Jerome Boateng (34) wears a suit with a tie and gold glasses as he is accompanied by his bodyguards and lawyers on day two of the court appeals process appears. The ex-footballer accused of assault appears calm and relaxed, similar to the first day of the trial . He again rejects the offer of an agreement with the plaintiff, which the judge repeatedly makes to him at the beginning.

Judge: 'If it's supposed to be, we'll take the time'

At the beginning of the hearing, the court suggested that the parties largely withdraw the appeal and only negotiate the sentence. Boateng rejected this proposal.

Two days of negotiations were originally scheduled for the new process. The verdict should actually fall this Friday. However, because Boateng's defense has requested that all files from the family law proceedings be included in the current process and that the joint plaintiff may also be questioned again, there are great doubts that the process can really come to an end after two days. 'We have a lot of time. If that's the case, we'll take our time,' said judge Andreas Forstner, who would have liked to have spared himself and all those involved what he calls 'an extensive and unpleasant process.'

 Boateng process: tough allegations from his ex

That is how the appeal process came about

Accompanied by a great deal of media hype, the new trial against long-time national soccer player Jérôme Boateng before the Munich I Regional Court began on October 20th. Last year, the district court sentenced him to a fine of 1.8 million euros for bodily harm. At the time, the judge saw it as proven that the longtime international, who is now under contract with Olympique Lyon, hit his ex-girlfriend on a vacation together in 2018. Because Boateng, who denies the allegations, the public prosecutor's office and the co-plaintiff have appealed, the new hearing is now taking place. (jra/abl/dpa)
