A British teenager has been given a four-month suspended sentence after being found guilty of lying about being gang-raped in Cyprus.
Ayia Napa Briton had contacted police hours after claiming to have been raped on July 17, 2019 at the Pambos Napa Rocks Hotel.
The report resulted in the arrest of twelve men who were later freed after the supposed victim retracted her claims.
She was charged for mischief and spent about a month in prison before being granted bail in August, 2019.
Her sentence was suspended for three years and she has been ordered to pay €148 (£125) in legal fees. The teenager now plans to return to the UK.
Judge Michalis Papathanasiou told the suspect he was giving her a “second chance”.
The suspect has however said Cypriot police made her falsely confess to lying about the incident at a hotel – something police have denied.
