British teen denies faking Cyprus gang rape accusation

A British teenager who accused a group of Israeli youths of gang-raping her in Cyprus has pleaded not guilty to charges of making up the accusation. The girl was arrested after police said she withdrew an accusation that 12 Israeli teenagers raped her in a hotel room in mid-July. Her lawyers claim she withdrew the accusation under duress. A trial is due to start on Oct. 2.

“She faces up to a year in prison”. A one year sentence for trying to send 12 minors to jail for years and having them labeled as sex offenders for the rest of their lives? Calling a one year sentence a slap on the wrist would be the understatement of the year.

I don’t know about this one.. I kinda believe her... what’s the evidence that it didn’t happen?? Sounds like they’re assuming it didn’t happen because she retracted the accusation and the guys were released but that’s not in itself evidence. That could easily have been the result of political persuasion from the Israeli gov’t. If she is telling the truth then what a horrible thing for her to deal with. Gang raped and then prosecuted as if she’s a criminal..
