A BOLA – Corinthians Portuguese defender detained on racist charges but claims misunderstanding (video) (Brazil)



A BOLA - Corinthians Portuguese defender detained on racist charges but claims misunderstanding (video) (Brazil)

Portuguese defender Ramos from Corinthians was arrested last night in Porto Alegre, where the club met Internacional, following allegations of racism by player Edenilson, who filed a police complaint while still at the stadium. The player was detained on the spot to testify and released on bail of 10,000 reais, about 1,900 euros.

The confusion happened 15 minutes before the end of the game, when Edenilson had a disagreement with the Portuguese, and he went to the referee – the match was stopped for four minutes, accusing Rafael of calling him a “monkey”; the Portuguese defended that he only exclaimed “fuck you, damn it,” a defense he maintained even after his arrest, stating a misunderstanding.

“Rafael Ramos was detained at the scene of the crime for racial slurs. He denies these insults, claiming that it was a misunderstanding because he is Portuguese, about which he used a different expression. He paid bail and was released to leave with the Corinthians. The judge was not present, but was warned and included in the report. The player will be free to react to the process and the case will be investigated with more witnesses or lip reading. He was arrested because he committed a crime subject to bail. If he hadn’t posted bail, he could have gone to jail,” delegate Carlo Butarelli said at the stadium.

Rafael Ramos explained his point of view: “I am here with a clear conscience and a clear head to explain what happened. It was a pure misunderstanding between me and Edenilson. At the end of the game I was with him and we had a quiet conversation, I explained what happened. He explained what he really understood, which is not true. I explained the truth of what I said. That’s what happened. We had a quiet conversation. He showed a fear of being a liar, I told him that he was not a liar, he just put it wrong. We shook hands and I wished him good luck.”

Later on Instagram, the player returned to his defense. “There are very few things in our lives that we are absolutely sure of. This is one of them. I was not, am not and never will be a racist. Thank God, I was brought up with the full realization that we are all equal in this life, with the same rights and the same responsibilities. So, with that confidence, I went to explain myself to my professional colleague. I have always focused on the correct posture throughout my career, and it cannot be otherwise now. This case served to raise the issue again. And we can all confirm this: no racism!”

Match referee Braulio Machado also testified and recounted the incident in his report. The judge’s report, cited by Globoesporte, reported Edenilson’s indictment and Rafael Ramos’s assertion, but according to the document, no member of the arbitration team was able to hear what happened.

“At the 31st minute of the 2nd half, at the moment when the match was stopped, I was informed by the number 8 player of the SC International team, Mr. Black. Edenilson Andrade dos Santos, that his opponent No. 21 Mr. Rafael Antonio Figueiredo Ramos uttered the following words in his direction: “to hell with the monkey”; at this point I stop the game and call the players involved to report what happened and player Edenilson confirms the above words and player Rafael Ramos says there was a misunderstanding due to his accent (Portuguese) and says that he said the following words “fuck fuck”. Due to the distance between the athletes and the noise of the crowd, neither I nor any other member of the judging panel can hear or understand any of the words mentioned above. So I keep playing.”

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
