Lawyers’ Statement: “In relation to the matter under investigation, the accusation of rape that has been made against Cristiano Ronaldo is totally and categorically repudiated. As the investigations will demonstrate, these charges are not based on any credible facts and are clearly the product of the imagination and fantasy of the young lady, in an attempt to profit by dropping the charges in exchange for a considerable sum.
Symptomatic of the above is the fact that the young ladies involved only brought charges after their attempts to sell their story to British newspapers failed. Equally relevant is the fact that these charges were initially made by two young ladies, one of whom has already dropped charges, for no compensation whatsoever, due to the blatantly obvious lack of grounds.”
UPDATE: A witness has come forward “to assert that the girl who claims that Cristiano Ronaldo raped her – was laughing and flirting with him on the night of the alleged attack.” Witness: “The situation seemed clear – the girls wanted to sleep with him – not him with them.”
