This Thursday, at Chester court, Benjamin Mendy’s lawyer conducted a cross-examination against the fourth complainant whose testimony was broadcast on Wednesday. The footballer and Louis S. Matturie are charged with eight rapes, one attempted rape and sexual assault.
As RMC reports, Eleanor Laws, Mendy’s lawyer, questioned the complainant about the sequences following the alleged rape, in particular by returning to CCTV images where Mendy and the alleged victim are seen together in a nightclub. The complainant also explains their relationship since the alleged rape, following text messages allegedly exchanged with Mendy. “They acted normal with me, and I acted normal with them. I never put myself in such a situation again. Every time they asked me to pass [chez eux], I did not go there. »
Laws then referred to a Google search, issued by the complainant in January: “How much is Benjamin Mendy worth? » The lawyer claims that the next day, the alleged victim would have started writing on his phone a fictionalized account of his adventure with Benjamin Mendy. A version of the facts that the complainant does not remember, who also denies having considered obtaining financial compensation.
