Brazilian footballer Neymar faces fresh police questioning over claim he raped a model in Paris hotel room

Published

Brazilian footballer, Neymar, 26, will be questioned for the second time over claims he raped a model in a Paris Hotel room.

The Paris Saint-Germain star has reportedly agreed to fly into São Paulo in Brazil to meet with detectives over the alleged rape attack on 26-year-old model, Najila Trindade Mendes de Souza. 

Speaking to MailOnline, Dr. Juliana Lopes Bussacos, the officer in charge of the investigation, said: ‘He will be treated like any other citizen. He has the same rights as any other man.

‘I have interviewed many men in these situations and everyone is equal and they all have the right to tell their story and produce evidence to back it up.’

With detectives desperate to get to the bottom of what happened,  Dr. Juliana said she couldn’t enter into details of the rape accuser’s complaint due to confidentiality.

‘There are so many questions and answers that need clarification. He says he did not rape her and she has said she has evidence.

The former Barcelona striker is expected to give his statement in the next 48 hours, and then officers will decide if there is a case and if it is necessary to bring them together.

This comes after it was revealed that Neymar could be cleared of the rape accusation levied against him within days over lack of more evidence from his accuser.

The Brazilian model has been informed by her lawyer that she faces seeing her case against the Paris Saint-Germain star dropped except there is more evidence. She also faces losing the second lawyer to represent her after he said he could not carry on if his professional ‘trust’ in her was compromised.

Trindade’s attorney Danileo Garcia de Andrade said he still believed Ms. Trindade had a case, but he would step aside if there was a lack of evidence.

Mr. Daileo said he had given her a deadline to produce the video and photographs she claimed to have had which would help prove her allegations of rape against the Brazilian superstar. But if the evidence was not forthcoming, he said, he would drop the case next week.

Mr de Andrade told Brazil’s UOL Esporte: ‘If the police investigation of the supposed break-in where she lives shows there was no break-in, I am leaving the case.’

He added: ‘The attorney-client relationship is based always on trust. If there is no trust, then there is no reason to stay on’

Trindade claimed she was the victim of ‘aggression and rape’ by the Paris Saint-Germain player in a hotel room in the French capital on May 15. She said the encounter started out consensual but quickly turned violent, leaving her with bruises and scrapes to her legs and buttocks, with Neymar refusing to stop.

She told police her tablet containing a seven-minute video, messages and photos she alleged incriminated the footballer, was stolen in a burglary at her apartment. But the authorities said they found no major signs of a break-in and only Ms. Trindade’s fingerprints and those of her maid and friends around the flat.

Neymar has strongly denied raping her but admitted that what happened between them was consensual.

Ethiopian Airlines plane crash: ‘No survivors’ on flight with 157 people aboard

Published

All 157 people aboard an Ethiopian Airlines plane have been killed after it crashed minutes after take-off.

The state-owned carrier has confirmed there were no survivors from Flight ET 302, carrying 149 passengers from 33 countries and eight crew members.

The Boeing 737-8 MAX was on a regular scheduled flight to Nairobi in Kenya, when it came down shortly after taking off from the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa.

The airline said the plane had crashed near the town of Bishoftu, some 31 miles (50km) southeast of Addis Ababa.

The jet left the airport at 8.38am local time before losing contact with the control tower at 8:44am.

The plane “had an unstable vertical speed” after take-off, according to the flight tracking website Flightradar24.

Ethiopian Airlines says it believes 149 passengers and eight crew members were on board a plane that crashed six minutes after taking off from Ethiopia's capital, Addis Ababa, on a flight to Nairobi.

Kenya’s transport secretary James Macharia described the crash as a “regrettable incident”.

He said Kenyan authorities were trying to find out exactly what happened, but because the plane came down in Ethiopian airspace they had limited information.

Mr Macharia told reporters: “It is a very sensitive emotional matter.

“We are waiting for more information to come from Ethiopian Airlines.

“What we are doing ourselves is to provide as much support as possible to relatives and friends waiting to meet passengers.”

He said they would be taken to a hotel at Nairobi airport where an emergency centre had been set up to provide them with support and assistance.

Kenya's transport secretary James Macharia holds a presser on the Ethionian Airlines plane crash.

Among the relatives at Nairobi airport was Wendy Otieno, clutching her phone and weeping.

She said: “We’re just waiting for my mum. We’re just hoping she took a different flight or was delayed. She’s not picking up her phone.”

The aircraft is just a few months old, having taken its first flight at the end of October.

It is the same type as the Lion Air plane which crashed into the sea off Indonesia last year killing all 189 on board.

In the wake of that disaster, Boeing issued a warning to airlines using its 737 MAX planes after a sensor failure was identified as a potential cause of the crash.

Ethiopian Airlines said in a statement that it “deeply regrets the fatal accident”.

It added: “The group CEO who is at the accident scene right now regrets to confirm that there are no survivors.

“He expresses his profound sympathy and condolences to the families and loved ones of passengers and crew who lost their lives in this tragic accident.”

The airline, which changed its Twitter account cover photo to black following the disaster, has posted emergency numbers to call.

The Ethiopian prime minister’s office has also offered condolences to families.

Boeing said it was “deeply saddened” at the tragedy.

It said in a statement: “We extend our heartfelt sympathies to the families and loved ones of the passengers and crew on board and stand ready to support the Ethiopian Airlines team.

“A Boeing technical team is prepared to provide technical assistance at the request and under the direction of the US National Transportation Safety Board.”
