A 19-year old woman of Derbyshire who revealed that she was held down and raped by up to 12 Israeli men in Cyprus was allowed to return home.
The emotional girl expressed her feeling after she was allowed to go back home. She said that she was relieved that she will now be allowed to fly back to the UK.
She remained in custody for a year and fined 1,700 euro (£1,500) at Famagusta District Court in Paralimni. The girl will now walk free and be handed back her passport.
Judge Michelins Papathanasiou concluded that young Britain deserved a ‘second chance’ despite the ‘seriousness of her crime’.
The judge said: “Her psychological state, her youth, that she has been away from her family, her friends and academic studies this year. This has led me to decide to give her a second chance and suspend the sentence for three years.”
British embassy officials were also present in court at that time. It is expected that the flight arrangement for the girl to return the UK has already been made.
