UK working holiday firm ends Ayia Napa trips over rape claim

The teenager’s mother has called for a tourist boycott of Cyprus saying it is not safe for women. 

On The Beach, an online travel agent has also suspended advertising for the hotel on its website “for the foreseeable future”.

The British teenager at the centre of the case has pleaded with Boris Johnson to “bring me home”.

“Every second of this ordeal has been a waking nightmare,” the woman said.

“I’m 19 and all I want to do is clear my name and come home to my family,” she told The Sun newspaper.

“I would say to both the Foreign Secretary and Prime Minister, both of whom are fathers, please support me with your actions, not just with your words.”

She is due to be sentenced next Tuesday, and is facing up to a year in jail.

Pressure has continued to mount on the Cypriot authorities over the case, and one of the country’s former justice ministers said the public in Cyprus feel the 19-year-old “has been punished enough”.

Kypros Chrysostomides was among a number of prominent legal figures in Cyprus who wrote to attorney general Costas Clerides urging him to intervene in the case.
