She is now under arrest after police discovered that her claim was untrue
A Romanian woman who reported that she had been kidnapped and sexually abused to cover up an infidelity has been arrested by police in Alicante.
The supposed assault was reported by her Ecuadorian boyfriend in February, and later confirmed by the woman herself when questioned as part of the police investigation. She told them that her assailant was a man who had brought her to Spain some years ago with a promise of work, and had then forced her into prostitution.
The investigation determined that her claim was false, and she was taken into custody. She admitted after her arrest that she had made the story up to stop her partner discovering that she had been unfaithful.
