PSG Defender Achraf Hakimi Charged With Rape. According to different sources, French authorities have prosecuted Paris Saint-Germain defender Achraf Hakimi with rape. Hakimi is accused of raping a 24-year-old woman who has not been identified. According to the AFP, she went to a police station on Sunday, February 26.
According to the report, Hakimi paid his accuser to go to his Paris residence last Saturday. His wife Hiba Abouk and their two kids were on vacation. Fanny Colin, the 24-year-old Moroccan international’s attorney, maintains that her client has accepted the accusation, stating: “he finally has the possibility to defend himself.”
“In my opinion, it follows from the documents which are in the hands of the judicial police that Mr. Hakimi has, in this case, been the subject of an attempted racketeering,” she added to the French paper, L’Equipe.
Hakimi trained with PSG on Friday even though he has a hamstring injury and the police have not taken him into custody. In a statement, the club said: “PSG is an institution that promotes respect on and off the pitch.”
PSG manager Christophe Galtier refused to answer any non-football questions about Hakimi during a press conference on that same day.
