Brazilian football star in court to counter alleged drug-gang ties -

Brazilian football star in court to counter alleged drug-gang ties - "Red Command is the oldest and one of the most powerful gangs in Rio de Janeiro, dominant in the slum neighborhoods known as favelas, according to authorities.
Adriano grew up the Vila Cruzeiro favela, which is ruled by the Red Command, police said.
During Wednesday's hearing, the prosecution asked law-enforcement authorities to allow access to Adriano's phone and banking records, the prosecutor's office said.
Adriano was also questioned over a bank transaction that involved R$ 60,000 (US$33,000) in December of 2009 and whether that money was handed over to da Silva, the office said.
Adriano has denied all accusations, according to reports from the courtroom. Adriano's attorney, Ary Bergher, told Brazil's TV Globo that Adriano denies ever handing money to drug dealers.
'He has never delivered any money to any drug-trafficker,' said Bergher.
According to a United Nations report, Rio's drug gangs have become a growing challenge to public security, as Rio's airport serves as an important shipping point for the cocaine drug trade. Rio's drug gangs are using military expertise and weaponry to target civil police, the report said.
Last year, two policemen died in Rio after their helicopter was shot down during a shootout between drug gangs."
