How not to travel free

Last Monday two French women were detained by the Mossos d’Esquadra (Catalonian police).

The charge: faking rape.

The two women (19 and 18) didn’t have any money so they concocted a story in which they were hitchhiking when four men picked them up. According to the women, the men took them to their apartment where they tried to rape them by threatening them with box cutters. One of the girls escaped.

They entered the police station in tears. They both had torn clothing and superficial cuts and bruises. They then told their tale, but when the girl who said she was raped was to be examined by a doctor, she fessed up. She said they beat each other up thinking that the police, after hearing their story, would put them on a plane or bus back to France.
