Following the current SPIEGEL reporting on our client Cristiano Ronaldo, we hereby declare
the following: The reporting in SPIEGEL is blatantly illegal. It violates the personal rights of
our client Cristiano Ronaldo in an exceptionally serious way. This is an inadmissible
reporting of suspicions in the area of privacy. It would therefore already be unlawful to
reproduce this reporting.
We have been instructed to immediately assert all existing claims
under press law against SPIEGEL, in particular compensation for moral damages in an
amount corresponding to the gravity of the infringement, which is probably one of the most
serious violations of personal rights in recent years.
