Breaking news on In Brief reveals a case of sexual equality where a woman allegedly spiked two men’s drinks with Rohypnol and robbed them:
bq. Banker Volker Vogler met Hakki in the rooftop bar of Londons Park Lane Hilton. She went back to his home with him and literally stole the clothes off his back disappearing while he was unconscious with a £100 pair of black Versace jeans with £100 in the pocket, a Versace jumper, three pairs of shoes and an £850 Omega watch, as well as a Tiffany alarm clock and a bottle of red wine, according to the prosecution. Her second alleged victim, Alexander Jovy, also found items missing after going back to his flat with Hakki and falling unconscious, the court heard. The case continues.
The article says she ‘slipped them a Mickey Finn’ – good to see traditional terms preserved. The first time I heard of Rohypnol was a couple of years ago in court here in Germany, where the effects of the substance were described but the judge refused to name it for fear of encouraging others, apparently. I had to do some Internet searching before I got the name.
