Eight fans were arrested after the invasion on the field in Vila Belmiro during Santos’ 1-0 victory over Corinthians, yesterday (13), for the return game of the round of 16 of the Copa do Brasil. The invaders were referred to the Special Criminal Court (Jecrim) which confirmed the number of detainees also reported by Peixe. In the summary, however, the report is of seven people arrested.
“It was informed by the match delegate, Mr Wilson Roberto Santoro, that seven fans who invaded the field were arrested and sent to Jecrim, however, until the closing of this summary, no police record number was informed”, says the signed document. by referee Jean Pierre Gonçalves Lima.
One of these fans went up and attacked goalkeeper Cássio, from Corinthians. The blow didn’t quite hit him because Marcos Leonardo and security reduced the attacker’s speed. Lighted flags and throwing objects and bombs in the field were also recorded. After 4-0 at Neo Química Arena, Peixe was eliminated.
Santos can be punished by the Superior Court of Sports Justice (STJD). At first, the framework will be in article 213 of the Brazilian Code of Sports Justice (CBJD), which deals with disorders in the sports square. Depending on the seriousness of the case, the penalty can reach the loss of field orders, in addition to a fine of up to R$ 100 thousand.
The prosecutor’s office has the power to request a stadium ban in response to episodes of violence. But this hypothesis, at first, is ruled out. The scenario can change if there is a realization that the club will not guarantee security for the next matches.
Santos did not comment until the publication of this report. The club should issue a statement on the matter during this Thursday (14).
