Court Summons Rubiales Over Hermoso Kiss

Court Summons Rubiales Over Hermoso Kiss

Former Spanish Football Federation president Luis Rubiales has been summoned by a high court judge over his kiss with Spain forward Jenni Hermoso.

He will appear before a magistrate in a Madrid court on Friday to respond to accusations of sexual assault and coercion.

It follows after a Spanish high court judge launched an investigation into Rubiales on Monday.

Hermoso filed a legal complaint last week over Rubiales kissing her on the lips following her country's Women's World Cup final win on August 20, dismissing Rubiales claims that the kiss was "mutual" and "consensual."

Her complaint was one of sexual assault before prosecutor Marta Durantez Gil added an allegation of coercion after the  33-year-old revealed that some of her relatives had been pressured by Rubiales to make her recant.

Judge Francisco de Jorge of the National Court accepted the complaint and assigned a magistrate to investigate the case.

The magistrate is saddled with the responsibility of making a recommendation for the case to go to trial or be dismissed.

Should Rubiales be found culpable, he could carry a punishment ranging from a fine to four years in prison.
