Dani Alves asks for telematic bracelet to avoid jail
The Brazilian, in his eagerness to escape detention, has shown himself willing to carry this accessory that allows him to be tracked remotely.
Dani Alves is fighting along with his lawyers to try to get out of Brians 2 prison where he is being held. His new lawyer, Cristóbal Martorell, is preparing an appeal to justify that there is no flight risk with his client and, among the preventive measures he is contemplating to demonstrate this, the imposition of a telematic bracelet is included.
Alves could wear geo-tracking bracelet
With this accessory, the former Barcelona player’s location would be monitored at all times, and it is a device normally used in the case of sexual crimes. There are already many precedents for its use in Spain.
The Government Delegate against Gender Violence, Victoria Rosell, spoke precisely last Wednesday on this issue. The magistrate confirmed that the device was being used by authorities, although she did not give specific numbers. However, she did clarify that its use was limited to people already convicted, a fact that differs from the case of Alves, who remains in pretrial detention as he awaits a firm conviction or being acquitted.
How the telematic bracelet works
These bracelets are intended to prevent aggressors from approaching their victims at less than the established distance. In the case of Dani Alves, it would also make it possible to guarantee that the Brazilian does not leave Spanish soil; one of the main concerns of justice authorities given the player’s wealth and in the absence of an extradition treaty with Brazil.
The device emits a GPS signal that is captured by satellites that allow the exact position of the individual in question to be identified. As part of the agreement, specific locations can be included as no go areas.
What happens if the bracelet is removed?
Removing or breaking the bracelet is a fairly simple task but one that has consequences. The authorities would instantly receive a notification and the subject would be committing a serious crime punishable by a fine and six to twelve months in prison.
