0

Maria Silva, a 53-year-old travel agent who duped Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo of £250,000 has been sentenced to a four-year suspended prison sentence at a court in Porto on Monday.

Maria was also said to have duped the football star’s super-agent Jorge Mendes of over £14,000 and former Man U winger Nani of around £1,500 among others.

The Sun quoted local report in Portugal that the dubious travel agent made a verbal confession to the crime after Ronaldo reported the matter at Portugal and met his lawyer, Carlos Osorio de Castro on the matter.





Ronaldo was said to have given Maria whom he trusts as a travel agent his credit card details and pin codes after which she betrayed the players trust.

She reportedly carried out the fraud by getting clients to transfer cash for travel she arranged for them to her personal account instead of the business account of the travel agency she worked for.

Maria then billed those trips to the accounts of victims like Cristiano Ronaldo, who had given her a “virtual” credit card and pin code, to “fill the hole” in her company’s accounts.

She used the same tactic to rip off the likes of Jorge Mendes, Nani, Manuel Fernandes among others.



The travel agent managed to avoid going to prison after repaying some of her victims and agreeing to pay back monthly compensation to her old employers.

Free The Innocent People And Deal With Serious Problems’ – Ayisha Modi Joins #FreeShattaWale

Popular Ghanaian music promoter and member of Stonebwoy’s Bhim Nation movement Ayisha Modi has also added her voice to the trending #FreeShattawale and #FreeMedikal social media protest.

In an Instagram post she wrote the following,

This hypocrisy should stop, we live in a country where people are murdered and the killers will be walking freely, how far with Ahmed sule killers?? Have we found kwaw kese manager fennec Okyere’s killer and that of JB Danquah??

They don’t even talk about it because of their corrupted minds. Nana Agradaa was duping people and sending thugs to Beat them but she wasn’t treated like this when arrested. Ghana leaders should rise and focus on serious issues that need instant judgments.

Even if what shatta wale did was wrong he is not supposed to be treated like a criminal. They should arrest Government officials who collect bribes and those ministers who use Tax payers money to build houses and travel their girlfriends to Dubai just to have a body surgery.

This is a shame and embarrassing, At first I wasn’t happy with Twene Jonas when he insult the leaders but I now support it. Let’s call a spade a spade. We should change our mindsets and stand for the truth Always.

New IGP Ayekoo for doing your work but if you are ready to work we have serious crimes committed and the culprits are walking freely get those people. Posted by Ayisha Modi

Shatta wale has done alot for Ghana we should praise him rather that painting a bad image of him. Free the innocent soul let him continue his music. Selective arrest boi

The fact that I dont like shatta wales character doesn’t mean hate him. We all know shatta is the type who likes joking, If I don’t like some of his actions that doesn’t mean he is my enemy. I wasn’t born and raised that way and this is not the first time I’ve been out to talk about issues like this even I defend my worst enemies when I see that they are not treated fairly. Don’t get me wrong I am not saying the IGP shouldn’t do his work but my problem is he shouldn’t be selective everyone should be treated equally.

How many times have they attended to serious cases when reported to them at their various stations, innocent people are being jailed and some serving life in prison because they don’t have money to defend themselves. If the government is really working all this crimes will stop.

We were In Ghana here when a pastor was caught live on camera with weed the issue vanished from the system but kwaw kese was jailed with same crime. Are we going to sit And watch this nonsense to continue?? People like Nana Agradaa who sit on national TV to dupe the country was not treated like a criminal when she was arrested so why are they treating shatta wale as a criminal ??

Ghana need a change!!!! This is my opinion!
