Ronaldinho Passport Seized For Owing £1.75m With Just £5 In His Account

Former Brazil and Barcelona star, Ronaldinho, has had his passport seized for owing £1.75m with just £5 in his bank account.

A judge in Brazil has Ronaldinho‘s international passport seized in a bid to ensure he doesn’t flee the country after it was gathered that he has just £5 in his bank account despite owing a massive £1.75million.

TheSun reports that the Brazil legend, 38, was fined heavily for illegal construction in a protected area in his home country, along with his brother Roberto Assis.

Along with company Reno Constructions and Incorporations Ltd., they were found to have built a sugar mill with a fishing platform and a pier in a permanent preservation area on Lake Guaíba without permission.

However, despite remortgaging the property, Ronaldinho is said to be unable to pay his debt due to the sky-high interest rate and reports in Spain now claim he has just £5.24 left in his bank account.

“There is no other measure than the retention of the passports as a coercive measure in the face of repeated unfair, abusive and total disrespect, disobedience and non-compliance with the legal system,” the prosecutor argued.
