remember the case

Internacional and Corinthians played on the 14th in Porto Alegre. On the field, midfielder Edenilson, a member of the home team, accused Rafael Ramos of a racial insult to referee Braulio da Silva Machado. It was contained in a summary protest, a document that was the basis for the arrest of the Portuguese player, even before the Inter player filed a complaint.

In the summary, Braulio described what he had heard from the players: “In the 31st minute of the second half, when the game was at a standstill, I was informed. [por Edenilson] that’s your opponent [Rafael Ramos], he said, ‘Fuck you, monkey.’ At this point, I stop the game and call the participating players to let them know what happened. Rafael Ramos says he was misunderstood by his (Portuguese) accent and says the following words: ‘Fuck, fuck’ “.

-n Instagram, Edenilson said he “knows what he heard” and that this was “the first time this has happened to him.” “It reminds me that I’m focusing on something other than playing football: being cursed for my skin tone,” he said. “I looked for the athlete, he came out and apologized to me, after all, we all make mistakes and we have a right to admit it, but he kept saying I misunderstood. I didn’t understand. It’s wrong.”

After the match against Independiente Medellín, the player spoke again about the case, when he scored two goals and celebrated with a gesture against racism. According to him, many people tried him for the accusation.

Rafael Ramos, who paid bail on the night of the Beira-Rio match, said Edenilson’s accusation would be “pure misunderstanding”. “I’m here with a clear conscience and a clear head. I went to have a conversation with him at the end of the game, we had a quiet conversation. I explained what had happened, what he explained. I understood. I explained the truth. I explained to him that he was a liar, that he had come out wrong. We shook his hand and I wish him good luck, “he said.

The Rio Grande do Sul Civil Police are investigating an investigation into the allegation of racial pretense, and this week Rafael Ramos requested images of those who would commit the crime against Edenilson.

On 18 May, the Plenary Session of the Senate approved a bill (PL 4.566 / 2021) increasing the penalties for racial violence during sporting events. Currently, the Penal Code provides for a sentence of one to three years in prison. The text calls for an extension of two to five years. He was directed to the PL Chamber.
