Ok so that was quite a long read.
I've only read through the most recent report from 2018, and it took me well over an hour. I have to read through the one from 2017 as well.
Though I assume most people won't read through most of this, or even a fraction of it, like the person earlier in this topic who claimed "from what I read she said yes", when it states she said the exact opposite. Even according to Ronaldo himself, allegedly. Laziness coupled with poor reading comprehension is not a good combination for forming strong opinions on very serious matters. So here are a few key takeaways from the article.
- A rape kit was administered on the victim by a hospital shortly after the incident, and a police report was filed.
- She had rectum lacerations due to Ronaldo allegedly raping her anally.
- Statute of limitations never expire in cases like these when a test was administered right away, and a police file was reported.
- Der Spiegel is the biggest weekly magazine in Germany, and supposedly in all of Europe.
- In spite of Ronaldo's legal team claiming that their report is false and illegal, they have not taken any legal action against Der Spiegel for the past c.a. 1,5 years since the original report.
That last point suggests to me that Der Spiegel and her lawyer are probably indeed in possession of the signed legal documents/evidence they claim to have.
I'll follow up on this as I read the report from 2017, and more statements from her lawyer, but it looks like this case is going to develop over the coming weeks/months.
