The Irish police have been ordered to hand over evidence to a woman suing Conor McGregor.
A Dublin woman is currently suing McGregor and one of his associates over an incident that allegedly took place in December 2018. The woman claimed McGregor raped her in a hotel.
The case has since been investigated with no criminal charges being brought forward. However, it became a civil suit and a personal injury case with a hearing scheduled for this month.
As per Independent.ie, in a pre-trial motion, the woman “sought discovery of documents and materials from the Gardaí which her lawyers argue are relevant to her claim.”
The order was granted and the Gardai are now required to disclose “any statements given to them by the defendants and any witnesses or persons while they investigated an incident which is alleged by the woman took place in 2018.”
Additionally, CCTV stills or photographs taken from various locations across Dublin between the evening of December 8 and December 10 will also have to be handed over.
All data, downloads, reports, or information from any mobile phones obtained or interrogated in the course of the investigation are also to be discovered.
Conor McGregor Denies Any Wrongdoing
For his part, McGregor has denied all accusations towards him.
When the lawsuit initially became news back in January 2021 in the buildup to McGregor’s rematch with Dustin Poirier, the Irishman responded to a question about the situation during the UFC 257 pre-fight press conference.
“It’s old news, it was investigated thoroughly over the course of two long years and I was cleared of any wrongdoing, and that’s it,” McGregor said.
“I have so much positivity in my life, I have got a great challenge ahead of me on Saturday night and I’m very excited to get in there.”
McGregor is currently targeting a return to the Octagon by the end of the summer.
The former two-weight champion hasn’t competed since July last year when he suffered a broken leg in a first-round TKO loss to Poirier in their trilogy fight.
