British Teen Who Was Jailed In Cyprus For ‘Crying Rape’ Aged 18

For one young woman last September – an economics undergraduate at a Russell Group university – starting university was an especially difficult experience.

She would introduce herself and wait for a glimmer of recognition, a quizzical brow, then the dreaded, ‘Aren’t you that girl who…?’

We can’t state her name here – UK law forbids it – but on the internet’s wild west, it’s easy to rip away the flimsy veneer of anonymity supposed to protect this vulnerable 21-year-old.

A simple search of her name will throw up a mosaic of unpixelated private pictures accompanied by lurid details of the ordeal which has brought her this unwanted attention.

Her story has been shared the world over – in everything from debates about Western licentiousness, state-sanctioned corruption and misogyny, to vile trolling ‘pile-ons’ calling her the worst names imaginable.

For she is the ‘Cyprus gang rape’ girl, a case which first made headlines in 2019 (left).
