Swedish woman's rape claims ‘part of Greek holiday insurance scam’

A Swedish woman falsely accused several holidaymakers on a Greek island of raping her as part of an insurance scam, a lawyer has claimed.

Men have been warned to be on their guard after the 26-year-old woman claimed a total of €800,000 in insurance after lodging allegations of rape on the island of Kos.

It is believed that her victims include at least four Britons, according to a lawyer representing one of the falsely accused.

An international hunt involving Greek and Swedish police and Interpol has failed to find the woman, described as an attractive blonde.

According to the Greek media, she was “fabricating charges of being raped so that she could draw large amounts of insurance as compensation”.
