A 23-year-old Greek woman and her boyfriend relived scenes of horror in the court of Thessaloniki last week. The woman was gang-raped by three migrants from Syria and Algeria more than a year ago.
It all started on the 2nd of October 2016, when the female victim and her boyfriend attended a solidarity event for refugees at their university in the city of Thessaloniki.
After the party, the student and her boyfriend were passing through the university’s yard, when suddenly three migrants attacked them with broken bottles and tied them up.
The immigrants forced the woman to perform oral sex and robbed her, while at the same time, only a few meters away, the solidarity event to support refugees was in full swing.
The Greek police managed to arrest 3 immigrants, aged 19, 22 and 29, from Algeria and Syria for the rape case. Inside the men’s apartment, the police found drugs, 5,500 euros in cash, as well as stolen jewellery.
Last week, Thessaloniki’s court of appeals decided to convict the 22 and 29 year old Algerians to 29 and 21 years in jail. It’s expected that the third perpetrator, the 19-year-old man, will be judged by a juvenile court.
