Skip to comments.UK woman who accused Israelis of rape in Cyprus indicted
Posted on 07/30/2019 4:40:38 AM PDT by Eleutheria5
A British teenager was remanded in custody in Cyprus on Tuesday after she was arrested last week on suspicion of falsely accusing 12 Israeli tourists of gang rape.
The 19-year-old was indicted the Famagusta District Court in Paralimni in southeast Cyprus Tuesday, and now faces "public mischief".
If found guilty, she could potentially face a maximum sentence of one year in prison and a fine of around 1,700 euros ($1,900).
The young woman, who was not named.....
Her lawyer, Andreas Pittadjis, said she is expected to enter a plea when she appears again on August 7. He asked the court for time to "collect videotapes and statements" gathered by the Cypriot police during the investigation.
Initially, the teenager had alleged that 12 Israelis gang raped her at the hotel where she was staying in the popular resort of Ayia Napa on July 17.
The Israeli tourists aged 15 to 18 were arrested shortly after the complaint was filed.
After five of the 12 Israeli teens were proven to have not been present at the time of the alleged rape, including some who had clear alibis placing them elsewhere during the incident, Cyprus authorities freed the five, who returned to Israel last Thursday and Friday.
Over the weekend, the accuser recanted her claims, admitting that she had filed a false report to police accusing the teens of rape.
According to an attorney for some the defendants and unnamed local police officials, the accuser told investigators that she had had consensual relations with several of the Israeli teens, but later sought to take revenge on them by accusing them and their traveling companions of rape.
One source told AFP the woman said she was angry and insulted that the teens had filmed their encounters with her.

Hope they don’t let that tape get out. If one of the guys is 15 and it shows him then whoever made the video will be in deep doodoo.
Manipulative women should lose more often.
Maximum of 1 yr in jail for attempting to imprison 12 kids and ruin their reputations for life?
This false accusing needs to be stopped and the way to do it is to make them pay. 5 yrs in jail at a minimum and the ramifications of false accusation ought to be read to them as the file the chgs.
I’m guessing it is perfectly legal for adult women to molest 15 year olds in Cypress. Also, it only says 5 of the 12 who proved their innocence were released. What of the other 7?
Would it be safe to speculate that "British teenager" really means "prostitute"?
For punishment, sent to a muzzy country where she will see what it means to cry “rape.”
Age of contest in most countries is 14.
“The young woman, who was not named.....”
I wonder if it’s because we would find out how British she is..
Potential of one year? She tried to ruin their lives and should die of old age in a prison cell.
Whether she received luker for her services or not, putting out with multiple partners is not only immoral, but spreads disease. What’s the matter with kids today?
One wonders who paid for all of them to visit Cyprus and screw around. If the young woman is a prostitute, that would explain her funding, but not the young men’s.
Parents with more dollars than sense.
I think she was raped. I’ve read several articles on the case, and that is the conclusion I’ve drawn.
An 8-hour interrogation which wasnt recorded! That enables the police to coerce false confessions. If they dont want to be falsely accused then all they have to do is record the interrogation. After all, this is the 21st century.
The girl was injured, and her injuries were said to be consistent with rape.
All the boys need do to prove their innocence is hand over their phones - the ones they recorded the incident on. No phones implies they are guilty. What could be simpler?
