Óscar Rentería, an old acquaintance in Colombian journalism, was fired from Caracol Radio, where he was listed as one of the two panelists on the program The pulse of soccer.
One of the reasons would have been his opinion on the complaint against Achraf Hakimi, the Moroccan defender of Paris Saint-Germain, although in the media they argued that he obeyed new decisions for the radio station, which includes the renewal of journalists, as they confirmed. to WEEK.
The announcement was made known at a company meeting and, of course, the possibility is being considered that Juan Felipe Cadavid can replace him in office and lead the program together with César Augusto Londoñothough the string would have to get you a replacement in the VBar.
On the air, the journalist stated that “a single woman should not go to a soccer player’s apartment”, a fact that generated strong criticism.
Likewise, he commented: “I still think that if that girl went to the player’s apartment alone, she knew what could happen. Why does he come to complain later? I don’t believe her film, maybe it’s true and I have to apologize, but I don’t believe it. That is my thought and I deeply respect anyone who thinks otherwise, but I do not share it.
As for Hakimi, A 24-year-old woman accused him of sexually abusing her in late February at her home in Boulogne-Billancourt, on the western outskirts of Paris, according to the daily Le Parisien. Likewise, it indicated that the soccer player appeared before the investigators of the Territorial Security of Hautes-de-Seine (Hauts-de-Seine).
“Hakimi will have police surveillance. The young woman went to a police station in the town of Nogent-sur-Marne to declare before the Police that she had been raped by the defender of the Parisian team, but that she did not want to file any complaint.specified the newspaper.
Óscar Rentería defended himself against the accusation in Sklaper
After the controversy generated by the comments of the renowned journalist, Sklaper interviewed him and maintained his position on Hakimi’s whistleblower.
WEEK: Óscar, do you support your statements in which you say that, in the case of Hakimi, a player accused of rape, the victim knew what could happen?
Óscar Rentería, sports journalist. (OR): I want to repeat them. It is that my opinion, my concept, deserves all the respect, like the other opinions. Like everything that has been said through social networks. I simply stated that day that, based on everything we know, because this is not new, any number of complaints have been filed, any number of situations, where some of the soccer players have been punished, some have not, for complaints of rape against different people and in many cities and countries around the world.
So, I simply stated that, as a result of all that is known, if a girl anywhere in the world, with all that is known, decides to visit a soccer player’s bachelor apartment, she should know what she is getting into. exposing, you must know what risk you may run. Suddenly nothing happens to her, suddenly they give her an engagement ring, suddenly she just drinks a bottle of wine and leaves and nothing happens. But also, from what we know, because of everything that is happening in the world of football, we know what can happen and that was the only thing I said, that she was aware of what could happen to her and, nevertheless, it was, and she says what happened to her.
WEEK: Under this logic, no woman could go to the house of a soccer player or a friend. Does that seem logical to you?
OR: I have friends, I have daughters, I have a wife. I don’t have a mom anymore, but it can still be at my house, it can be whatever. It’s his responsability. If you were an eleven-year-old girl, ten years old, although there are now very advantageous ones, I’m still worth it, but a full-fledged woman, of legal age, with everything that is published daily in the complaints that are known, Don’t tell me you don’t know what you’re going to be exposed to if you go to a football player’s or any man’s bachelor apartment. I simply tell her: go if she wants, go, go, but you know what risk you are running.
WEEK: Do you have friends? Because if, for example, you and I are friends and you invite me to your house, do I have to be predisposed to the fact that you are going to rape me?
OR: No no I dont know. You must know me well enough to know if you are going or not. If you know me and you know that I am a proper man and everything, then you say: ‘Óscar is going to propose to me, Óscar is going to invite me to eat, Óscar is going to want to spend some time with me. , chat, listen to good music and nothing else is going to happen’. But if you don’t know me, which is the case here with this girl with Hakimi, who denounced him, then it’s taking a risk, I’m not going to leave.
Look, why are they only attacking us for rape, if men are also raped daily by women who conspire. There are women who fall in love with a man, they go to sleep with him and then the woman’s supposed husband arrives and then, in order not to denounce the man who is sleeping with his wife, they ask him for an amount of money. Thousands of complaints on both sides rest on this in prosecutors around the world.
