It happens over and over again and it seems that they did not know, that they did not learn the lesson. Again there is talk of Colombian soccer players in legal problems and the story already seems to never end.
After the case of Andres ‘Manga’ Escobar in Finlandwhere a woman denounced him for alleged sexual abuse and is begging for legal assistance to return to the country, now a new case is reported from Argentina.
Johan Carbonero is news in that country and not precisely because of his work in Gimnasia y Esgrima de La Plata. The talented attacker was denounced by a hotel employee, who claimed to be a victim of sexual harassment by the athlete.
“We decided to do it when he locked her in the room. There were many horrible situations, but that was already a limit,” explained Fernando Jerez, the girl’s father, in statements to Radio Provincia, quoted by the newspaper La Nación.
The club itself took action on the matter and decided to set him aside while his situation is clarified: “As a result of the publicly known facts involving the player Carbonero Balantathe Gymnastics and Fencing Club La Plata informs its members and associates and the general public that, within the framework of the Institutional Action Protocol for the prevention and intervention in situations of violence and/or discrimination based on gender and/or sexual orientation, the Interdisciplinary Professional Team has already intervened, offering a listening and containment space to the young woman affected to learn first-hand about her situation,” the team said in a statement.
“Likewise, in accordance with the provisions of the aforementioned Protocol, work will be carried out in an integral manner, summoning the player to an interview, prior to preparing a report with the measures that are considered necessary to implement in this case,” he added.
According to La Nación, the soccer player could go to trial, after the request for Virginia Bravo, holder of the Functional Unit of Instruction 7 of La Plata before the Court of Guarantees 2 of La Plata, which has the player in the midst of uncertainty. A decision on his future is expected, while the bewilderment is total in his environment.
