Cyprus police to reexamine UK woman’s gang rape claim against Israelis

Cyprus police said Wednesday they would review whether mistakes were made after a young British woman was cleared of falsely claiming she was gang raped by 12 Israeli tourists in 2019.

Defense lawyers successfully argued on Monday that there had been a miscarriage of justice when a district court in January 2020 found her guilty and handed her a suspended four-month jail term.

In a statement issued on Wednesday by Justice Abroad, Michael Polak, the lawyer who coordinated the appeal against the woman’s conviction, called for the case to be reopened and demanded an inquiry into what went wrong.
