Dani Alves Gets $1.1m Post Conviction Bail 


BRAZILIAN soccer player Dani Alves can be conditionally released from jail on a 1 million euro ($1.08 million) bail after serving about a quarter of his four-and-a-half-year sentence for rape, a Barcelona court ruled on Wednesday.

The conditions for Alves’ release include relinquishing both his Brazilian and Spanish passports so he cannot leave Spain as well as an obligation to appear before the court weekly.

The court also imposed a restraining order, barring Alves from approaching the victim.

Alves’ lawyer was not immediately available for comment.

The decision, which was not unanimous due to a dissenting vote from one of the judges, can still be appealed.
