The Police of Las Vegas (the United States) has requested this Thursday a court order to obtain the DNA of the soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo, in order to contrast them with the biological remains found in the dress of Kathryn Mayorga, who accuses him of rape since 2009 .
According to Wall Street Journal, who cites officers close to the case, the US authorities would have required an Italian judge – the current country of residence of the Luso – to allow a sample of the athlete to be checked to see if it matches the one found on the complainant's clothes.
Once the magistrate allows the evidence to be collected, it will be sent to the Las Vegas police to check if it matches the one found on the plaintiff's dress.
According to the accusation version, the events occurred at the Palms Hotel and Las Vegas Casino on June 13, 2009. Ronaldo and several friends invited her and another group of women to go up to the attic they had reserved. At one point, when the footballer and Mayorga were alone, she refused to have sex and, according to his accusation, raped her. According to the complainant, the Juventus player paid $ 375,000 to keep the game a secret.
Ronaldo's defense has constantly denied the accusations of rape and, in the words of his lawyer, Peter Christiansen, what happened in Las Vegas was "by mutual agreement."
