The Seychelles Supreme Court acquitted the janitor of the five-star Six Senses Zil Pasyon hotel, who was facing 20 years of imprisonment for raping Russian journalist Anna Karabash. The case is terminated due to the absence of corpus delicti on the defendant’s petition, Snob reports.
According to Karabash, the suspect’s lawyer called the Russian woman a prostitute and a KGB agent in court, and the hotel management – a fraud who wanted to sue them for money. The janitor committed the crime on the night of May 4, 2017, Karabash says. The journalist demanded $ 541,000 for moral damage from the hotel.
Karabash created a web page where she told about her case and assured that she was ready to go all the way, inspired by the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements. The journalist may have to contact the African Human Rights Commission in Gambia, Karabash’s lawyer Yelena Chernova told RIA Novosti.
