According to Le Monde, Former Barcelona director of football Eric Abidal, is set to be questioned by the Versailles Juducial Police, in connection to the attack on Paris Saint Germain and French midfielder Kheira Hamraoui on the 4th of November 2021.
The Police have established that the phone sim card on Hamraoui’s phone had been registered under Abidal’s name, which appears to confirm that the two had a close relationship. The Versailles public prosecutor has confirmed that the former full-back will be questioned “soon”, while the possibility of his wife Hayet Abidal being also questioned is “not to be excluded”.
Hamraoui, 31, returned to PSG this summer. She is rumoured to be in a complicated relationship with Eric Abidal, and has been receiving some weird calls lately before the incident.
According to RMC Sport, the attackers of Kheira Hamraoui during the attack said; “So like that, you sleep with married men?”
Hamraoui’s teammate Aminata, was arrested and questioned by the police on Wednesday morning, 10th of November, on allegations of attempting to physically injure Kheira Hamraoui, in a bid to eliminate her in competition for places, by having two masked men drag Hamraoui out of her car to punch and hit her legs.
She spent about 36 hours in police custody but was later released, without any charges. In France, detention is not uncommon in police investigations. But in most cases, prosecutors must charge suspects or have them released within 48 hours.
