Ehsan Abdulaziz, a 46-year-old millionaire property developer, has just been cleared of rape charges filed by an 18-year-old girl who spent the night in his flat.
Abdulaziz claims he never raped her, but must have “tripped and penetrated” her by accident.
Before the incident, he had already had sex with her 24-year-old friend. Abdulaziz alleges that when he went to offer her some clothes to sleep in, she pulled him close to her, and that’s when he fell. Then, he said the girl pushed his hand between her legs.
Although his semen and DNA were found inside the young woman, he supposedly still had semen on his hands from his previous romp with her friend.
“I’m fragile. I feel down but nothing ever happened between me and this girl,” he explained.
He met the two of them while partying at Cirque le Soir nightclub in London’s West End.
After Abdulaziz had a private conversation with the judge regarding what happened, the jury only deliberated for 30 minutes before deciding he was innocent.
