Spiegel Rui Pinto, the face of Football Leaks, has spent the last nine months in prison. For the first time, he is now speaking out about the 147 charges against him and his time spent in pre-trial detention.
The prison where the football industry's toughest prosecutor is currently being held is located in Lisbon's city center. A path between gray multistory buildings ends in front of the high wall of the law enforcement facility, which is topped with spiral barbed wire. Silence dominates here on this Monday morning, broken only by announcements from the guards over the loudspeakers.
