A London court has cleared a rich Saudi Arabian immigrant of raping an 18-year-old girl as she slept. He argued that he accidentally tripped and penetrated her with his erect penis, which just happened to be protruding from his underwear.
“I fell down but nothing ever happened, between me and this girl nothing ever happened” Ehsan Abdulaziz, 46, told the court.
The property developer and businessman, who is married with a child, invited two women back to his flat after a night out. He had paid £1,000 for a private table in a nightclub and promised to drive the two women home in his Aston Martin sports car.
After a change of plans he brought both women back to his fancy West London flat, where he offered them vodka before taking the older friend, 24, into his bedroom for sex.
He told the court he had never before had a one-night stand in the 20 years he had lived in London. Talking about the friend who he slept with, he said: “She’s a very sweet girl, a very nice girl, I see her quite often, I see these girls, they go out quite often.”
The teenage complainant, who fell asleep on the sofa, claimed she woke in the early hours of the morning to find Mr. Abdulaziz on top of her, forcing himself inside her.
Jonathan Davies, prosecuting, had told the court: “She said, ‘what are you doing?’ he said ‘it’s fine’ indicating that her friend was asleep. She got up to find her friend, tried to wake her but couldn’t, she then tried to get out of the flat as quickly as she could.
“She was very upset about what had happened to her and because she couldn’t wake her friend, she called two friends, she then called the police.”
Mr. Abdulaziz had said, “She’ll have to prove it”, when he was arrested, according to the Daily Mail.
He argued before the court that the woman had pulled him down towards her, and traces of his DNA could have been found in her vagina because of the fall.
“I’m fragile, I fell down but nothing ever happened, between me and this girl nothing ever happened”.
