Chloe Ayling’s kidnapper Lukasz Herba JAILED for 16 years and told to pay her £60,000 after being found guilty of abducting Brit model for ransom.
Chloe Ayling was said to have been drugged and kidnapped in Milan after arriving for a modelling job in July 2017.
She was then held for nearly a week at a farmhouse in Piedmont, a neighbouring region, before she was released to the British consulate in Milan.
Lukasz Herba, 30, who was jailed for 16 years and nine months by an Italian court on Monday, had claimed she went along with the kidnapping as a ruse to improve her career.
In court he said he had invented a group he presented as being behind deep-web auctions of women on encrypted sites.
In an interview last autumn Ms Ayling, then 20, defended having made money from television appearances and a book deal following her kidnapping.
“I am not with an agent, so I have to do something in the meantime,” she said on Good Morning Britain in October.
