MFA monitors situation with Belarusian girl victimized in Italy

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Belarus is monitoring the situation with the Belarusian girl who suffered in Italy and is ready to assist her, Foreign Ministry spokesman Andrei Shuplyak said.

“A Belarusian citizen visited Italy earlier to improve health, and from 2014 she lived in an Italian family. At the moment, she is in the center for citizens affected by violence. The Italian police are investigating the incident. Our embassy is in contact with Italian law enforcement agencies, monitoring the situation and, if necessary, ready to help the citizen of Belarus,” said Mr Shuplyak.

A married couple was earlier detained in Italy on charges of sexual violence and fraud against a 22-year-old girl from Belarus, who came to them for recovery.

In particular, it is reported that in 2014 the girl got into a serious accident when she was riding a bicycle and received a disability. The insurance company paid her 2 million 212 thousand euros. However, the Belarusian did not know anything about the payment, since the money was appropriated by the Italian couple. Also the Belarusian, when she was still a minor, was raped by the Italian man., based on BelTA
