Former striker Robinho left isolation in penitentiary 2 in Tremembé last Sunday. He now shares another cell with an inmate and can now receive visits from family members.

Convicted in Italy of rape, Robinho is arrested in Brazil 11 years after the crime

Imprisoned since the 21st to serve a nine-year sentence for the rape of a woman committed in Italy in 2013, Robinho had to spend a period of ten days without contact with other prisoners.

According to the SAP (Secretary of Penitentiary Administration) of São Paulo, the former athlete occupies an eight square meter cell and, “as long as documentation is presented in accordance with the requirements of the SAP Standard Internal Regime”, he will be able to receive visits at the end of week.

According to data from the secretariat, the penitentiary where Robinho is imprisoned has capacity for 348 prisoners, but the prison population is 283 people.

The former striker began serving the sentence he was sentenced to in Italy after the STJ (Superior Court of Justice) approved the sentence so that it can take effect in Brazil.

Robinho’s defense had an injunction denied in a Habeas Corpus request and is still trying other appeals for him to be free until the STJ’s decision has become final.

Understand Robinho’s case

Robinho was convicted in three instances of the Italian Court for the group rape of an Albanian woman, in 2013. The definitive decision, from the 3rd Criminal Section of the Supreme Court of Cassation, in Rome, is from January 2022, when the athlete had already returned to Brazil.

At the end of the same year, the Italian Ministry of Justice sent a request for Robinho’s extradition, which was denied by the Government – ​​the country does not extradite its natural citizens. Subsequently, the Italians contacted the STJ to have the sentence approved to take effect in Brazil.

Robinho judgment: sentence is approved. Decision is to serve the sentence immediately and in a closed regime

This was the request analyzed by the Special Court of the STJ. Brazilian justice does not discuss the merits of the Italian action, which condemned Robinho. The former player claims that the relationship was consensual with the woman and denies rape.

The crime took place in January 2013, at the Sio Café nightclub, in Milan. According to the investigation, Robinho and five other Brazilians participated in the act. In addition to the former player, another Brazilian, Ricardo Falco, was sentenced to the same nine years in prison.

Falco is also the target of a request from Italy to serve his sentence in Brazil. The case against him at the STJ has not yet been scheduled for trial.
