British model denies kidnapping story was a hoax: lawyer

British model denies kidnapping story was a hoax: lawyerBy Sara Rossi MILAN (Reuters) – The lawyer for a 20-year-old British model at the center of an alleged kidnapping in Italy has denied suggestions that the case was a hoax, after local media raised doubts about her story. Some residents told state broadcaster Rai that the couple went to a bar and that she also went shoe shopping with Lukasz Pawel Herba, 30, a British resident born in Poland, before he released her to the British consulate in Milan. “The implication that she was involved (in the plot) – as I read with disgust in some newspapers this morning – is just unimaginable,” Milan-based lawyer Francesco Pesce told Reuters.
