The custody of PSG player Aminata Diallo, heard by the police after the assault on her teammate Kheira Hamraoui, was lifted late Thursday afternoon. The midfielder’s friend has also been released.
She had been questioned for 24 hours. The custody of Paris Saint-Germain player Aminata Diallo, heard by the police after the assault on her teammate Kheira Hamraoui, was lifted Thursday, November 11 at the end of the afternoon, the Versailles prosecutor announced to AFP, as well as that of a friend of the French international, imprisoned in Lyon and who had been heard in this case.
Two days before their duel at the top against Olympique Lyonnais in women’s D1, PSG is in shock: the club has decided to cancel the media activities planned for Friday. The training will take place behind closed doors in Bougival, the training center of the Parisiennes. While the press conference initially planned with the coach and a player will not take place, for fear that all the questions relate only to the Hamraoui-Diallo affair.
Aminata Diallo did not speak
Kheira Hamraoui was the victim, on the evening of November 4, of a violent ambush. The French international was driving home with Aminata Diallo from a dinner organized by their club, with Diallo at the wheel. Their vehicle was stopped and Hamraoui was taken out of the car to be “beaten on the legs with an iron bar” by two men who then fled, explained, Wednesday, Maryvonne Caillibotte, the prosecutor of Versailles. .
The player was then taken to hospital to receive stitches. Kheira Hamraoui did not spend the night in the hospital on the evening of the assault and resumed physical activity, since she was able to “do cardio on a bicycle” on Sunday. The investigation, triggered by a complaint filed last Friday, was opened for willful violence with a total interruption of work (ITT) of less than eight days, in a meeting, with a weapon and with premeditation.
Aminata Diallo, trained in Lyon after growing up in Grenoble, did not speak during his custody, said the prosecutor of Versailles on Wednesday.
Inseparable on social networks
The group of Paris SG was “very surprised” by this story because the two players were “friends: they spend their holidays together”. On their respective accounts on social networks, the two players are indeed often found together in the photos.
The story is followed by all the world press, told for example by the Catalan daily Vanguardia. It is also mentioned in the North American press, including the prestigious New York Times, which recalls the Harding-Kerrigan affair that shook the world of figure skating before the 1994 Winter Olympics.
Nancy Kerrigan, silver medalist at the Olympics, had been assaulted a few weeks earlier at the iron bar, in one leg, during an ambush orchestrated by the entourage of Tonya Harding, one of her rivals on ice.
This case did not prevent PSG from crushing Real Madrid (4-0) in the Champions League on Tuesday, without Hamraoui, irremovable holder since his return to the capital where she had already played from 2016 to 2018.
Officially unavailable for “a personal concern”, the 31-year-old player, recognizable by her long blond and curly hair, had left, against Real, her place on the field to Diallo, her usual club liner, who played the match almost entirely.
