Roberto Assis.
Ronaldinho & his brother Roberto Assis were taken into custody by Paraguayan authorities. They were accused of attempting to enter Paraguay possessing forged Paraguayan passports.
The judge placed the pair under house arrest at the Palmaroga hotel in Asuncion while they awaited their trial and will be allowed to receive visits.
Ronaldinho and his brother both deposited $800,000 bail each into a local bank account on Tuesday.
“It’s a significant bail in cash to guarantee they will not flee,” judge Gustavo Amarilla said.
