Both testified Monday before Justice Fred Kovach at Saskatchewan Court of Queen's Bench, with Nikdima denying he did anything against her will and that she instigated having sex.The complainant, however, told Kovach that she felt terrified and still suffers daily flashbacks. I remember saying no," testified the woman, who is not being identified because of a publication ban.Senior Crown prosecutor Randene Zielke objected, saying Nychuk's questions were contributing to the "rape myth" — prejudicial or false beliefs about sexual assault victims that prove to undermine their credibility. Nychuk also pursued questions about the woman's weight — that she was 70 pounds heavier than the accused — and the style of her scream.Nychuk asked the woman why she didn't cry while she answered RCMP questions on recorded video. However, she told the court, "I was in shock and I don't think I could cry." Nychuk asked about how many times she said no to the accused and why she didn't fight. In the police interview, the woman was asked to re-enact her scream.
He insisted the woman instigated everything, including the walk outside the city, then oral, vaginal and anal sex inside the vehicle.Nychuk suggested it could have been misinterpreted as a "pleasure scream." She replied, "I can't imagine anyone thinking that." On Monday afternoon, the accused testified in his own defence.Nikdima was born in Albania and spent most of his adult years in Greece before immigrating to Canada in 2013.The trial is in Saskatchewan Court of Queen's Bench.(Gioulian Nikdima/Instagram) Gioulian Nikdima, 49, has been charged with sexual assault causing bodily harm.A police officer attended at the hospital, but decided not to take her statement back at the station that evening because it was late and snowing. I couldn't push away, I couldn't speak," the woman said. " The woman replied, "I was just trying to survive." Nychuk also asked the woman why she didn't immediately call police.She gave a videotaped statement to RCMP at White Butte detachment after the officer was back on shift, on Wednesday, March 23. A bit later, the defence lawyer said, "You could have just laid back, true? "If it was so horrific, why didn't you phone the police that day?' And I said, ' No, just can you take me to your car, and, like, this is too fast, this is not what I'm looking for.'" She said he replied, "' It's OK, it's OK.'" The woman testified that she did not feel safe. But the door wouldn't open, she testified, and she lost her escape route. I was scared to fight, because he was stronger than I am. "All I could think of is, ' Dear God, it's going to be over soon.'" Afterward, she said, he handed her a tissue and told her to clean herself.From there, she described how he yanked off her pants and forcibly penetrated her vaginally, pushed her face down to perform oral sex, then penetrated her anally. She said he opened his sunroof and had a smile on his face.He apologized for being graphic, but told the court, "She was so horny." He said the woman forced him to go faster and screamed, "F--k me, f--k me, f--k me." Nikdima said that when police arrested him at his home, he had no idea what it was about and willingly gave a statement to RCMP, despite his lawyer's advice not to, because he had nothing to hide.The accused said he received a phone call from his beautiful ex-wife at the end of the date, and that the woman on the date may have been angry and jealous. The woman told the court she cries every day, can't trust people, and continues to blame herself that she "put myself in a position to get raped." "I don't know how to be me anymore."
