Lula Da Silva About The Dani Alves Release

The choice has attracted a lot of interest from around the world. Meanwhile Lula Da Silva came out with some statement about Dani Alves and his release.

"The money that Alves has, the money that someone can lend him, cannot buy the offense that a man does to a woman by committing rape," Lula said.

"When sex is something that is done between two, it has to be allowed and consented to by two. This, in fact, is a crime."

"Injustices about which we cannot remain silent. We are now seeing that Alves can be released if he pays. I learned in Pernambuco [Lula's home state], when I was a child, that people used to say here in the Northeast, they don't arrest the one who has 20 contos de reis [expression to indicate millions of reais, about three million euros]. People see how this maxim continues."

The victim's lawyer, Esther Garcia, has brought up debate over the case by questioning whether justice benefits wealthy individuals and claiming that a common person wouldn't have had the same opportunities.
