Spanish media say the suspect has been released without charges after appearing before a court in Valencia, because the alleged incident took place in international waters and there was no jurisdiction over a person who did not reside in Spain.
The alleged victim is said to have been travelling on board the cruise liner with her parents.
On arrival in Valencia, the incident was reported to the ship’s captain who alerted the port authorities and then the police. The girl was later taken to hospital for a full examination.
