Karim Benzema was sentenced to 10 months in prison, suspended


Benzema is one of five people on trial for an attempted extortion in 2015, which led to his exclusion from the national team for five and a half years.

The public prosecutor requested sentences ranging from 18 months suspended prison sentences to up to four years in prison for the other four convicts.

The star, returning to the “Rooster” team, which played on Tuesday evening in Ukraine with Real Madrid in the Champions League, was not present in Versailles on Wednesday and Thursday during the sessions.

Benzema is accused of inciting Valbuena to pay a sum of money to the blackmailers who threatened to reveal an intimate video of the latter.

“Benzema is not a good person who tried to help, he worked to allow the negotiators to reach their goal and the blackmailers to get the money,” prosecutor Segolene Mar told the court. She also asked for a fine of 75,000 euros.

The two players have been excluded from the “rooster” team since late 2015 before Benzema returned to the European Cup this summer, as the world champions were eliminated from the 16th round against Switzerland, before they achieved about ten days ago the European Nations League title at the expense of Spain in the final led by Benzema, while they did not Valbuena is summoned again.

“I was afraid for my sporting career, for the France national team,” Valbuena said in his testimony on the day the trial opened on Wednesday. “I knew that if the video material was published, it would be difficult for me in the national team and that’s what happened later.”
