One year ago, after a long period of observation, a special police unit in Heidenau stopped the silver Mercedes S-class (price of the car approx. 90000 € ) of the drug dealer Ayham I. (24 years old) carrying two kilos of marijuana on board. He had previously bought it in Leipzig.
On Friday the unskilled Syrian, who came to Germany as a refugee in 2015, was brought before the Dresden Regional Court.
The public prosecutor accuses the man of at least 28 crimes. He is alleged to have sold kilos of mainly cannabis.
In Pirna, Heidenau and Dresden he is said to have been assisted by young women who even offered the drugs at the Goethe High School in Pirna.
Ayham I is alleged to have sold narcotics to a 15-year-old boy. He is said to have brutally collected outstanding debts with an iron bar and a switchblade.
Presiding judge Joachim Kubista (56 years old): “For such serious offences the minimum sentence is five years. Do you confess?”
But the accused, who was given the money for the driving school by German Red Cross workers and who initially delivered medicines for pharmacies, remains silent. On ten days of the trial, 50 witnesses will now be heard.
