Jailed for four years, girl who glassed friend’s face

A DUTCH girl, who smashed a glass into her friend’s face on a night out in Veronicas in September 2015, has finally been sentenced, to four years in prison.

The girl, who was also ordered to pay 34,000 euros in compensation, disfigured her pal’s face after a fight broke out between the holiday-makers, who were out partying in Las Americas.
The victim suffered serious injuries, including stab wounds to her face, back and arms, as well as broken teeth, and psychological stress, which she is still battling.

She spent 32 days in a critical condition in hospital, and, in total, 180 days to heal, physically. But she is still carrying visible, facial scars.
The court dates were suspended on three occasions, but the hearing finally went ahead with both girls giving her statements from Holland, where they live.

But the assailant, three years on, still denied that she had the fight with her best friend. However, the Court accepted the victim’s story, which, they believed, was credible.

Her account remained unchanged throughout the judicial process, although the accused said the friend was very drunk, and was out of her mind on that particular night, back in 2015.

At the time of the incident, there were no witnesses in the area and no operational CCTV cameras.
