British teen who accused 12 men of gang rape in Cyprus found guilty of lying

Article here. Excerpt:

'A Cyprus court on Monday found a British teenager guilty of the charge of public mischief for lying about being gang-raped by a group of Israeli tourists at a hotel resort.

The 19-year-old, who has not been identified for legal reasons, accused the 12 Israelis — ages 15 to 18 — of raping her on July 17 at a hotel in Ayia Napa in a case that made headlines in the UK and Israel.

The Israelis were released without charge the same month after the woman was arrested on suspicion of “making a false statement about an imaginary crime.”

“The statements you have given were false,” Famagusta District Court Judge Michalis Papathanasiou told the woman in remarks translated by an interpreter in the town of Paralimni.'
