Pippa Middleton & # 39; s father-in-law STILL is being investigated about rape of teenage girls

Pippa Middleton & father-in-law is still being investigated about the alleged rape of a teenage girl – more than 14 months after he was first arrested in Paris.

David Matthews, 75, was detained at Orly Airport in Paris in March of last year, detained for 48 hours, sued and charged with raping a minor in the 1990s.

The former driver is accused of taking care of and attacking the 15-year-old on a French Caribbean island in 1998 and raping her in Paris a year later.

Mr. Matthews, whose son James married Pippa Middleton at a sumptuous ceremony in 2017, strongly invalidates the charges against him.

The criminal investigation into the allegations of rape is expected to be completed within six months.

But judicial sources in Paris have confirmed that investigators from the French brigade for the protection of minors continue to investigate the case, about 14 months after Mr. Matthews' arrest.

& # 39; The investigation is ongoing & # 39 ;, the judicial source told MailOnline.

Details of the criminal investigation are withheld by the public according to strict French confidentiality laws.

The offense of & # 39; rape of a minor by a person with authority over his / her victim & # 39 ;, carries a maximum penalty of 15 years in France.

The alleged victim, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, traveled to Paris to tell the police that she had been raped by Mr. Matthews.

The British, now 37-year-old, told the French authorities that Mr. Matthews cared for and abused her when she was just 15 and that the first rape took place when she was 16.

One of the violations is said to have taken place on the French Caribbean island of St. Barts, where Matthews owns the £ 5.55 per night Eden Rock hotel.

The second attacker is said to have taken place in Paris.

She reportedly told the French police: & # 39; Afterwards I felt that I was blamed.

& # 39; I had feelings of self-hatred and felt worthless. & # 39;

The woman first entrusted her parents four years ago, after years of heart disease.

After Mr. Matthews was arrested, her father said: "She said it was a nuisance because she had kept it in the bottle for so long."

& # 39; It has caused her an immense emotional burden. She has not been able to form long-term relationships.

& # 39; She had the courage to speak out – and she did, and therefore she feels she can give herself a sense of closure. & # 39;

He added: & # 39; We all stand behind her and believe her. & # 39;

Mr. Matthews was stopped at Orly airport in Paris last March when he got off a plane from St. Barts, a French dependence, where he lives with his wife Jane, 71.

The tycoon was released on bail after being charged.

His official legal status in France is & # 39; mass and exam & # 39 ;, which is generally regarded as an indictment of a UK crime, although there is no exact equivalent in the UK legal system.

A second woman accused Matthews of raping her in April last year.

The woman, reportedly in her sixties, told South Yorkshire police that the tycoon had attacked her in Sheffield in the 1980s.

A spokeswoman for Mr. Matthews said the tycoon had no comment on the ongoing police investigation.
