Corinthians fans involved in 14-year-old's death identified in football unrest
Two Corinthians supporters were engaged in football violence after being recently released from jail for their involvement in the death of a 14-year-old boy in Bolivia.
The duo were detained in Bolivia for five months after the death of a 14-year-old boy during a Copa Libertadores match and have now been involved in fan violence over the weekend in Brazil.
Estado de São Paulo showed pictures of the men involved in a fight between supporters of Corinthians and Vasco da Gama during a match on Sunday in Brasilia, prompting local authorities to sanction the supporters group.
The public safety department in the federal district announced Wednesday that it had banned the Gavioes da Fiel fan group from the Brasilia stadium for the next two years.
The Independente group, linked to Corinthians' rival club São Paulo, were also banned after violence at the stadium a week ago.
The two men involved in the weekend violence had been among the 12 supporters who were detained in Bolivia after a flare allegedly thrown by Corinthians fans killed Kevin Beltran Espada in February.
The men were released after Bolivian authorities decided there was not enough evidence to convict them.
