His name is Rui Pinto and he is the Football Leaks hacker. He uncovered corruption in football with € 1,000M in tax havens. None of those convicted of fraud has ever been to prison. On August 07, 2020 he was released after 18 months of preventive detention. They ask for 25 years in prison.
The Football Leaks whistleblower, Rui Pinto, was released this August 07, 2020 friday by the Portuguese justice. In house arrest since last April, he will now await the trial in freedom, as reported by his lawyer William Bourdon on Twitter.
Pinto denies the accusations. In an interview last December from prison, he denounced that “this case will end up in the European Court of Human Rights, because Portugal does not give a damn about the protection of whistleblowers.”
And now ask me … And what happened to the fraudsters?…
