The policewoman was drugged by her two colleagues after dinner at the end of their workday
“I love my job, but I’m fed up, I don’t want to wear the uniform anymore. My colleagues drugged and raped me, they videotaped it… after that, what would keep me here?” says Katalin Zsiga, according to Blikk.hu.
“All I can remember is that after the shift was over, we had dinner. I had a headache, so I went to sleep in the boarding house where we were accommodated. I’m not really a social person, I don’t go to parties, I don’t drink alcohol, which the others knew. I was feeling even worse in the morning, still having a headache, and I had stomach cramps. I also fainted on the way back from the border.”
Even though she was not feeling well, she did not go to the doctor at the time.
“One day, I was in charge of guarding the barracks, and one former colleague, who is now working for the Republican Guard Regiment, called me. He said that I needed to know something, that a video was circulating about me, showing two of my colleagues, a staff sergeant and a chief sergeant, raping me. I didn’t want to believe it, but then I saw it,” said Zsiga.
The sergeant claims one of the rapists confessed his actions but also said that “it all happened because the woman did not give in.” Katalin also claims that her colleague threatened her in case she dared to talk about what had happened, but she wrote a report to her commander describing not only the rape and the video but also the threat.
Zsiga lodged a complaint at the Debrecen Regional Prosecution Office a few days ago, but her case was taken over by the Szeged Regional Prosecution Office, which is closer to the scene of the crime.
The National Police Headquarters promised to provide all possible support for the investigation.
