PSG player Aminata Diallo is released from police custody without charge, but investigation into attack is ongoing

The investigation is still ongoing, the Versailles prosecutor’s office told CNN.

“The material in the possession of the investigators justified her being taken into custody,” Versailles prosecutor Maryvonne Caillibotte told CNN in an emailed statement.

“Her release means that at this stage the charges are not enough to bring her before an investigating judge and subject her to a formal investigation.

“However, the investigation is ongoing to identify the attackers and their possible accomplices. If new items are available that concern Ms. Diallo, she may need to be re-prosecuted,” Caillibotte added.

Detention as part of an investigation is common in France and prosecutors have 48 hours to charge or release a person if they are taken away. No one has been charged in the case.

Aminata Diallo has been released without charge.

Incident details

According to the New York Times, Diallo was driving PSG midfielder Kheira Hamraoui home when two masked men stopped the car and pulled Hamraoui out of the vehicle.

She was reportedly beaten on the legs with metal bars while Diallo was being held. Hamraoui was severely bruised but without broken bones in her legs, the New York Times reported.

Neither player has made public statements and CNN has not been able to reach any of their representatives for comment.

“Paris Saint-Germain condemns in the strongest possible terms the violence committed,” the club said in a statement earlier this week.

“The Club continues to support its players so that they can overcome this ordeal as soon as possible,” the statement read.

“Paris Saint-Germain reiterates its confidence in justice to shed light on the facts. The Club would like to thank everyone for showing restraint and respecting the presumption of innocence, as well as the privacy of the team.”

The club said it has taken all necessary measures to ensure the health and safety of its entire team.

“Paris Saint-Germain is working with the Versailles Police to clarify the facts. The Club is paying close attention to the progress of the proceedings and will study what measures to take.”

Diallo started for PSG in their 4-0 win over Real Madrid in the UEFA Women’s Champions League on Tuesday.
