Mother whose 15-year-old girl suffered brain damage from a rapist who tried to kill her with a rock during an attack in Greece reveals fears her child won’t be able to walk or talk nine years later

  • Myrto was left bedridden and unable to communicate after being raped
  • She was 15 when she was raped and stoned by a stranger in Paros, Greece
  • Adhmet Wakas, 24, tried to kill her by repeatedly throwing a rock at her head

A mother has spoken of her pain nine years after her daughter was raped and beaten with a rock by a stranger when she was 15.

Myrto was bedridden and unable to communicate after the incident while on vacation on the Greek island of Paros.

She was raped by 24-year-old Adhmet Wakas after wandering a short distance from her family in July 2012.

He then tried to kill her by hitting her head on the rocks on the shore before repeatedly throwing a rock at her head. Shortly afterwards, she was found half-naked and unconscious.

Despite the doctors’ best efforts, Myrto suffered from aphasia as a result of serious injuries to her head and lungs. To this day she cannot understand or formulate language.

Aphasia is when a person has difficulty with their language or speech and is usually caused by damage to the left side of the brain.

Nine years after the shocking crime, her mother, Mary Kotrotsou, took to Facebook to express her grief and anger at the event.

In the poignant social media post, Mary said, “Nine years…it’s been the last time I saw you walk.

“Nine years have passed and I haven’t heard your voice tweaking endlessly.

“Nine years… of hospitals, surgeries, treatments and unstoppable pain, even now.

“Nine years… you don’t live your life like your peers, you just watch and understand.

“Nine years… running to whatever doctor tells me he can do something. To any therapist for any treatment. Where I read that he may have been presented in the medical field and has a relationship with the brain. In Greece and abroad.

“Nine years… praying and hoping for a miracle from God because I’ve got nothing else to do.

“Nine years… when ordinary people ask me about your health and I don’t know what to answer.

‘Nine years of pain and sorrow for the life you will not live. Not for me. for you alone.

‘Today I accidentally read that it is World Brain Day. What an irony for you that on this day a monster destroyed your own brain!’

Mary also revealed that her daughter is bedridden and could only move around in a wheelchair.

She wrote in the post, “I’m waiting for the state to take responsibility for what happened to you because it wasn’t an accident, it wasn’t a car accident.”

Wakas was working in Paros at the time and fled after committing the crime. Police arrested him shortly afterwards in a suburb of Athens.

A court sentenced him to life imprisonment plus 25 years for attempted murder, rape and theft with aggravated circumstances in 2017.
