It turned out that a group of eight 15-year-old teenagers had repeatedly raped a peer for more than a month, since the beginning of November, and filmed what was happening on their phones. They distributed the video on the mobile phones of friends and classmates, and the victim was bullied and intimidated to keep him silent.
“At some point, the parents realized that something was wrong with the child. The 15-year-old teenager found courage and told about the nightmare he had experienced. Then they turned to the police, six arrests were made in the authorities. Two more of their friends of the same age are wanted,” according to ERT.
It is reported that one of the teenagers fled to Albania, where he comes from.
The prosecutor’s office charged the detainees with crimes. However, one of them had to be released with restrictive conditions, as he was not yet 15 years old.
