A BRIT dad accused of raping his own daughter has been released after being cleared by DNA evidence, 報告されました.
Philip Forsythe, 62, was detained after his 33-year-old daughter Tammi said she was dragged from an alleyway and into a bush on Crete.
Tammi waived her right to anonymity to protest her dad’s innocence after he arrested and to say she feared she is pregnant after the attack.
Mr Forsythe has now been released after DNA tests on sperm found on her clothes found it was not his, an investigating judge in Heraklion told The Sun Online.
Police in Hersonissos, the nearest town to Malia where the incident had reportedly taken place, 前記 “justice had spoken”.

The mum-of-four had been in a bar with her dad and said the pair had been drinking heavily.
Tammi, who lives with her dad in Hull, explained they made their way back to their hotel about 5am but she stumbled into an alley and was too drunk to get up.
At around 7.15am, she saw a man standing over her.
“He grabbed me by my legs, dragged me into a bush and raped me,” she told The Mail Online.
“I was left stunned by the whole thing and after it happened, I could not move for about 15 minutes because I was too scared.”
She went back to the hotel and reported the attack to the British Consulate and then Greek police.
But now Tammi says she’s “60 per cent sure that I’m pregnant” after the horror attack.
“This holiday has turned into a horror movie," 彼女は言いました.
“I’m really suffering with stress and anxiety which has only got worse because I’m feeling a bit sick and have missed my period. I’m usually very regular and it’s not like me.
“I’ve been told by the British Consulate that I need to go to a medical clinic to have a blood test, but I’ve been suffering from such bad panic attacks that I need someone to accompany me.
“But I’m here on my own and have got nobody to help me.”
Tammi’s dad was arrested on June 11, two days after she was raped and he was held in jail awaiting the results of DNA tests.
She said officers “completely misunderstood” what she told them about what happened and her description of the attacker.
“I told them that my father was wearing all white, but they took that to mean that the attacker was wearing all white," 彼女は言いました.
She said she wants Greek police to focus on catching the real rapist while her dad is in a “terrible state psychologically”.
He also suffers from health problems, including diabetes, made worse during his time in prison.
“The police made up their minds from the start that my father was guilty and have not done anything about finding the real rapist," 彼女は言いました.
