The “young men” were as many as nine and made the 14 year old girl drunk. Then at least five of them raped the girl several times, others watched and recorded. The trial was started slowly before the Düsseldorf Chamber for the Protection of Minors because of the Syrian migration background of the accused. However, this case should not be confused with the one in Freiburg. There, eleven “men” – most of them Syrians – are said to have raped an 18-year-old woman for hours. One of the defendants was already released at yesterday’s trial.
The video shows a totally drunk 14-year-old girl. Again and again several men grab and sexually abuse her defenseless victim. Others are standing around watching. The screams “Stop it! No! are drowned out by the laughter of the men.This is the record of a gang rape committed in November 2017, after nine “young men” between the ages of 16 and 21, some of whom were known to the police, made the 14-year-old schoolgirl drunk with vodka at the time of the crime, then kidnapped her to a cellar room,where they spent hours sexually abusing the defenseless girl. “We had this planned,” a 16-year-old defendant, whose parents’ house is said to have been the scene of the crime, confessed in court on Wednesday.After the crime, the “youths” took the girl to a park and called the emergency doctor. The girl came to the hospital, but had no memory. The case only became known when the videos came to the police months later, the tabloid Bild reported. What the newspaper did not report to its readers, however, did the newspaper Westfalen-Blatt: All nine defendants are poorly German-speaking men with a Syrian migration background. The public hearing will continue on Thursday, September 26 at 11 a.m. in Room 1.In the case of this gang rape, the Bielefeld police are suspected of having kept the crime hidden for months. According to the newspaper Neue Westfälische, the crime took place on the 3rd of November 2017, but was made public by the police just in June 2018. A PI-News report forced the police to disclose the case to the public. The authorities justified their action at that time with the “protection of the minor victim”.
Eleven men are on trial. On October 14, 2018, they allegedly drugged an 18-year-old woman and raped her several times in a bush for hours. According to police, eight of the suspects come from Syria (18 to 29 years old), one is “German” (25 years old) and one is Algerian (18 years old). On Wednesday, the trial concerning the alleged gang rape began before the Freiburg Regional Court.A defendant, 25-year-old Syrian Kosay Al M., was released yesterday with immediate effect. The “refugee” had admitted to having been in the bushes at the time of the crime, but had not raped. Because M. could not be proven to have committed the crime by DNA analysis, he was dismissed by the presiding judge Stefan Bürgelin with the words “You are a free man”. However, the 25-year-old remains a defendant on suspicion of failure to render assistance. According to the tabloid Bild, M. left the courtroom smiling and with a wink in the direction of the other accused.Two other defendants are also likely to be free again in the near future: The public prosecutor’s office agreed to the applications for release of two further accused persons. The trial will continue. According to the court, there is no date yet for sentencing.
