According to the prosecution, this man in his twenties could be the fifth man sought by investigators from the Banditry Repression Brigade (BRB), as mentioned in a recent investigation report consulted by AFP.
Arrested Monday afternoon in Villeneuve-Saint-Georges (Val-de-Marne), he did not acknowledge the facts while in police custody and did not mention the possible role of sponsor of Aminata Diallo in the aggression of his teammate, according to a source familiar with the matter.
The prosecution requested that he be remanded in custody.
In this case, the player Aminata Diallo was indicted on September 16 for “aggravated violence” and “criminal association” and placed under judicial control. She had to pay a deposit of 30,000 euros.
His judicial review also requires him to reside with his father in Grenoble, his birthplace, with weekly check-in at the police station and a ban on contact with players and the PSG club.
Considered by investigators as the instigator of the violence against her former teammate, she denies any involvement in this case. His former club, Paris Saint-Germain, is a civil party.
In addition to Aminata Diallo, last week, four men born between 1999 and 2003 were indicted for “criminal association” and “aggravated violence”. Two were imprisoned, the other two placed under judicial control.
During their police custody, they implicated Aminata Diallo, presenting the ex-PSG player as “the sponsor of the violence, to allow him to occupy the position of the victim during future competitions”, according to the parquet floor of Versailles.
One of these four men admitted having kicked, the other three said they had been present at the scene of the attack.
On November 4, 2021, in Chatou (Yvelines), Kheira Hamraoui was attacked with iron bars and beaten in the legs by two men, in front of Aminata Diallo, while the two players were returning together by car from a team dinner. .
In the wake of the attack, Aminata Diallo was placed in police custody for the first time before being released without prosecution.
The judicial information, opened in the wake of the attack, was expanded for “organized gang scam” in March. No indictment has yet been linked to this part of the investigation.
