'Edenílson case';  STJD exposes “strong evidence” and asks for a complaint that could cost Rafael Ramos a heavy hook

This Friday (5), the process involving the side Rafael Ramos, about alleged racial injury made to Edenílson, from Internacional, was concluded and the auditor of the investigation, Paulo Sérgio Feuz sent a request for a complaint against the athlete of the Corinthians to the Sports Attorney General. The information is from Globoesporte.com.

The auditor pointed out “strong indications” of the offense and is based on the set of evidence that was prepared in the investigation: “In light of the foregoing and considering the set of probative elements capable of characterizing the practice of the sporting offense referred to in article 243-G, caput, of the CBJD, and the present investigation must be sent to the Sports Attorney General, for the measures of denunciation to the athlete Rafael Antônio Figueiredo Ramos, under the terms of article 82, paragraph 3, of the CBJD”, detailed Feuz.

However, when sought by the Globoesporte.com report, lawyer Daniel Bialski, who is part of Rafael Ramos’ defense, exposed arguments that, according to the professional, guarantee the innocence of the Portuguese full-back: “Existing expertise supports Rafael’s vehement denial of that he has not committed any racial offense against the other player. Regardless of the formal referrals from the Sports Justice, Rafael’s innocence will be proven”, he emphasized.

The Civil Police of Rio Grande do Sul released the conclusion of an analysis of a lip-reading report from the Instituto-Geral, in June, stating that it is not possible to identify what Rafael Ramos said to Edenílson at the time. The expertise made by the defense of the side also published the same conclusion.

If Rafael Ramos is punished, article 243-G of the Brazilian Sports Justice Code provides for a suspension of five to ten games for the athlete. A fine must also be applied: “Art. 243-G. Practicing a discriminatory, contemptuous or outrageous act, related to prejudice due to ethnic origin, race, sex, color, age, condition of elderly person or person with a disability: (Included by CNE Resolution No. 29 of 2009.) PENALTY: suspension of five to ten matches, if played by an athlete, even if he is an alternate, coach, doctor or member of the technical committee, and suspension for a period of one hundred and twenty to three hundred and sixty days, if practiced by any other natural person subject to this Code, in addition to a fine, from BRL 100.00 (one hundred reais) to BRL 100,000.00 (one hundred thousand reais). (Included by CNE Resolution No. 29 of 2009).”
