A BRITISH woman whose dad has been arrested on suspicion of raping her on holiday has claimed he is ‘100%’ innocent.
The unnamed holidaymaker told Greek cops on Thursday that she had been sexually assaulted on June 11 after both were drinking at a local bar.
It is reported that her dad allegedly committed “indecent acts” before striking her in the face and following her out into the street.
She told cops she could only remember that the perpetrator was wearing all-white, reports a newspaper in Greece.
Two days later, cops arrested her father claiming CCTV evidence showed him in all-white clothing, hitting her and dragging her to the beach where she was attacked.
Police say the woman had injuries consistent with rape and that marks on her body were from stones and branches found on the beach.
Police also confirmed that DNA samples had been collected.
But the woman has now spoken out about the arrest claiming that it could not possibly be her own father who raped her.
Speaking to the Mail Online, she said that he was at the hotel when the attack took place and believes CCTV and DNA evidence will exonerate him.
She said: “I can tell you 100% that he did not rape me. I live with my dad in the UK, I was on holiday with him in Greece and he’s the best dad in the world.
“There is no way he would do something so disgusting. I’ve told the Greek police this, but they are just ignoring me.
“This is an incredibly stressful, traumatic situation but there is hope for us.
“We’ve been told by the judge that if my dad’s DNA test clears him, then he will be free to go.”
The victim says she was drunk at the time of the assault but that Greek cops have the wrong person – and her attacker has been allowed to ‘roam free’ in the meantime.
She believes that all the CCTV evidence ‘will show he was back in the hotel’.
She added: “I have given police a description of the attacker, but they haven’t done anything about finding him.
“As far as they are concerned, my dad is guilty and it’s up to him to prove his innocence. But I know that the DNA results will clear him.
“I can’t wait for them to come because I just want to get back to the UK as quickly as possible.”
His daughter has vowed to stay in Greece until her father is freed.
Her father appeared in court on Tuesday where he pled not guilty to the charges of rape, sexual abuse and domestic violence.
He shared a hug with her before telling the judge: “I could never rape my own daughter. No one could do such a thing. I am not guilty”.
He could now be jailed for up to 18 months before facing a trial, according to Greek law.
She said: “I’m only going to go home with him. My mind is all over the place at the moment and I can’t even think straight.
“But once this is all settled, I will tell my story about how we’ve been treated by the Greek authorities.
“It’s shameful what they’ve done to my father while allowing the man who raped me to roam free.
