Brit, 19, is ‘raped by 37-year-old man who plied her with laughing gas and attacked her when she became dizzy’ on Greek party island Zakynthos
- The 37-year-old was given a fine of just four thousand euros
- He’s also been told not to leave the country, and has to check in at a police station twice a month
- The attack allegedly took place at a hotel in Laganas, on the island of Zakynthos
A 37-year-old man has allegedly drugged and raped a 19-year-old British tourist using laughing gas while they were out on a Greek party island.
The unnamed tourist was allegedly raped by the man on the Greek party island of Zakynthos after he plied her with laughing gas and took advantage of her when she was dizzy.
Greek newspaper Vradyni reported that he was let go by investigators on the island after he spent an hour apologising to cops, who charged him with rape and a violation of the country’s weapons laws.
Greek cops reportedly found two ampules of laughing gas, balloons, and 45 cartridges of 32mm rounds, in his hotel room in Laganas.
The unnamed man has been released on bail, and is now required to check in at his local police station twice a month on the 1st and 15th, and has been banned from leaving the country.
The 19-year-old was allegedly attacked on the Greek party island of Zakynthos
The shocking news comes after an inquest revealed that an 18-year-old woman took her own life after she was drugged and raped while on a holiday on the same island.
Julie Crowe, 18, from Dunshaughlin, County Meath in Ireland, died after she jumped off a bridge over the M3 motorway near Rathbeggan Lakes on November 4, 2019.
Dublin district coroner’s court heard of how Julie had developed a low mood and thoughts of self-harm after she was attacked on the holiday to Zakynthos with friends in August 2019.
Julie’s mother, Anna, told RTE in 2020, just two months after he daughter committed suicide, that Julie realised only after talking to friends that she had been raped during their stay on the Greek island of Zakynthos.
A psychiatrist who examined Julie in October 2019 told the inquest he had diagnosed her as suffering post-traumatic stress disorder and a moderate depressive episode.
Dr Omer Chaudhary said Julie had also come out to her friends as gay in June 2019 and to her family after she returned from her holiday in Greece.
He recalled that the teenager complained of not being able to cope and said she suffered increasing nightmares.
However, Dr Chaudhary said she had not shown any active intent or plan to kill herself.
