Rennes supporter hit by Neymar in 2019 files online harassment claim following identity leak

According to Le Parisien the Stade Rennais fan who was slapped by Neymar in 2019 and then harassed online after his identity was revealed on Twitter, had filed a complaint in October.

The fan had filed a complaint for collecting personal data by fraudulent or unfair means and moral harassment. He based his complaint on an article in Mediapart according to which Paris Saint-Germain had commissioned a communications agency, Digital Big Brother (DBB), between 2018 and 2020 to create fake Twitter accounts to conduct hostile campaigns against targets of the capital’s football club, which the latter disputes.

An ‘exempler’ Twitter account was found which posed itself as a group of PSG fans, yet ‘Paname Squad’ was the main culprit following PSG’s defeat to Rennes in the 2019 Coupe de France, having revealed the identity and date of birth of the fan on Twitter.

The claim says that following the disclosure of his identity, the Rennes supporter was “stopped in the street, the clientele of his restaurant decreased, people passed by his home and threatened him“.

According to a September report by the Directorate General of Internal Security (DGSI), after the match the PSG communications director asked Malik Nait-Liman, then the club’s supporter referral agent and a former DGSI agent, to find information about him. Malik Nait-Liman then asked a police officer still on duty to consult the files on criminal records.
