Paris Saint-Germain defender Achraf Hakimi has been indicted on rape charges after French officials opened an investigation into the allegation just days earlier, according to multiple reports.
The 24-year-old footballer, who also plays for the Moroccan national team, was placed under judicial supervision on Friday after a 23-year-old woman came forward to police last week to accuse him of rape, ESPN reported, citing the prosecutor’s office in Nanterre.
Hakimi is also barred from having any contact with the alleged victim.
French prosecutors opened a preliminary investigation into the accusation on Monday. According to the report, the victim did not press charges, but prosecutors proceeded with the investigation because of her testimony.
