Cristiano Ronaldo rape claim case reopened

Kind of felt like this wasn't really a football story but it sounds like he is in big trouble.

Obviously the legal process needs to be followed and the me too campaign has given a lot of women belief that they can come forward against these powerful individuals just look at the stuff going on currently with Brett Kavanuagh in the states or the Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstien stuff from last year.

The magazine reporting the story actually reported it last year but the women involved refuse to comment on it but they're since found further information as part of the football leaks hack where I believe the servers of Ronaldo's agents company were hacked and the information provided to news outlets. Der Spiegel have spent a year going through the documents looking for stories and it would seem a lot of the confidential legal agreements around this case were stolen in the hack.

It's a strange one really as this is a huge story but not a lot of the main stream media are really reporting on it probably because it's not easy to report or discuss it at this point.

There's an article from Der Spiegel who are running the story if you google you will find it if what they're saying is true he's in deep deep doo doo and they're not a tabloid hack they're a fairly well respected investigative magazine.

They go through it in a lot of detail as they've been working on the story for a year now the article they posted is something like 9000 words long and they claim it's been checked and double checked prior to print.

Cristiano Ronaldo's lawyer says allegation of rape is 'a complete fabrication'

The lawyers have spoken and no surprise that it's been denied what is interesting is the suggestion that documents provided to Der Spiegel have been fabricated surely the original signature documents exist and could be provided in court to squash the allegation. Lawyers wouldn't say something like that in an official statement unless they were very confident it was true.
