Man to stand trial for rape of co-worker

Paphos criminal court decided Wednesday that a Greek national accused of raping a local woman would stand trial on December 1.

The 45-year-old man was arrested and remanded following a complaint made by a 38-year-old woman that he had raped her on October 22 in a restaurant toilet.

The man was released on bail after signing a personal guarantee of €75,000, surrendering his travel documents and agreeing to sign-in at Paphos central police station once a week. He was also put on the stop-list which operates at ports and airports forbidding exit from island.

The woman reported she was raped a week after the alleged offence was committed and was subjected to examinations carried out by state pathologist Eleni Antoniou who ruled the woman bore no external injuries.

After his arrest, the man was brought before Paphos district court and remanded for three days to facilitate investigations.

According the woman, the Greek man had pushed her into the toilets of the restaurant where they both work and raped her on the day in question.

Police were waiting for results of forensic tests being carried out on evidence collected, with the focus being on a pair of tights.
