Prosecutors in France call for trial of Real Madrid attacker Karim Benzema for sexual blackmail


The Versailles prosecution has asked that Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema be tried for his part in an attempt to blackmail sexist.Benzema’s lawyer, Sylvain Cormier, confirmed the news in an interview with EFE, as reported by Marca, and concerns his alleged involvement in the blackmail of his former French international teammate Mathieu Valbuena.

It has been alleged that the Madrid star acted as an intermediary between a group of blackmailers and Valbuena, who appeared in a videotape of a sexual nature.

Benzema is said to have encouraged Valbuena to pay the demands of the blackmailers, which was refused, and the Madrid striker was subsequently banned from France’s international organization by the boss Didier Deschamps.

Benzema’s lawyer, Cormier, said, “It is not a surprise, the Attorney General was very involved in this case, so we expected him to ask to be tried, although the charges did not are not based on reality. ”

Former Liverpool striker Djibril Cisse was also involved in the investigation with Karim Zenati, a childhood friend of Benzema and three other people.

Cisse reportedly failed in his attempts to convince Valbuena, so the gang then moved to Benzema, using Zenati as a bond.

In December, the Supreme Court of France dismissed Benzema’s appeal that evidence against him had been illegally collected.
