Prosecutors proposed an alternative form of punishment but the Judge Presiding over the case refused the plea.

Their hotel room was searched by detectives who sorted to find more information on the two brothers.

They are currently placed under pre-trial detention pending a final ruling of the same.

This is not the first time the Brazilian star has been on the wrong side of the law as in July 2019 he was questioned over failure to pay taxes.

He had at the same time been accused of illegally constructing a building along a nature reserve.

Irrespective of his name, authorities in Paraguay insisted that the law shall be used to determine the case.
