Nini testifies in court

Posted on November 18, 2019 by

LEL’s Andrea Nini travelled to Cyprus last week to appear in court as an expert witness. The case is against a British woman, who reported a rape earlier this year. While an arrest was made at the time, the suspects were released without charges, after the woman retracted her original statement. Now on trial for public mischief, the woman denies having written the note, and claims she was coerced to produce the statement by the police. Testifying for the defence, Andrea backed her statement, providing evidence that the note was unlikely to have been written by a native speaker of English. Andrea’s testimony has been reported in multiple newspapers, although Manchet’s sources confirm that the reporting of the analysis shows varying degrees of accuracy.
