Ronaldinho fails to testify in crypto scam probe, faces possible arrest in Brazil By Cointelegraph


Brazilian soccer star Ronaldinho Gaúcho could be detained by authorities to testify over a crypto fraud investigation in Brazil. According to local media reports, Ronaldinho failed to appear before the country’s Congress over a pyramid scheme probe allegedly linked to one of his companies.

The former Paris Saint-Germain, F.C Barcelona and AC Milan star ignored a subpoena for a second time on Aug. 24 and failed to testify at a congressional hearing, citing adverse weather conditions. According to Congressman Aureo Ribeiro, he will have another opportunity to testify on Aug. 31. In the event that Ronaldinho fails to appear, law enforcement officials may take him before the committee.
