Neymar has also denied being harassed Covid-19 the rules for hosting a party, which at its peak were said to have involved 150 people.

In a statement, local authorities said it was “not officially notified to the party and that events for 500 people should, at the very least, be notified to the city authorities.”
A source from the local government told CNN: “ There is no way to make laws on certain events but if Neymar has a party here (Mangaratiba), he severely undermines sanitation principles, prevailing decrees and city hall recommendations just hold small family party.
‘The residents are not satisfied with the party and its aftermath involving the name of the city. It was a disrespect for sanitation and made absolutely no sense. ‘
