Tammi Forsythe Biography
Who is Tammi Forsythe ?
A British woman whose own father is accused of raping her while on holiday in Crete has bravely waived his right to anonymity to prove that he is ‘100% innocent’.
Tammi Forsythe says the real rapist is still out there while her father languishes in a Greek prison accused of the disgusting s*xual assault on her.
Tammi, 33, a mother of four, relives her ordeal of being dragged from an alley into a bush in the early hours of the morning and says she wants to be named so Greek police can catch the real rapist – revealing her fears that she may be pregnant by her attacker.
Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, Tammi fumed: “It’s not easy for me to come out publicly as a rape victim, but the world needs to know how my father and I suffered.”
‘He is 100% innocent, he did not rape me. The Greek police have treated us appallingly.
“As far as they’re concerned, this is just the case of a drunk British man on holiday being raped. If we were Greek citizens, we wouldn’t have been treated like this.’
She added: ‘The police decided early on that my father was guilty and have done nothing to find the real rapist. The time has come for him to speak out so we can get justice.’
Forsythe was arrested on June 11, two days after Tammi reported being raped while out on a night out with him on the main avenue of the resort town of Malia, which is lined with bustling bars and nightclubs popular with Brits.
He is currently being held in a prison in the city of Tripoli on the Greek mainland and is awaiting the results of DNA tests.
Forsythe has denied committing the rape and has been told by Greek prosecutors that he will stand trial within 18 months or could be released depending on the outcome of the results. Under Greek law, he has only been informally charged with the crime.
Tammi, who lives with her father in Hull, revealed that she is still on Crete, where she has been talking to him on the phone every day.
She yelled, ‘I can only talk to him for a few minutes. He is in a terrible mental state and he does not understand why this has happened because he has not done anything wrong.
‘My father suffers from diabetes and other serious medical problems. He hasn’t eaten well for five days and is about to collapse. I’m really worried that all of this might kill him.
Tammi revealed that she fears she is pregnant after the attack. She is the mother of three sons aged 12, 10 and 5 and a daughter of 15 and is separated from her father.
Tammi said: ‘This holiday has turned into a horror movie. I really suffer from stress and anxiety, which has only gotten worse because I feel a little sick and I haven’t had my period. I’m usually very regular and it’s not like me.
‘I’m 60% sure I’m pregnant. The British Consulate has told me that I need to go to a medical clinic for a blood test, but I have been having such bad panic attacks that I need someone to come with me. But I am here alone and I have no one to help me.
Tammi was on holiday with her father to celebrate her birthday and it was their first time abroad together after the lifting of Covid travel restrictions. They were due to return to the UK on June 19.
Referring to the DNA evidence, Tammi said: “We were promised it would be a priority, but it hasn’t been proven to be the case.” I have not been given any information on when we will get the results. The Greek authorities just don’t seem to care. As far as they’re concerned, they’ve got their man and my father can rot in jail.
Greek authorities insist they arrested Forsythe after CCTV footage from the help bar showed her engaging in “inappropriate s*xual activity” with Tammi in the hours before the attack.
CCTV footage and Tammi denies her father did anything wrong, replying: ‘He was drunk to the bone; He could barely move me. He was just trying to get me up to take me back to the hotel and put me to bed.
“I attacked him because he was very drunk and angry. At one point, I think I bit his hand. That’s all the CCTV footage shows: a father trying to help his very drunk daughter. There was nothing s*xual between us. It’s a disgusting and ridiculous thing to say.
Recalling the night of the attack, Tammi revealed that she and her father arrived at the Help Bar on Malia’s main drag around 1:30am. m. on Thursday June 9 and left around 4:55 a.m. m. She spent most of the night drinking Sambuca shots while he drank pints.
Tammi admitted: ‘She was so drunk she could barely stand up. Somehow, I managed to stagger out of the bar, but we continued to argue. I was angry because I just wanted to be left alone so I could continue sleeping.
We went out and sat on a concrete wall. My father hugged me, but I pushed him away and told him to go to hell. He was so drunk that he didn’t know what he was doing or saying. He just wanted him to leave me alone.
After her father walked back to her hotel, Tammi revealed that she stumbled down a path and tripped over a dead end, where she fell and she was too drunk to get up.
She added: ‘It was around 7:15am. and I saw a man standing over me. He grabbed my legs, dragged me into a bush and raped me. I was stunned by the whole thing and after it happened I couldn’t move for about 15 minutes because I was too scared.
She admitted that she was too drunk to provide an adequate description of her attacker to the Greek police and that she could not remember what he looked like, apart from telling them that he was shorter than her and was wearing a white T-shirt.
After the attack, Tammi revealed that she returned to her hotel around 8 a.m., fell asleep for several hours, and after waking up, remembered the rape and called the British consulate in Crete, who told her to immediately report it to the police. policeman.
She said: ‘I told the police about the events of the night, where my father and I had been drinking and they took me there to retrace my steps.
“I told them I was very drunk, but they were wrong when they saw the security camera footage. They completely misunderstood everything she was saying. I told them that my father was wearing all white, but they took that to mean the attacker was wearing all white.
“I was treated like a criminal, not a victim, and after suffering this horrendous crime, I am suffering even more now because of what they are doing to my father.”
