Ronaldo testifies

2008-09-27 14:05
Rio de Janeiro - Brazil star Ronaldo testified before a state judge on Friday on the case involving his encounter with three cross-dressing prostitutes this year.

Ronaldo, who has filed fraud charges against one of the prostitutes, testified for nearly five hours in a deposition session presided by Judge Marta Oliveira Cianni Marins, court spokesperson Leandro Neto said.

He said the session was held before closed doors and that Ronaldo's deposition would not be made public.

Ronaldo has acknowledged that in April he met with the three prostitutes but did not realize they were cross-dressers until getting to a motel, where allegedly one of them tried to extort money from him to hide the story from the media.

Outside the courtroom, the prostitute reiterated, in comments to the O Globo newspaper, that Ronaldo was drunk and high on drugs when they met.

In an interview with Globo TV last May, Ronaldo denied claims that he had sex with the prostitutes and used drugs.
