Ronaldinho has his cars and luxury items seized!
Breaking news – Former Brazil footballer Ronaldinho is currently being hunted by officials as he has reportedly failed to pay a fine of 8.5 million Brazilian Real (£1,800,000) to an environmental case against his institute! This has resulted in various of his assets being seized last Wednesday.
His ongoing dispute with the Brazilian authorities has led the legend to have his 3 luxury vehicles, televisions, snooker table, bar football table and a painting taken away to recuperate money owed for the building of the Instituto Ronaldinho Gaucho.
The building of the institute has allegedly caused major environmental damage – a native forest was cut down, there have been drainage issues and unlicensed movement of land.
On top of that, Ronaldinho’s passport had also been confiscated last month after investigations discovered he only has around £5,000,000 in his account.
Sergio Queiroz, his family lawyer, said that he would appeal the decision and the case is still ongoing.
