Report: UK woman says 12 Israeli teens filmed rape in Cyprus hotel

A British woman who alleged rape against 12 Israeli teens
said the young men held her down and filmed the sexual assault while she screamed, according to reports in the Cypriot media Thursday.



A Cyprus police official on Tuesday said 12 Israelis aged 16-18 have been detained after a 19-year-old woman alleged that she was raped in the resort town of Ayia Napa. The remand of the young men was to be extended by at least a week by a Famagusta district court in order to allow the DNA evidence they’ve provided to be examined.

According to the reports, the woman met one of the suspects at a party and had agreed to go to his hotel room at around 3:00am. The alleged victim claims that once inside, 11 other teens entered the room and proceeded to rape the woman.


The reports also suggest the local police so far haven’t gathered enough evidence to implicate all 12 of the teens in the assault.


“The Israelis were drunk … I’m sure she was raped,” said one victim’s friends who also attended the party. “I know her, she wouldn’t sleep with 12 men. I hope those involved will be harshly punished.”

Attorney Nir Yeslovich, who represents two of the suspects, said that nine out of 12 teens deny having any sexual relations with the 19-year-old woman.


The lawyers claims only three of the accused men have admitted to having sex with the British teen and all three claim the act was consentual.


The Foreign Ministry and the local Israeli envoy has been in touch with the suspects and their families.


Ayia Napa is very popular with younger tourists for its pristine beaches and vibrant nightlife.
