The story of Mendy’s insistence and then the assault

The complainant states that Mendy again asked her to undress and then threw the phone on the bed. It was then that the player, according to her, threw her on the bed. She says she found herself “on all fours” (she reproduces the position after asking the interrogator if it was useful). “I really don’t want to sleep with you, I have to go,” she said repeatedly to Mendy, adding that Mendy was “pulling her butt towards him.”

Door locked with Mendy’s fingerprints, complainant says

The complainant says she followed Mendy at the time in an attempt to retrieve her phone. She clarifies, as reported by the Manchester Evening News, that Mendy used her fingerprints to unlock the bedroom and enter it, before the door closed behind them.

“I want my phone, I don’t want to sleep with you, I just want to leave,” she said, telling Mendy, who reportedly replied, “the door is locked anyway.” The player would then have asked him to undress, declaring: “I just want to look at you, I promise I won’t touch you”. The complainant says she again asked to leave. “I just want to watch you. You can’t leave anyway.”

The story of a first complainant

While waiting for the next testimonies from the plaintiffs, the court was able to view the video recording of the story made by a first alleged victim of Benjamin Mendy.

She notably revealed a sentence that the French would have slipped to her during a joint evening in October 2018. “When he will not look, I will kidnap you.” A sentence that she then took as a joke.

The key figures in the Mendy trial

The general public discovered the face of one of Benjamin Mendy’s alleged victims even in the early days of the trial. However, the 12 other plaintiffs have not yet spoken and remain anonymous, known only to justice.

Instead, several people already occupy a key position in this case, such as the prosecutor in charge of the prosecution and the two lawyers for Benjamin Mendy and Louis Saha Matturie.

Louis Saha does not want to be confused with Louis Saha Matturie

In France, the passage of Benjamin Mendy in front of justice arouses a lot of curiosity and questions. But the footballer is not the only accused in this sad case.

Along with him, his friend Louis Saha Matturie is also being prosecuted. But beware, the co-defendant in the Mendy trial is not related to former Manchester United French footballer Louis Saha.
