Regarding the contradictions in Alves’ versions, Martell explained that he lied “to protect his family” and because of a great “fear of revealing in public that he had been unfaithful to his wife.” In his first statement, Alves said that he did not know the girl who accused him of sexually assaulting him, and later that the relationships had been “consensual.”

The athlete and his defense are changing their strategy to get him out of prison provisionally and will present an appeal this Monday. They consider that “there is no risk of flight in someone who voluntarily appeared from Mexico.” Alves would accept the withdrawal of his passport and the possibility of appearing every 15 days in court as a precautionary measure. “The resolution of the appeal is somewhat fast, about 20 days. It depends on the agility of the court,” has qualified Martell, who has also legally advised other celebrities such as Lionel Messi.
