The trial began this week at Elche’s Provincial Court of a British man accused of raping a woman that he met in an Orihuela Costa bar.


The alleged incident happened in 2012, and he was arrested two years later in the United Kingdom on a European arrest warrant, before being brought back to Spain. Prosecutors have called for an eleven year jail sentence for the unnamed man who had consensual sex with the woman, before allegedly forcing her into extreme sex acts that he she did not consent to.
