Finally Barreto gets back his Passport and flies off to Brazil!

Mohun Bagan ace Jose Ramirez Barreto finally got back his passport after getting in trouble with Forex. The month long tussle between Barreto and the Forex Dept. which had detained his passport, finally came to an end two days back when the High Court order for the return of Barreto's passport and gave the green signal for leaving the country. But his passport was being withheld even after the order. Tomorrow however, Barreto filed another suit on the ground of "non-compliance of court order amounting to contempt" of court against the respective authority resulting in a hasty return of his passport today morning itself.
After getting back his passport, he had a long talk with Debashish Dutta and later flew off to Brazil to his family. Barreto has not informed when he will return and his presence in the Bagan - Bayern match is a remote possibility.
Along with Barreto, Bhaichung also will not feature in the match along with other Bagan players attending the National Camp as the Federation is against releasing players for the occasion.
