The Guardia Civil handling the sexual assault of a six-year-old girl from Belfast while on holiday with her parents at a hotel near Palmanova yesterday completed their investigation and are now expected to hand their report over to the Palma judge presiding over the case. Yesterday the father of the six-year-old, who wishes to remain anonymous, broke his silence and issued a statement to the Daily Bulletin via the British Consulate in Palma, in which he reiterated what was reported in yesterday's Bulletin, but hit out at misinformed facts in other news media. “The family are very annoyed that the media have reported incorrect facts about the incident. The father states that his daughter was abducted by somebody unknown to all of the family, she was taken from their room while they were sleeping. She was sexually molested and not raped as reported. My daughter was able to identify the person amongst the other hotel guests. “The father stresses that throughout the ordeal their only means of support, comfort and practical assistance was provided by First Choice/Falcon and in particular their hotel representative and resort office supervisor.” The 17-year-old English speaking youth who has been released following his arrest on Monday evening, is still not allowed to leave the island and the police are continuing to hold his passport while the judge studies the Guardia Civil's report in the investigation. The case is now in the hands of a Palma judge. The Guardia Civil said yesterday that the police investigation “has concluded.”
