New suspect charged in Paul Pogba extortion case

According to a report from Le Journal du Dimanche tonight, another suspect has been charged and provisionally incarcerated in relation to the ongoing investigation into the allegations of blackmail and attempted extortion suffered by France international Paul Pogba.

The individual, named Adama Camara, is a childhood friend of the Juventus midfielder, and was arrested on touching down at Charles de Gaulle airport outside Paris, having come back from Dubai. Having been the target of an arrest warrant, he was soon taken to face the Paris public prosecutor in charge of the case.

The outlet adds that the suspect has been charged with “organised group extortion committed with a weapon”, “arrest”, “abduction, illegal confinement, or arbitrary detention committed by a group to facilitate a crime or offence followed by a liberation before the seventh day”, and “involvement in a criminal conspiracy with a view to committing a crime”.

Five other people, including Pogba’s older brother Mathias, have been charged in relation to the alleged events that took place in March of last year. Three of them are no longer in pre-trial detention, including Mathias and Boubacar Camara.
