Cristiano Ronaldo's lawyer has released a statement publicly affirming his client's innocence regarding a rape accusation dating back to 2009 and claiming that multiple reported documents implicating the superstar were altered and/or forged.

Peter Christiansen issued a statement in which he "does not deny" Ronaldo and Ms Mayorga reached a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) in 2010.

A message left with the firm representing Mayorga by USA TODAY Sports was not immediately returned on Wednesday. Lawyers for the 34-year-old say she signed a non-disclosure agreement with the player in 2010 but chose to break it after learning of some of the contents of the documents.

"To be clear, Mr Ronaldo vehemently denies all of the allegations in the complaint and has consistently maintained that denial for the last nine years".

"The documents which purportedly contain statements by Mr. Ronaldo and have been reported in the media are complete fabrications", Christiansen wrote.

Australia refuses to abandon coal despite IPCC warning
World transportation systems must be transformed from fossil fuels to electric to take advantage of that shift to renewables. Australia has more than 21 coal-fired power stations in operation, and still relies heavily on coal for electricity.

"While Mr Ronaldo does not deny the existence of the mutual agreement and release, his motivations for agreeing to that resolution have been twisted to say the least".

'This settlement is by no means a confession of guilt.

'Mr Ronaldo was advised to privately resolve the allegation against him in order to avoid the inevitable attempts that are now being made to destroy a reputation that has been built upon hard work, athleticism and honour'.

Cristiano Ronaldo has claimed he and his rape accuser returned to the club they met in after having sex.

Las Vegas police reopened a sexual assault investigation of the encounter between Ronaldo and Kathryn Mayorga. "Once again, for the avoidance of doubt, Cristiano Ronaldo's position has always been, and continues to be, that what happened in 2009 in Las Vegas was completely consensual". Unfortunately, it is now involved in a type of litigation that is very common in the United States of America.

'Gay cake': It was about the message, not a man
The Equality Commission for Northern Ireland, which supported Lee's case, expressed its disappointment. Gay marriage is still illegal in Northern Ireland, despite passing in the Assembly.

In response to the question of whether Ms. C had ever raised her voice, screamed or called out, X answered according to the document: "She said no and stop several times".

"By 2015, dozens of entities [including law firms] in different parts of Europe were attacked and saw a lot of information on their electronic equipment being stolen by a hacker. I pushed him away and kept saying, "No".

Christiansen replaced high-profile criminal defence attorneys David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld as Ronaldo's legal representative in Las Vegas.

"Cristiano Ronaldo does not deny that he agreed to conclude an agreement", added Christiansen.

"This hacker tried to sell such information, and a media outlet irresponsibly ended up publishing some of the stolen documents, significant parts of which were altered and / or completely fabricated".
