The public prosecutor’s office asked to close the investigation against the two brothers and a judge will now fix a final hearing to confirm the terms.

The plea bargain included a guilty plea from the two men for entering Paraguay with fake passports and fines of $90,000 and $110,000 respectively, for Ronaldinho and Roberto. Roberto agreed to a criminal record in Paraguay, but Ronaldinho’s record will be clean there.

The plea deal also stipulates that Ronaldinho can leave Brazil at any time, though he must tell Paraguayan officials how long he will be away. Roberto is not permitted to leave Brazil for two years.
