All you need to know about the rape case of Morocco and PSG defender Hakimi Achraf

PSG defender Achraf Hakimi is the subject of a rape charge, denounced by a young woman. Here’s what she told investigators.

Face closed, Achraf Hakimi did not really have the head to celebrate his nomination in the FIFA FIFPRO Best Eleven.

On Monday evening, if the Paris Saint-Germain defender was elected among the best footballers of recent months, his mind was elsewhere.

A few minutes before going on stage at the Salle Pleyel in Paris to receive his trophy, the Moroccan international was accused of rape by a young woman, as revealed by Le Parisien. A questioning which was not followed by a complaint, but simply by a handrail.

The statements of the alleged victim would however be sufficiently substantiated to characterize what is written into the law as a crime. Thus, justice has self-seized the case after recording the statements of the complainant.

Solicited by the newspaper and other media, Achraf Hakimi – no more than his entourage – did not comment. PSG did not comment further on this case.

What do we know about the rape charges against Achraf Hakimi?

According to the information obtained by the Ile-de-France newspaper, the facts took place on Saturday February 25, in Boulogne-Billancourt (Hauts-de-Seine). This is where the footballer lives, very close to the Parc des Princes.

After a discussion started on Instagram on January 16 and which had lasted for several weeks, Achraf Hakimi would have ordered a VTC for the young woman to go to his home.

But things would have turned out badly, she explained. The 24-year-old allegedly forcefully kissed her mouth and breasts, lifting her clothes off. He would have, still according to his words relayed by Le Parisien, carried out a digital penetration without her consent.

She would have finally managed to push him away before leaving the scene.

Where is the investigation?

No complaint has been filed against Achraf Hakimi. The young woman who incriminates the footballer and testified on February 26 at the Nogent-sur-Marne police station (Val-de-Marne) did not wish to initiate proceedings, contenting herself with a “declaration of rape”.

Justice, however, took the case on its own in view of the story of the alleged victim. The file, opened by the parquet floor of Créteil (Val-de-Marne), is now in the hands of that of Nanterre.

The latter “does not wish to communicate on this investigation, the information already published jeopardizing the investigations necessary for the manifestation of the truth”.

The young woman has not yet been heard by the investigators. Moreover, in the context of a simple “declaration”, the defendant does not have to be summoned to the police station.

Who is the alleged victim?

Le Parisien argues that the alleged victim is 24 years old and lives in Fontenay-sous-Bois (Val-de-Marne). She would have come into contact with Achraf Hakimi on January 16, via the social network Instagram. Since then, the two exchanged.

Who started the discussion first?

Had they met before? The survey should shed light on these various points. What is a “report of rape”? Achraf Hakimi is not, at this stage, the subject of a complaint, according to the details of the Parisian.

The statements of the alleged victim collected at the police station were therefore collected as part of a daybook.

“Its purpose is not to prosecute the perpetrator, but to report the nature and date of the facts to the police. This can be useful in the context of a future trial”, explains the Ministry of Justice. This will therefore not lead to a summons of the player. Furthermore, the latter will not be aware of the contents of the daybook.

Achraf Hakimi married with two children

This accusation against Achraf Hakimi arises at the end of a new weekend where the footballer remained away from the field. Injured since the round of 16 first leg of the Champions League against Bayern Munich on February 14, he was not traveling to Marseille on Sunday evening to follow the Classico. Above all, the defender was alone throughout the weekend at his home, where he resides with his partner and his two children.

Who is Hiba Habouk, wife of Achraf Hakimi?

Accused of rape, the Moroccan footballer is married to Hiba Habouk, who is she? Indeed, as she posted on her Instagram account, Hiba Abouk, his wife, was in Dubai in recent days. The Moroccan’s companion, whose relationship dates back to 2018, had gone to the United Arab Emirates with their sons Amin (3 years old) and Naim (1 year old).
