A millionaire property developer accused of raping a teenager has claimed that he fell on the alleged victim and ‘may have penetrated her’.
Ehsan Abdulaziz is accused of forcing himself on the 18-year-old as she slept on his sofa, after she and a friend went to his Maida Vale flat following a night out in August 2014.
The 46-year-old property developer met the pair in Cirque le Soir nightclub, a West End nightclub, and took them back to his apartment in his Aston Martin.
The court heard from the prosecution that Abdulaziz already knew the girl’s friend, and after having consensual sex with her left her to sleep before allegedly attacking the girl on the sofa.
According to The Telegraph, when first arrested Abdulaziz told police “She’ll have to prove it.”
Initially the millionaire told police that the girl had pulled him onto her, placing his hand between her legs. But after DNA testing revealed traces of semen inside the complainant he changed his story.
Jonathan Davies of the prosecution said:
On this occasion he said after he had sex with the complainant’s friend his penis was still erect and he had semen on his hands when he went into the living room.
He said in the second interview she pushed his hands down on to her vagina. He said that he did fall onto her and his penis may have penetrated her vagina. You may consider, members of the jury, him changing the account he was giving.”
The trial continues.
