The German woman, 19, claims that two Israeli men raped her in a hotel room on Crete
Two Israeli people in their thirties have been arrested in Crete on suspicion of raping a 19-year-old German woman.
The teenager met the two men in a club on the Greek holiday island and claimed that they had raped her while all three were staying in a hotel room, according to a police report.
A lawyer for the suspects, who both appear on Tuesday for a hearing to extend their detention on the island, called the charges a & # 39; total fabrication & # 39 ;.
It is after a British tourist who accused 12 Israeli men in Cyprus was released on bail after claiming to have made false claims of group rape.

Referring to the most recent case in Crete, the defendant's lawyer told lawyer Gila Liber Golan Haaretz that the men are & # 39; serious, with jobs & # 39 ;.
& # 39; They are not 17-year-old boys, they did not come to Hersonissos to find a woman and rape her, & # 39; she added.
She said the German woman contacted the police 24 hours after the event, and added that the charge & # 39; completely defamation & # 39; is.
According to JPost, the police report said the woman met the two men in a club and they raped her while the three of them were staying in a hotel room.
Golan said she will present the evidence on Tuesday and & # 39; I hope the court accepts it & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Nothing happened, period, & # 39; she added.
The news comes after a British tourist accusing 12 Israeli men of rape was released on bail after claiming to have made false claims of rape.
She gave her passport to the authorities and is not allowed to leave the country. Her trial begins on October 2.
Six weeks ago, she reported the alleged crime to the police and said that according to a report, she had to sign a confession made up by them.
The 19-year-old woman did not get a lawyer and had to sign the statement after she had been kept at the police station for eight hours.
She told the police that a dozen teenagers were holding her before they in turn attacked her sexually in Ayia Napa.
After her confession, they were released and returned to Israel for a champagne celebration of heroes after she allegedly changed her story.

She could be sentenced to one year in prison if she was found guilty of making up the allegations against the 12 Israelis between the ages of 15 and 18.
But it is thought that the police threatened to arrest her friends if she did not withdraw her complaint.
Michael Polak, a British lawyer representing the teenager, said: “The confession was obtained repression given the threats that were made.
& # 39; She was not warned and did not have access to a lawyer, such as her right under the European Convention on Human Rights.
& # 39; Furthermore, the teenager was not told that she could leave the police station, nor was she given the opportunity to leave at any time. & # 39;
He said to The Sun: & # 39; It is also known that, unfortunately, none of the proceedings were registered at the Cypriot police station. & # 39; Interviews must be legally recorded in the UK.

The woman also sent minutes to her friends minutes before she was charged at 2.30 am and claimed that the police would not let her talk to anyone.
She wrote: & # 39; It's crazy. They didn't let me talk to anyone.
& # 39; I said I have the right to have a lawyer here. Not in Cyprus, maybe the UK not in Cyprus.
& # 39; They really made me sign a fake … & # 39; Other messages to her friends were: & # 39; Bad things with the police.
& # 39; They think it is a conspiracy and they threatened with an international arrest warrant to arrest you all for it. & # 39;
A friend replied: & # 39; WTF. What the hell. & # 39;
The Israeli teenagers, who were on vacation before embarking on national service, all denied rape while three said they had had drunk consensual sex with her in a hotel.
It is believed that she had had a holiday party with one or more teenagers before the allegations were made.
The woman could now be confronted with civil action from some of the former suspects who are each planning to sue for damages in excess of £ 50,000.
Police reports from The Sun also state that medical investigations of two Israelis & # 39; s & # 39; suspect scratches & # 39; and have found bruises on their back and chest.
The rape case has thrown a dark cloud from the Ayia Napa tourist industry, where young people attracted by cheap flights, drinks and accommodation take down their heads every year
They claimed they had been attacked by the woman's girlfriends by the hotel manager and denied that such a fight was taking place.
The reports also contain details about one of the Israeli youth who is changing his story.
It comes days after the woman's legal team claimed she was the victim of & # 39; revenge porn & # 39; after the youngsters had sent friends a video about her drunken sex that has since become viral.
According to Israeli sources, the video was widely shared on WhatsApp, social media and even on porn sites after one or more young people had sent it to friends.
It is also assumed that the images show that the group makes derogatory comments about the woman in Hebrew during the meeting.
A source said: & # 39; The video is everywhere. In it you can hear one of the boys say in Hebrew: "You are my whore – say you are my whore".
& # 39; She doesn't understand and asks what they say and one of them answers in English & # 39; We say you are sexy & # 39 ;. It's not that nice. It is not how men should act. Many people in Israel are starting to question their behavior. & # 39;
The case was postponed until August 7 for a plea, after the defense had requested more time to review evidence including the video.
