A German tourist visiting Italy may have severe brain damage after falling off a cliff in an alleged attempt to avoid being raped by an illegal migrant from North Africa.
Following months of investigation into the incident, the prosecutor’s office decided to conclude the investigation into the North African, identified as 32-year-old Zied Yakoubi, who had allegedly purposely pushed German tourist Alena Sudokova off a cliff in Sanremo, opening up a possible trial, Il Giornale reports.
The incident occurred last July and it was initially believed that the illegal migrant had attempted to murder Sudokova but the charge was changed to aggravated sexual violence in January of this year following interrogation of the victim in Germany.
Witnesses claim that they saw the pair fighting and arguing by Cape Nero when Yakoubi began to get violent with the German, slapping her in the face.
Due to the fall, which was around 230 feet, Sudokova has had severe memory problems and doctors have questioned whether she will ever walk again. The exact reason for her fall has not been clearly determined.
