She said: ‘I can tell you 100 per cent that he didn’t rape me. I live with my dad in the UK, I’ve been on vacation with him in Greece and he’s the best dad in the world.
‘There’s no way he’d do something so disgusting. I told the Greek police this, but they just ignored me.
‘This is an extremely stressful, traumatic situation but there is hope for us.
‘We were told by the judge that if my dad’s DNA test cleared him up, he would be free.’
This woman went to police last Thursday to report that she had been raped.
She admitted to being intoxicated at the time, and police say she can’t remember anything about her attacker having recorded that he was dressed all in white.
Police are said to have collected CCTV evidence showing the woman’s father – dressed in white – beating and then sexually assaulting her.
But she says the jailbreakers were wrong – insisting she told them her father, not the attacker, was wearing all-white.
She added that, when all CCTV evidence is finally collected, it will show [my dad] was back at the hotel when I was attacked.
“I gave the police a description of the attacker, but they didn’t do anything to find him,” she added.
‘As far as they know, my father is guilty and it is up to him to prove his innocence. But I know that the DNA results will unravel him.
‘I can’t wait for them to come because I just want to get back to the UK as quickly as possible.’
The man appeared in court in the Crete capital of Heraklion on Tuesday, where he pleaded not guilty to charges of rape, sexual abuse and domestic violence.
The attack happened last week in the resort town of Malia, with the man appearing in court in the island capital of Heraklion today.
He hugged his daughter before telling the judge: ‘I could never rape my daughter. No one can do such a thing. I’m not guilty. ‘
The father has been remanded in custody, and his trial will take place within the next 18 months according to Greek law.
His daughter has said that she will stay on Crete until the case is resolved.
She added: ‘I just went home to him. My mind is all over the place right now and I can’t even think straight.
‘But once it’s all over, I’ll tell my story of how we were treated by the Greek authorities. It’s a shame for what they did to my father while letting my rapist roam free. ‘
His daughter told MailOnline after the hearing: ‘The Greek police were horribly wrong.
‘I told them my father was dressed in white, not my attacker. But they misunderstood and thought it was my attacker who was dressed in white.
‘It’s just one example of the mess they’ve created in the investigation.’
After reporting the attack to police, medical examiners told local newspaper Neakriti that the woman was ‘covered’ with wounds consistent with rocks and tree branches found on the beach.
They added that she also had rape wounds and that DNA samples were collected.
In a police complaint, the woman testified that an unidentified man stopped and raped her in the early hours of last Thursday morning in a narrow street near the bar where she had been drinking with her husband. my father before that.
