Aloisio, full name Jose da Silva Aloisio, was taken in for questioning when he returned from Brazil where he has been recovering from an injury since September.
Brazilian Alex and Ukraine goalkeeper Maxim Levitsky are already under official investigation and Aloisio is also suspected of using a false Portuguese passport.
St Etienne were docked seven points by the league and both players were banned for two months, with two months suspended while general manager Gerard Soler was suspended for a year.
Monaco and Metz are also under investigation for similar incidents concerning Chilean defender Pablo Contreras and Columbian goalkeeper Faryd Mondragon (Pictured).
St Etienne are set to appeal against the decision but this latest investigation could lead to them getting even more sanctions from the league.
