SAO PAULO (AP) — Prosecutors have seized three luxury cars and a painting in connection with an environmental case against the Ronaldinho Institute in the southern Brazilian city of Porto Alegre.
The prosecutor’s office of Rio Grande do Sul state said in a statement on Thursday that the assets belonged to former Brazil forward Ronaldinho’s brother-agent Roberto de Assis.
De Assis and the now-defunct Ronaldinho Institute have been targeted over an outstanding debt. Two BMWs and a Mercedes-Benz vehicle were seized.
De Assis and the institute are alleged to have removed vegetation and drained the land in 2007 without an environmental license.
