Karim Benzema’s lawyers have issued a request for a confrontation hearing between the Real Madrid striker and Mathieu Valbuena in the sex-tape case involving the France international teammates.
Real Madrid striker Benzema, who has been charged with conspiracy to blackmail in relation to an extortion scam over a sex tape featuring Valbuena, has no right to meet him during the investigation after he was placed under judicial supervision.
The investigating judge has one month to consider the lawyers’ request.
French federation president Noel Le Graet is expected to address the case at a news conference on Thursday.
Benzema, who is alleged to have pressured Valbuena to deal with the blackmailers, denies any wrongdoing.
