Chef accused of rape says internet girl 'loved having sex with me'

A CHEF denying rape told a jury yesterday his alleged victim willingly had sex with him after arranging to stay with him through an internet hospitality website.

Abdelali Nachet, a Moroccan, said his visitor from Hong Kong had enjoyed the experience and he had not forced her do anything against her will.

He told Leeds Crown Court she was the first to stay with him as a result of his signing up with counchsurfing.com.

The 34-year-old said he was visiting family in Morocco and had met a Japanese man who told him about the site and recommended it. "He liked travelling the world and he showed me it on the internet saying he had travelled all over using it."

Nachet said he liked travelling and meeting people "and getting connected to the world." He registered himself on the site and when he returned to Leeds gave his details to about 100 people who wanted to visit the city.

The woman from Hong Kong "was the first person to stay with me," he said.

The prosecution claim he attacked her and subjected her to a "degrading and humiliating ordeal". Nachet, of Cranmer Bank, Moortown, Leeds denies two charges of rape and one of sexually assault on March 6.

He told the jury after she arrived by bus he had taken her to his flat and showed her round. He then made her a meal and they were talking about her travels in Europe. She showed him her camera and photographs.

He said he put the radio on and began dancing and she joined him. They were dancing close and she began stroking his neck.

She began talking about how much she liked England and he offered to marry her so she could stay in the country. He told the jury that in Morocco people could meet and marry very quickly.

She was smiling and happy and he brought a mattress into the living room and they went on to have sex.

"She like it, she loved it. She loved having sex with me," Nachet said.

Afterwards, he said they chatted and he went to his room to sleep at about 6am. The next morning she woke him because she wanted to go out and eventually they went to Alwoodley Park.

She asked to borrow money to visit York and she was not happy when he refused and was putting pressure on him, mentioning marriage.

It was then he told her to leave him alone and when they got back to the flat she took her bags and left.

The trial continues.
