The mother of a British teenager convicted of making a false rape claim in Ayia Napa has backed calls for a tourism boycott of Cyprus.
She told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme she supported the campaign - mainly driven on social media - and said she believes the party resort is "absolutely not safe".
"And if you go and report something that’s happened to you, you’re either laughed at, as far as I can tell, or, in the worst case, something like what’s happened to my daughter may happen," she said.
The woman’s 19-year-old daughter told local authorities she was gang raped by up to 12 Israeli tourists in a hotel room on July 17, while she was working on the island.
But she was later arrested after police accused her of withdrawing her accusation 10 days after the alleged attack.
Pressure is now mounting on Cypriot authorities to reassess the case.
