Neymar accuser charged with fraud


The woman, Naijila Trindade, who accused Brazil superstar Neymar of rape has been charged with fraud.

The former Brazil captain was accused of raping Ms Trindade in a Paris hotel room in May, which he strongly denied and took to social media to clear his name.
Prosecutors in his native country dropped the case against him at the end of July due to a lack of evidence.
Now Sao Paulo police announced on Tuesday that charges had been brought against Trindade and her former partner Estivens Alves, as per Goal.
"Based on the evidence gathered during the investigations, the delegate decided for the indictment of N. and Estivens Alves, her former partner, for procedural fraud (art. 347).
"She [the delegate] also decided to indict Alves for disclosing material with erotic content from N. to a reporter.
"After clarifying the criminal materiality, the authority also decided for the indictment of N. in the crimes of slanderous denunciation and extortion."
The case with the Paris-Saint Germain footballer dominated headlines worldwide for several weeks, which put his international career in doubt and caused several sponsorship headaches.
