Police in the Brazilian state of Sao Paulo have indicted the woman who accused Neymar of rape, charging her with fraud, extortion, and slander.
The PSG and Brazil forward was accused of raping Najila Trindade in a Paris hotel room in May, but he alleged the encounter was consensual and prosecutors said in August they were dropping the case against him because of a lack of evidence.
Sao Paulo state police also said in a statement on Tuesday they were indicting Trindade’s former husband, Estivens Alves, on fraud charges. The BBC reported Trindade’s lawyer as saying the indictment had taken him by surprise and that his client rejected the accusations.
The former Barcelona and Santos forward has always denied the accusations against him and released private chats and lurid photos he said he had exchanged with Trindade.
