Lawyer: Vegas police seek Ronaldo DNA in rape investigation

"Mr Ronaldo has always maintained, as he does today, that what occurred in 2009 in Las Vegas was consensual in nature", Peter S. Christiansen, a lawyer for the striker, said in October. Mayorga has said Ronaldo raped her in a hotel room in 2009.

She alleges the striker then paid her $375,000 to keep it a secret.

Mayorga has alleged that Ronaldo raped her at a Las Vegas hotel in June 2009 after they met at a nightclub, where she was working at as a model to entice guests into the establishment.

The officials have sent the warrant to authorities in Italy, according to The Wall Street Journal, which first reported the existence of the warrant.

Las Vegas police would not confirm the approach.

This strategic review will create a leaner, more resilient organisation with a flatter management structure", the company added. They said in response: It is, of course, bad news that Jaguar Land Rover is being forced to make further job cuts.


"The LVMPD is taking the same steps in this case as in any other sexual assault to facilitate the collection of DNA evidence", Officer Laura Meltzer said.

Previously, Legit.ng had reported how Portugal worldwide Cristiano Ronaldo was accused to have ordered American lady Kathryn Mayorga to sign secret document for her to remain silent over her claims. Once the warrant has made its way through the Italian court system, officials will then serve it and, if Ronaldo complies, collect the samples and send them back to United States officials. The lawsuit and the criminal police investigation are on separate legal tracks.

Las Vegas police reopened their investigation into the case shortly after Der Spiegel published its report.

The news comes several weeks after it was revealed that Ronaldo admitted Mayorga did not give him verbal consent numerous times during the incident. "We have been communicating pretty much on a daily basis for the previous year and half and I have messages and recordings that'll be invaluable to Kathryn and her team in showing his true nature and character how unwell he is". "Keen as I may be to clear my name, I refused to feed the media spectacle created by people seeking to promote themselves at my expense".
