The trial of former footballer Dani Alves, accused of raping a 23-year-old girl at a nightclub in Barcelona in December 2022, is ongoing. The second day of interrogations took place on February 6, with around twenty witnesses participating to clarify what happened. Alves’ defense is based on the claim that he was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the events.
One of the witnesses, Bruno Brasil, a friend of Alves who was with him on the night of the alleged attack, stated that they had been drinking and socializing before going to the nightclub. Brasil emphasized that Alves was intoxicated and unable to drive, so he had to take the car himself. He also described the interaction between Alves and the complainant as respectful and consensual.
During questioning, Brasil’s statements were met with skepticism from the Prosecutor’s Office, as they found contradictions in his testimony. For example, he initially claimed that Alves went to the bathroom because of a stomach issue, but later said that he did not know the reason.
The trial is ongoing, and the testimonies of the witnesses will play a crucial role in determining the outcome of the case. The defense will continue to argue that Alves was not in a state to commit the alleged crime due to his intoxication. The prosecution, on the other hand, will seek to establish the events of that night and prove the guilt of the accused. The trial has garnered significant attention, and the final verdict will have far-reaching implications for both the accused and the victim.
