With a Greek translator at his side, he told the court, "My English is not good." Nikdima gave a dramatically different version of the date than the woman.
He insisted the woman instigated everything, including the walk outside the city, then oral, vaginal and anal sex inside the vehicle.
A 48-year-old Regina woman testifies what started as a coffee date with a charming gentleman ended with him driving her outside city limits and raping her.
She also logged into other dating apps and discovered two other accounts with his picture, Gioulian69 and johny_ni. The woman told the court that tracking his digital footprint made her feel safer, but she was also worried "he was still out there, and might hurt someone else." During cross-examination, Nikdima's lawyer, Barry Nychuk, tried to poke holes in the woman's testimony. "It is our opinion that it is based on myths and stereotypes of how victims of sexual assault behave," Zielke said.
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.
