Anger over treatment of alleged victim at Pamplona gang-rape trial
Case against ‘la Manada’ has caused outrage as supporters of alleged victim say it has appeared as if she is on trial
A verdict is due in the trial of five men accused of gang-rape during the running of the bulls festival in Pamplona last year, in a case where it appeared to many of the alleged victim’s supporters in Spain that she was on trial.
The alleged rape occurred in the early hours of 7 July 2016 during the popular San Fermín festival. The woman, a 18-year-old from Madrid, met the five men – one of whom was in the Spanish army – as she was making her way to the car she was sleeping in while staying in the city.
