Surveillance video showed him kicking cleaner, in her 60s, in the face
A Swedish man on holiday in Bulgaria who kicked a hotel maid unconscious, an act that was caught on camera, has been convicted of assault and fined heavily.
A surveillance video emerged this summer of the 53-year-old kicking a cleaner, who is in her 60s, in the face as she scrubbed a hotel floor in the popular resort town of Sunny Beach.
The cleaner, who suffered concussion, said later that the man had kicked her “like a football” and that she was in shock. The tourist was arrested and claimed he could not remember the incident because he was too drunk at the time.
A judge convicted the man of assault and fined him 4,500 lev (€2,300), also ordering him to pay the 600 lev costs of the case. The cleaner is also seeking 50,000 lev (€25,600) in damages, which the court has yet to decide on.
Local media reports said the judge explained that the man had tried to use the effects of alcohol to mask what he had done, and that he had shown an “absolute lack of humanity”.
