Sao Paulo police have moved to indict Najila Trindade and her partner Estivens Alves over allegations of rape levelled at Brazilian football star Neymar back in May.
Police in Brazil closed the investigation into the rape allegations in late July, with Sao Paulo police investigator Juliana Lopes Bussacos saying in a press conference: “I did not see enough elements to indict.”
That was followed by prosecutors in Brazil also finding a lack of evidence and announcing their decision earlier this month to close the case against Neymar.
In Tuesday’s announcement, police said they indicted the accuser (N.) for procedural fraud, slanderous denunciation and extortion, while adding that Alves bas been indicted for “disclosing material with erotic content from N. to a reporter.”
“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),” a statement from Sao Paulo police reads.
“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.”
