Second station-rape suspect released

(ANSA) - Naples, March 28 - A Naples court on Thursday
ordered the release of the second of three men suspected of
being involved in the rape of a 24-year-old woman in the lift of
a station on Naples' Circumvesuviana round-Vesuvius railway
earlier this month.
The court ordered the release from jail of 18-year-old
Antonio Cozzolino.

On Friday 18-year-old Alessandro Sbrescia was released by a
different section of the city's detention-review court.

The third suspect, Raffaele Borrelli, is still in jail.
The lawyers of the three suspects have argued the sexual
relations were consensual.
A medical report found evidence that the victim did not give
consent, saying they were signs she froze due to shock during
the attack at the San Giorgio a Cremano station, sources said on
Deputy Premier and Labour and Industry Minister Luigi Di Maio
blasted the handling of the case.
"Two of the suspected rapists of the young woman who was
raped in a Circumvesuviana lift at the start of March have been
released from prison and are free again," 5-Star Movement (M5S)
leader Di Maio said on Facebook.
"It is not for me to go into the details of the decision, but
let me say that it is shameful that two of the three criminals
are already free to go about their business just a few weeks
after the attack".
Speaking via her lawyer, Maurizio Capozzi, the victim from
the town of Portici expressed dismay.
"I'm bitter and disappointed, above all because I cannot
understand how a decision like this was made," she said.
"It just makes me think that my story was not believed".
