Woman convicted of beating her husband for several days in a hotel whilst on holiday
A female Polish tourist has been charged by the Court of San Bartolomé de Tirajana for continually beating her husband while they were on holiday at a hotel in Playa del Inglés in Gran Canaria. At first she didn’t want to collaborate with the National Police who confronted her at the hotel, but she admitted the facts in court and has been sentenced to two months in prison and is prohibited to have any contact with her husband for any reason for a period of one year.
The incident was uncovered because hotel staff where the couple were staying called the police because one of their clients, a 34-year-old female, had a very violent attitude towards her 56-year-old German husband, and had attacked him.
When they arrived at the hotel, officers collected several statements from staff that detailed how the woman had been continuously physically and verbally assaulting her husband. While the woman in question, called Anna Bárbara Mytych was in the reception with her suitcases, the police went up to the room they were staying in and found her husband with a black eye and numerous bruises on his face.
He stated that the injuries were caused by repeated blows to the head from his wife, and that she had "beaten him for several days for no reason”, and that he had “not opposed her or offered resistance by fighting back”, as he said he would never hit a woman.
After being charged by the police, Mytych was passed to the judicial authorities, where she was convicted for a crime of “abuse in the family environment.”
