JUSTICE – The older brother of Paul Pogba, Mathias Pogba, was indicted and imprisoned this Saturday, September 17 after being presented to an examining magistrate, as part of the investigation into the extortion of funds denounced by the star of the Blues, learned AFP from a source close to the investigation.

Mathias Pogba, 32, who went himself to the investigating service on Wednesday, admitted to being at the initiative of the video threatening Paul Pogba broadcast on August 27.

Four other suspects, relatives of the Pogba brothers aged 27 to 36, were also placed in police custody on Tuesday and Wednesday at the premises of the Central Office for the Fight against Organized Crime (Oclco).

This incredible affair, which is shaking the Blues and more broadly the world of football two months before the World Cup in Qatar, started with a complaint filed on July 16 with the prosecutor’s office in Turin, Italy, by the 2018 world champion. The Juventus player denounced in this complaint extortion attempts between March and July 2022 amounting to 13 million euros.
