The tables have turned for the Brazilian woman who accused football star Neymar of rape in May. She has been indicted by police in Sao Paulo and is being charged with fraud, extortion and slander in what comes as a major relief for the Brazilian striker.
Neymar was almost convicted last month but prosecutors dropped the case due to lack of evidence. Neymar who had expressed his desire to leave Paris Saint Germain to return to Barcelona was accused of raping Najila Trindade in a hotel room in Paris but had maintained that the encounter was consensual.
Sao Paulo state police has also said in a statement that Trindade’s former husband is also being indicted on fraud charges.
