On Monday, a judicial official said French prosecutors opened a preliminary investigation into a rape accusation against the Morocco international.
A judicial source told ESPN that a 23-year-old woman went to police over the weekend and said that Hakimi raped her. The woman didn’t want to press charges, but the prosecutor’s office still decided to open an investigation.
Hakimi has not been charged by the authorities.
Neither Hakimi and PSG have not made public statements regarding the investigation.
Hakimi’s lawyer, Fanni Colin, is in constant dialogue with the investigators and the player is willing to completely cooperate with the investigation, according to sources.
The 24-year-old attended the FIFA Best awards ceremony in Paris on Monday, where he was selected in the 2022 FIFPRO World XI.
