    Default Boycott Cyprus?

    Ayia Napa: Mother of convicted Briton backs Cyprus boycott - BBC News

    Will you boycott Cyprus? Or chance for a cheap holiday?

    It seems several of the accused had links to hagh ranking Israelis. I am sure that did not affect the judges verdict...

    Not only am I boycotting Cyprus, I'm also going to holiday in Israel.

    Why would anyone let their teenage daughter go to Aya Napa on a "working holiday"?

    Prick.

    Unfortunately I think this girl has called wolf and the whole MeToo band have got behind her. She accused 12 men of rape, which it was quite obvious was not 12, and looked like a gangbang which she was upset about. Not ideal.

    This girl was raped by 4 men and videoed by the others. These are evidential facts.

    Her crime is that she was not a virgin and she is being punished for it, I expect the Cypriot authorities to hand her the full 1 year sentence for this and her temerity to complain about her treatment.

    I hope this does hurt Cyprus.

    Only one was consensual. Her only crime was to be raped by the other men of influential connections.

    Proff that #MeToo has a long way to go.

    A great pity the UK government will do almost nothing. About time the UK grew a spine.

    Nice one MF. Intelligent retort, eloquent reply.

    Conviction looks very dodgy from that BBC link - hours of questioning and a retraction statement given when no lawyer or translator was present, the judge refusing to hear any evidence about whether the alleged rape took place, the authenticity of the retraction or properly consider the video.

    There are many worse/more dangerous countries for holidaying but that isn't a good justice system.

    Of course rape is a difficult thing in many cases, just one person's word against another's, or several other's as in this case. You can't just assume the rapists are guilty but equally you can't just assume the allegation is false when there's lack of proof.

    I thought he summed it up quite well at a level you would understand.

    Indeed, hence my comment. We are not all as smart as you think you are.
