Dani Alves: The 15 minutes captured by the security camera in the bathroom that could convict him

Further details of what allegedly happened in the bathroom of a nightclub in Barcelona between the complainant and footballer Dani Alves on the night of December 30, 2022, continue to emerge. The Brazilian player has been in prison on remand without bail in the town of Sant Esteve Sesrovires since last Friday, accused of raping a 23-year-old girl in the private toilet of a nightclub.

According to information from the Spanish newspaper El Periodico, both Alves and the woman were in the bathroom for around a quarter of an hour. This is what can be deduced from the recordings of the nightclub’s security cameras, which are being analyzed as part of the police investigation.

According to the complainant’s account, also revealed by El Periodico, Alves forced her to sit on top of him, threw her to the floor, forced her to perform fellatio on him, which she actively resisted, slapped her, lifted her off the floor and penetrated her until he ejaculated.

On the night of December 30, the victim was taken to the Hospital Clinic in Barcelona, where she was examined for traces of biological evidence.

Dani Alves’ three versions of events presented to the judge

As for Alves‘ statement before the judge, the player acknowledged, according to the TV3 channel, that he was in the nightclub, but maintained that he was only there for a short period of time and denied the sexual aggression attributed to him by the victim.

The footballer, on the other hand, gave three different versions: first he said that he did not know the girl he allegedly sexually assaulted, then he said that he had seen her but that nothing happened and, finally, he stated that she was the one who threw herself on him.

Alleged victim waives compensation

On the other hand, according to the newspaper El Pais, which cites sources from the investigation, the victim of the alleged rape of Dani Alves has rejected offers to be compensated by the footballer. Her objective is that justice be done and that the Brazilian pay with jail for what, according to her version, happened that night.

Dani Alves sacked by Pumas

Following his imprisonment, the president of Pumas, the Liga MX club where Dani Alves was playing, announced the player’s dismissal.

“We cannot allow the conduct of any person to damage our work philosophy,” said club president, Leopoldo Silva.
