Lawyers for Ribery, 30, and Benzema, 25, challenged the legal basis for the charges against their clients and the judge agreed that they had raised a legitimate question which will have to be addressed by another court before the trial can continue.

Neither Ribery nor Benzema attended the brief proceedings. Also absent was Zahia Dehar, the former call girl turned fashion designer at the centre of the case.
