rape sexual crimes assault victim germans

The two Germans accused of raping and attempting to rape two tourists from the Netherlands in Crete were released on restrictive terms after their testimony yesterday.

As Creta Post reported, the two defendants claimed that they were innocent and that what happened to the two women was done of their own free will.

However, it seems that their testimony did not convince investigators.

With the consent of the prosecutor, they were released on the condition that they give 5,000 euros each as a financial guarantee and were banned from leaving Greece.

It is recalled that the girls, aged 19 and 22, said on Sunday night that the Germans, 21 and 23 years old, went to the men's room after meeting them in a bar in Hersonissos.

There, according to the complaint, the 23-year-old raped the 19-year-old and the 21-year-old tried to rape the 22-year-old girl.

In addition, the two girls complained that in the same room were two friends of the young people who did not take part in the heinous act.
