Eight minors convicted over gang rape of schoolmate in western Athens

A three-judge Juvenile Court in Athens convicted eight teenager boys over the gang-rape of a 15-year-old schoolmate in Ilion suburb of western Athens in December 2022.

The court acquitted the four girls who were tried with their peers and who had allegedly witnessed the abuse.

In a closed-door session, the court found the eight teenagers guilty of rape, complicity in rape and pornography. It handed three of the accused a three-year suspended jail sentence, and imposed unspecified reformatory measures on the remaining five.

According to the case file, the eight minors had raped the 15-year-old boy repeatedly over the course of two months in an abandoned house in the suburb of Ilion, western Athens and recorded the abuse on video, sharing the footage with other pupils at the same school.

During the trial, all eight denied the brutality of their actions and claimed that what their classmate experienced was simply “sexual experimentation.”
