Neymar testifies over rape allegations

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 2,733

PSG forward Neymar appeared at a police station in Sao Paulo today to give a statement as part of an ongoing investigation into the footballer after he was accused of rape by a Brazilian model.

Neymar, 27, arrived at the police station at around 15:20 local time (18:20 GMT) on crutches after suffering an injury during Brazil's friendly against Qatar last week.

It is the first time that the forward has testified in Sao Paulo, where the police have opened an investigation into an alleged rape of 26 year-old model Najila Trindade Mendes de Souza that was committed by Neymar.

The Brazilian woman says that she travelled to Paris to engage in sexual relations with Neymar on 15th May but, whilst in the hotel, changed her mind at the last minute as they didn't have contraception, and it was then that the footballer reportedly raped her.

Neymar had already been interrogated last week in a police station in Rio de Janeiro for an alleged cyber crime, that may have been committed when he published the photos of the conversation that contained intimate photos of the model on social media.

With this post on Instagram, the PSG star wanted to show that the two had maintained normal contact after a sexual encounter that, according to him, was consensual.

Najila Trindade Mendes, for her part, was also questioned by authorities last week, and after a long five-hour statement, was carried out of the station by her ex-lawyer, who has since dropped the case.

Lawyer Danilo Garcia de Andrade said this Monday that his client had even accused him of having stolen the tablet which allegedly contained a video that, according to her, would incriminate Neymar.

"She was very emphatic and a client should not question a lawyer and even more so a lawyer who leaves a police station carrying her in his arms," said the lawyer -  the third to leave the defence of Trindade.

In the first minute of the video, which has been leaked to the press, the model can be seen hitting Neymar, who she accuses of assaulting her and leaving her alone in the hotel the night before.

In the other six minutes of the video, according to Trindade, there is proof that Neymar sexually assaulted her on 15th May in the French capital.
