The victim was afraid of the accused and had to sleep with her relatives about thirty times.
“I didn’t know where he lived, but I was afraid he knew where I lived,” she explained.
According to her, it was clear he “needed help” and he multiplied his messages and attempts to contact her.
“On the only day I went to the office in weeks, he sent me flowers. […] I was so scared, I was still wondering if he was following me,” the victim said.
The trial continues Thursday.
