Mühlhausen in Thüringen – Prozess um Gruppenvergewaltigung: “Jeder hat mich drei Mal vergewaltigt” https://t.co/7IPwbbVn9p
— FOCUS Online (@focusonline) June 20, 2017
On 27 August 2016 Laura G., a 28-year-old Hungarian living in Mühlhausen, Germany was violently gang-raped by three Eritreans. On her way home, she was grabbed by 23-year-old Isaac N. and told:”we’re going to have sex now.” Laura refused, but Isaac hit her in the face, knocking her to the ground. Nevertheless, she managed to get away from him, only to be intercepted by 29-year-old Medhanie A. and 22-year-old Dawit T.
The men dragged Laura under the viaduct, where all three took turns raping her. During her ordeal, Laura’s mouth was kept shut by the attackers “to prevent her from screaming”, as the prosecutor stated in court at the time. He further described the gang rape as ‘brutal’.
On Monday, 19 June 2017 Laura’s ordeal had finally made it to the courtroom for the trial and it was her turn to give a statement. Laura identified all three of the accused as the men who raped her, saying:
“Every one of them has assaulted me thrice“

People visiting a Vienna park have courageously stopped a particularly brazen sex assault against a 24-year-old woman yesterday on 22 June in broad daylight. Following a physical confrontation with the perpetrator of the attempted rape, the vigilantes even managed to capture him. The man, a 23-year-old asylum seeker from Afghanistan, was subsequently handed over to police.
- The case of Eric X. and his 23-year-old rape victim has exposed, once again, the systemic failure by German authorities to enforce the law and to ensure public safety: a failure to secure borders; a failure to vet incoming migrants; a failure to prosecute and imprison criminals; a failure to deport failed asylum seekers; and a failure by police to take seriously the migrant rape crisis engulfing Germany.
- Germany’s migrant sex-crime problem is being exacerbated by its lenient legal system, in which offenders receive relatively light sentences, even for serious crimes. In many instances, individuals who are arrested for sex crimes are released after questioning from police. This practice allows criminal suspects to continue committing crimes with virtual impunity.
- In Berlin, a court acquitted a 23-year-old Turkish man of rape because his victim could not prove that she did not give her consent. The court heard how the man shoved the woman’s head between the steel bars of the headboard of a bed and repeatedly violated her over a period of more than four hours. The woman cried “stop” and resisted by scratching the accused on the back, but at some point she stopped resisting. The court asked: “Could it be that the defendant thought you were in agreement?”
Two German police officers have been removed from their posts after they failed properly to provide emergency assistance to a woman who was raped by a migrant in Bonn.
The lack of attention by the police has added to the perception that German authorities are not taking seriously a rape crisis in which thousands of German women and children have been sexually assaulted since Chancellor Angela Merkel allowed in around two million migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
Swabs for wiping the lips, face, thighs, vagina and anus. A comb to collect fibers and hair. A pick for scraping debris from under fingernails. A blood sampling device and microscope slides. Baggies for underwear. Documentation forms and labels.
These are just some of the items in the standard sexual assault evidence collection kit, or rape kit, used by American hospitals and police departments. Sexual assault turns the victim’s body into a crime scene and the process of evidence gathering—prodding, swabbing and questioning—can take hours. Victims who subject themselves to this ordeal do so in the hope of justice and the hope that the perpetrator will be stopped from hurting anyone else. But over the last 30 years as many as 400,000 rape kits have piled up, untested, in back rooms and storage lockers across the country. Stacked together they would fill a warehouse the size of a football field and three stories tall.

Four Syrian asylum seekers were arrested by police in the German town of Löbau after they filmed and molested underage girls at a swimming pool.
Police arrested the group of Syrian asylum seekers at the Herrenmannsbad outdoor swimming pool on Friday. Two of the men, aged 31 and 27, are said to have filmed several underage girls at the facility against their permission and then tried to sexually touch them in the swimming pool, MDR reports.
Die Vergewaltigung eines 13-jährigen Mädchens am S-Bahnhof Jungfernstieg wird voraussichtlich nicht als Kindesmissbrauch bestraft. Gericht, Staatsanwaltschaft und Verteidigung gehen zum Prozessauftakt davon aus, dass der Angeklagte Ali D. nicht wusste, dass das Opfer keine 14 Jahre alt war.
Ali D. (29) hat ein Geständnis angekündigt. Demnach ist der Asylbewerber aus dem Irak derjenige, der in der Nacht zum 6. November 2016 eine 13-jährige Schülerin im S-Bahnhof Jungfernstieg gepackt, in einen Raum gezerrt und vergewaltigt hat. Das Mädchen war noch Jungfrau.
Die Staatsanwältin spricht von einer „Überfalltat in der Öffentlichkeit“. Die Vorsitzende Richterin hingegen nennt die Tat „schändlich, aber keinen Überfall“, da Opfer und Täter zuvor gemeinsam getrunken hätten.

Independent Swedish journalist Joakim Lamotte has claimed sexual abuse from newly arrived migrants is not only prevalent in schools but that victims are accused of being racist if they speak out.
Mr. Lamotte, who formerly worked as a journalist at Sweden’s state broadcaster SVT, has posted a video on his Facebook page describing a wave of sexual assaults committed by “newcomer” asylum seekers. He said when students or teachers attempt to talk about the problem they are called racists and nothing is done.
