Woman to be deported after false rape claim

A 28-year-old woman who reported to police that she had been raped while kept locked in a flat for a month has retracted and was now facing deportation, Limassol police said on Tuesday.

During questioning, the woman from Bulgaria admitted to police that she had lied. Her complaint led to the arrest of a 29-year-old Bangladeshi man in connection with abduction and rape.

The woman admitted to police that she had come to Cyprus to conduct a sham wedding with the man. The plan was then to travel to Denmark.

It is understood that she had been paid €1,000.

But it appears that the woman changed her mind and decided to lie so that she could get out of the situation.

Police said it has been decided to deport both individuals.
