World Cup victor Jenni Hermoso Informs the Judge She Received a Hard Kiss

The aforementioned occurrence occurred on August 20, 2023, following Spain’s 1-0 victory over England in the Women’s World Cup final in Sydney. Rubiales, the president of the Spanish FA at the time, cradled Hermoso’s head and gave her a kiss on the lips.

Following the opening of an inquiry by the prosecution, he was prohibited from approaching Jenni Hermoso within 200 meters by Investigating Judge Francisco de Jorge last September.

Hermoso is reported to have told the judge that the kiss was “unexpected and at no time consensual” during her two and a half hour testimony earlier today.

She declared that she felt like a “victim of an assault” and that she did not want to be kissed. Keep in mind that a kiss without permission could be considered sexual assault in Spain.

However, Rubiales has consistently insisted that the kiss was a “consensual peck,” and as a result, he was compelled to step down from his position as head of the Spanish Football Federation.

After the court session, Jenni Hermoso told reporters, “All is in the hands of justice. That’s all I can say.”

For the purpose of determining whether to proceed with her criminal complaint alleging coercion and sexual assault against the former FA president, the court is going over documents, including feeds from security cameras.
