It was a company of Shayene’s ex-partner, which indirectly affected her. It was a problem of business administration, and after a questionable search and seizure, the company was unable to deliver products to some consumers.
Antonio further talked that the financial amount claimed in the lawsuit is a gross overestimation. Shay CSGO lawyer said,
“We are appealing the sentence that was absurd, and the amount claimed by consumers does not reach $50,000. In the allegations and embargoes of declaration that we attached, there is a complaint by the accused, against arbitrary acts in the search and seizure that prove that the prosecution failed to return more than 5,000 notes proving the company’s fairness.”
Alongside Antonio’s statement, Shay CSGO addressed the situation on her Instagram. She wrote,
“I am not arrested, and I will not be arrested. It is a situation in which my ex-husband has a major role to play. He is taking 100% responsibility.”
According to Brazilian law, jail is not possible for more than 30 years for a single crime. Is Shay CSGO appeal fails, she’ll only face a sentence of thirty years.
