The woman who accused international footballer, Neymar, of raping her in Paris Hotel in May, has been charged by Police in Brazil.

She Najila Trindade and her former husband, Estivens Alves, have been accused of lying to police and attempting to blackmail the player.

So far, the Paris St-Germain player has been cleared of any wrongdoing but Ms Trindade’s lawyer said the indictment had taken him by surprise.

Cosme Araújo rejected the police accusations and said his client had never colluded with Mr Alves to extort money from the Brazilian football star.

The case which dominated newspaper headlines in Brazil and abroad for several weeks, was later discovered to have some sexual consent.

A proof was revealed in June , when the Paris St-Germain star released a seven video on Instagram revealing that he had been accused of rape.

He also published Whatsapp messages and images that he claimed to be of the woman.

For clarification, concerning the video, he says he had to make them public to “prove that nothing really happened”.

Going memory lane, he stated that they met online, he paid for her trip to France and they had consensual sex before Ms Trindade returned to Brazil and went to a police station to accuse him of attacking her.

Ms Trindade then went public, giving a television interview and releasing footage and a video clip purportedly showing an altercation between the two.

Reports from a reliable source states that, the Police later filed a defamation suit against Ms Trindade, who allegedly insinuated the force was corrupt.

Neymar denied the allegations from the beginning and said he was being extorted.

Police closed the case at the end of July.

The São Paulo attorney general’s office said the case was suspended due to a lack of evidence.
