New Revelation To Get Ronaldinho Into Trouble?

After Ronaldinho was granted bail and left prison to go into house arrest in Paraguay, there are new revelations in his case that could get him back into trouble.

The 39-year-old was released from jail last week following a month behind bars after he and his brother Roberto Assis were caught with fake passports.

The FC Barcelona and Brazil legend and his brother were granted bail worth $1.6 million (R29 million) and placed under house arrest in a hotel in Asuncion.

The pair have claimed they did not know the passports were fake, but one of the prosecutors involved in the investigation has now insisted the opposite.

"They knew," public prosecutor Alicia Sapriza told AFP.

"From the contents of his phone calls that have been examined, there was a certain conversation with the brother Roberto in which the documents were discussed," before they arrived in Paraguay, Saprizia explained.

"Ronaldinho could not be unaware. He cannot claim to have been acting in good faith."

Investigators are reportedly still trying to determine if the former player was being used as a cover in a plot or if he willingly lent himself to an alleged money laundering and contraband operation to dispel possible suspicion.
