Alleged Sexual Assault: Spanish Court Grants Alves €1m Bail

Former Brazilian star, Dani Alves will be heaving a brief sigh of relief after the Spanish Court on Wednesday granted him bail of €1 million.

The court’s decision comes after Alves’ defense requested his release on Tuesday, despite opposition from the prosecution and the victim’s legal team.

According to Dailymail, Alves was found guilty of rape last month and sentenced to four and a half years in jail, as well as paying €150k in damages.

The victim, prosecution and defence have all appealed the decision, the former two seeking longer sentences and the latter seeking acquittal.

Alves will be allowed to leave jail under a series of conditions though as he awaits the result of his appeal.

He will have both of his passports taken from him, is now allowed to come within 1,000m of the victim or any of the places they frequent, and he will also have to attend a weekly meeting with the legal authorities, as well as attending all of their calls.

However, in setting the €1 million bail, the judges have taken into account that Alves will soon receive an important sum of funds held by the Spanish tax authorities.
