UK: Protesters call for boycott as teen faces sentencing in Cyprus gang rape case

Protesters gathered outside London's Cypriot High Commission on Monday, to demonstrate against the conviction of a British woman, who was found guilty of lying about being gang-raped in Cyprus. Demonstrators waved signs and called for a boycott of the Mediterranean island state ahead of the young Briton's expected sentencing hearing on Tuesday. «[We are] standing here in solidarity for the... Еще victim, showing she's not alone, that there are people out here that support her, that believe her. That have seen this injustice and think something should be done,» said one demonstrator. The woman was found guilty on a charge of public mischief on December 30. She had made allegations that she was gang-raped by 12 Israeli teenagers in an Ayia Napa hotel on July 17, before retracting her statement 10 days later. The defendant has said police forced her to sign a made-up confession of lying, after pressuring her to retract her statement.
