Cristiano Ronaldo’s lawyers has allegedly threatened his rape accuser, with “public exposure” and “humiliation” if she continued speaking to police who is investigating her claim. The court documents has revealed this.
So, it happened that Kathryn Mayorga had reported to the Police, that she was raped by Cristiano Ronaldo, at the Palms Hotel and Casino on 12 June 2009. She had also gone ahead to sue the Manchester United star.
The superstar striker had denied this so many times fiercely claiming he didn’t rape Mayorga.
However, the court documents say that lawyers representing Ronaldo warned her that if she continued to talk to the police they wouldn’t continue settlement and would publicly accuse her of extortion.
According to a court transcript released by The Sun, Leslie Mark Stovall, who is also Mayorga’s attorney, told the US District Court in September last year that Ronaldo’s lawyers had done their homework on Mayorga, and they knew she was “vulnerable to a very powerful individual, and she was frightened of publicity.”
Her lawyer, proofed his points with emails between Ronaldo’s lawyers.
the email states; ‘Well, if you continue to talk to Metro, we’re not going to continue settlement. We are going to publically (sic) accuse you of extortion, that you had consensual sex, and that you’re now trying to extort money from this famous, well-known person.’
Mayorga’s lawyer said she was terrified of that, and that continued to be repeated throughout their correspondence. There was a threat.”
Stovall said Mayorga “complied” and stopped talking with police, although she did cooperate in a later probe.
He said: “You can look at the investigative report from Metro, you will see she stopped speaking to them early on. Why?
“Because she was threatened with public exposure and humiliation by defendant’s attorneys. And it’s documented in those e-mails.”
He conclude by saying, Ronaldo’s lawyers succeeded in their strategy, resulting in a delay in the prosecution.
“When Metro reopened it in 2019,and then decided that they had a case and asked the DA to prosecute it, he deferred.”
He added: “I can’t think of a more clearer case of an obstruction of a crime by lawyers and a party.”
