Assault on PSG player Kheira Hamraoui: three men in police custody

The case shook the capital’s flagship football club last fall. Three men in their twenties were arrested this Wednesday, September 14 in the morning in the Paris region and then placed in police custody in the investigation into the attack in November of PSG midfielder Kheira Hamraoui, who upset its 2021-2022 season. These men were arrested “at their home” then placed in police custody in the premises of the Versailles judicial police, said the prosecution, confirming information from the Sunday newspaper. “At least one of them has a criminal record”the prosecution told AFP.

According to a source familiar with the matter, all three are suspected of having participated in the attack on Kheira Hamraoui in November 2021 in Chatou in the Yvelines. One of them was arrested in Yerres in Essonne, while the other two were arrested in Villeneuve-Saint-Georges, in Val-de-Marne. These police custody are part of the judicial investigation opened on November 15 in Versailles against X for ” conspiracy “ and “aggravated violence”. Contacted, Kheira Hamraoui’s entourage and his lawyer did not wish to comment.

Assaulted with iron bars

On November 4, 2021, Kheira Hamraoui was attacked with iron bars by two men, in front of one of her teammates, Aminata Diallo, as they returned from a team dinner. The hypothesis of a rivalry between the two Paris Saint-Germain players, who play in the same midfield position, was initially considered. Aminata Diallo and one of her friends, imprisoned in Lyon, had been placed in police custody by the judicial police of Versailles before coming out free, without charge. Aminata Diallo has always strongly contested being involved.

Kheira Hamraoui, 32, had a trying 2021-2022 season in the wake of this attack “incredibly violent” in his own words at the sports daily I‘Crew. “I experienced a real ambush. These individuals were waiting for me behind a truck. They were in the right place at the right time. How could they be so well informed? These are so many unanswered questions even today., she said last June. After the outbreak of the affair, his relations deteriorated with part of the locker room, and in particular with the attackers Marie-Antoinette Katoto and Kadidiatou Diani.

Liaison with Eric Abidal

Under contract until June 2023, Hamraoui has been kept out of the professional group since the start of the current season. The deputy sports director of the women’s PSG, Sabrina Delannoy, admitted Friday at the microphone of Canal + to have “made a decision concerning Kheira Hamraoui” : “Hamraoui is not part of PSG’s sports projects and it will remain like that for the whole season”. Despite the interest of several clubs, the former Barcelona “wants to honor the last year of her contract: she will remain Parisian this season”had for his part insisted his entourage to AFP.

His aggression and the dissensions within the Parisian locker room also fueled social networks. Especially when the name of Éric Abidal appeared in the procedure: Kheira Hamraoui used a chip in the name of the footballer on his mobile phone. The former French international was heard in December, as a simple witness. His wife’s claims about his relationship with Kheira Hamraoui caused a stir, with Hayet Abidal filing for divorce. In February, Kheira Hamraoui filed a complaint in Paris for “defamation, public insult, threats and invasion of privacy”against an influencer and a freelance journalist.
