Soccer fans have witnessed various players charged with crimes. Even the biggest superstars have been accused of crimes of the worst sort. It isn’t any different with PSG superstar Achraf Hakimi. The right-back enjoyed a stellar time at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, helping Morocco reach the semi-finals. He has been one of the key players for Christophe Galtier since moving to Paris in 2021.
A 23-year-old woman recently accused Hakimi of r*pe. Reports mention that she did not want to file charges against the player, but the prosecution decided to investigate the matter. As per sources, Hakimi invited the woman over in the absence of his wife, Hiba Abouk, and kids’ absence.
It looks like they were in Dubai at the time of the incident. It looks like this was when Hakimi allegedly assaulted the woman, which left her no choice but to force her way out.
Achraf Hakimi denies the allegations against him and is a victim of ‘racketeering,’ lawyer says
When these reports came to light, they caught the soccer world off guard. Fans were surprised to find out that yet another player has been accused of a serious crime.
At the same time, the news also sparked a huge debate among fans, who claimed he wasn’t guilty until the accusations have been proven. However, the case has taken yet another turn now, after new developments. It was revealed very recently that Hakimi is currently being charged with r*pe as the investigation continues.

Once again, fans have taken to social media to weigh in on the situation. Hakimi still hasn’t been proven guilty and his lawyer claims that the player denies the allegations.
He told L’Équipe, “I remind you that the indictment that followed this hearing is a must for anyone who is the subject of an accusation of r*pe and finally offers Mr. Hakimi the possibility of defending himself by opening up a large number of of rights.” He added, “Mr. Hakimi has, in this case, been the subject of an attempted racketeering.”
Fans have not backed down from sharing their opinions, as one even wrote, “That’s the end of his career.” If Hakimi is proven to be guilty and it turns out that he committed the crime, there is no doubt in saying that his career will be at stake.
That’s the end of his career

It looks like it could be another debate from what fans have tweeted. Some have expressed their dissatisfaction toward Hakimi and what he is being accused of, while others claim he has been framed and is innocent. Whatever the case, only time will tell how this plays out for the PSG star and the alleged victim.
