On one side, the institution par excellence, the police. And on the other side, two American girls, between the fumes of alcohol and cannabis. The undertones are very clear and was quite evident in Friday’s reports: Can we believe these two girls? Couldn’t the accusation of rape be a fabrication?
The media scandal machine did not start immediately, since they are not “our women to defend.” A note from the U.S. Department of State changes the record: “We take these accusations very seriously. Our overseas offices are always ready to assist U.S. citizens who are victims of crime.” The attitude has changed.
The two 21-year-old women are in shock. Their versions of the facts, in separate and repeated interrogations, are consistent.
