FilGoal | News | Le Figaro: Benzemas trial next October … is threatened with 5 years imprisonment


A French report said that Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema will be tried before the Versailles court between 20 and 22 October.

Le Figaro newspaper stated that Benzema is threatened with 5 years imprisonment and a fine of 75,000 euros in the case of blackmailing his former teammate in the French national team Matthew Valbuena.

The case dates back to 2015, when the court accused Benzema of trying to blackmail his colleague with a sex tape.

According to the public prosecutor in France, it is suspected that Benzema instigated Valbuena to pay the blackmailers who threatened to reveal an intimate video of him, and the former admitted to interfering in the matter at the request of one of the extortionists.

The Public Prosecutor’s Office stated that four other men were accused of attempted extortion, and another was accused of breach of trust as well.
