There is a new chapter in the Robinho case. The Italian government has asked Brazil to carry out the nine-year prison sentence against the former footballer, who won the Scudetto in Milan in 2011 with Massimiliano Allegri’s Milan, convicted of rape. The information was exclusively disclosed by the Uol portal, citing the regulation.
Justice Minister Carlo Nordio signed the request on January 24 and sent it to the Brazilian government through diplomatic channels on January 31. The Italian authorities are also asking for the execution of the sentence against Ricardo Falco, a friend of the former AC Milan striker. The two were convicted in Italy for the rape of a young Albanian girl that took place in Milan on January 22, 2013. Nordio – as reported by Uol – asks “that the case be submitted to the competent Brazilian judicial authority so that it, in accordance with under Brazilian law, the execution of the nine-year prison sentence imposed on Robson de Souza by the judgment of the Milan Court of November 23, 2017, which became final on January 19, 2013”. Furthermore, the Italian government explains that in September 2022, the Ministry of Justice asked Brazil to extradite Robinho and Falco, a request that was rejected last November because Article 5 of the Brazilian Constitution prohibits the extradition of nationals.
