Brazilian Police Ends Neymar Rape Claim Over Lack of Evidence
Police investigating a rape allegation against Paris Saint-Germain and Brazil striker Neymar have dropped the case because of a lack of evidence, it has been reported.
The São Paulo attorney general’s office said the case was suspended due to a lack of evidence, but will be sent to prosecutors for a final decision.
Brazilian model Najila Trindade has accused the 27-year-old striker of raping her in a Paris hotel in May. He denied the accusation and says their relations were consensual.
But according to the AFP news agency, police in Sao Paulo have decided to close the case.
Prosecutors now have 15 days to evaluate the case before a judge makes a final ruling.
