Court accepts Benzema's appeal for case to be re-examined

IANS  |  Paris 

A French on Tuesday accepted an appeal of Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema against the legal process that saw him indicted of conspiracy to blackmail, relating to an extortion scam over a sex tape involving France teammate Valbuena.

The decision means the case is set be re-examined, which could take six months, the French player's lawyer Sylvain Cormier said, reports Efe.

His lawyers questioned the involvement in the investigation of a police officer, who posed as a mediator.
