The British and Italian authorities have nearly concluded the case of Chloe Ayling’s kidnapping. The model, who supposedly was abducted last July by a Pole national to be sold as a sex slave in the Middle East, declared that she is very grateful for their efforts. Investigations revealed that the woman’s story has some doubtful aspects.
Kidnapping Story Not Consistent, Authorities
During the Wednesday proceedings, a Milan court heard the testimonies of all the officers involved in Chloe Ayling’s case, the British model who was kidnapped last July by Lucasz Herba, a 30-year-old Polish national, currently residing in Great Britain.
According to the court documents, last July, luring the 20-year-old British model under the pretense of organizing a photo shoot in Milan, Herba and his brother, 36-year-old Michal Konrad Herba, kidnapped Ayling, with the intent of selling her as a sex slave in a deep web auction.
The woman declared before the court that Herba and his brother beat her, drugged her, and forced into a suitcase. Chloe Ayling told the authorities that after Herba and his brother kidnapped her, she thought that they would murder her, but later learned that the men wanted to bid her on the deep web sex slave market.
Moreover, the British model claimed that her abductors let her go after learning that she had a child. However, the authorities are still investigating Ayling’s case, as the kidnapping story has several inconsistencies, including a short clip depicting Ayling holding hands with Herba inside a shopping center.
The woman says that the ordeal left her scarred for life, but there are many who believe that her kidnapping story was no more than a publicity stunt, carefully staged in order to increase the model’s popularity.
Both men are being held in custody for the duration of the trial.
