Developments in the case of Benjamin Mendy .. conditional release and a sentence that could reach life

The British judiciary released the French defender of Manchester City, Benjamin Mendy, accused of committing seven crimes of rape and sexual assault, and was placed under judicial supervision.

Today, Friday, the court issued a decision to release Mendy on bail, who has been in prison since last August, in preparation for his trial, which is not expected to be held before next summer.

At the end of Friday's hearing, the judge announced the release of the 27-year-old player. He will then be able to get out of prison but will be subject to "strict" conditions, and he will have to appear again in court on January 24. He was warned against issuing an arrest warrant against him and reversing the decision to release him if he did not appear at this hearing.

The player crowned with the France national team in the 2018 World Cup in Russia will be required to stay at his home and not contact the victims who have complaints about which he is being pursued.
