Former soccer player Emerson elder – Marcio Passos Albuquerque, who played for Corinthians, Flamengo and Fluminense, among other major clubs, will have to comply with a series of precautionary measures, after he was denounced by the Public Ministry of the State of Rio de Janeiro (MPRJ) for aiding bicheiro Bernardo Bello in money laundering.

On Friday (10), the MPRJ carried out an operation to arrest Bernardo Bello. The perpetrator has not been found and is on the run. He, Sheikh and seven other people were charged with Bello-related offenses. The judge accepted the complaint and Emerson and the co-defendants became defendants.

According to the judicial decision that received the complaint, the sheikh will have to:

  • Inform the court, within a maximum of 15 days, of the telephone numbers at which they can be contacted, including the WhatsApp messaging application;
  • maintain an updated address with the Tribunal for communications on procedural acts, including by means of a letter application;
  • prohibition from being absent for more than 15 days from the district in which they reside without judicial permission;
  • appear every two months in court to justify their activities;
  • – Prevent contact with other defendants, with the exception of family members.

What does the complaint say?

According to the investigation, Bello and Sheik exchanged the former player’s penthouse apartment for a house in Barra da Tijuca. Despite declaring no amount, Bello transferred “except for the official real estate transaction”, in four cash deposits, of R$473,550.00 to the sheikh – according to the MPRJ, “were secretly used as part of payment for the purchase of a property”.

However, according to the MPRJ, the amounts were not passed through Belo’s bank accounts and were not recorded in the bonds. According to the complaint, the sheikh complied with the “intimidating behavior of Bernardo Bello” and “allowed the indicated deposits to be made into his bank account, without appearing in the public title deed, without declaring them to the Federal Revenue Service, and disguising the origin, nature and amounts as will be illicit as will be detailed below.”
