Gang rape of a drugged 13 year old who dies at the end of the ordeal. For the Austrian judiciary no reason for a murder charge against the Afghan trio (16,18,22,23). Only the sexual harassment of the student from Tulln is dealt with. If one can believe the media reporting, which is largely uniform from Standard to today, no negligent killing or failure to provide assistance is discussed.
The 13-year-old partyed on June 25 with three Afghan men dubbed “refugees.” The next day she was found dead – she was leaning against a tree on a green strip in the city of Vienna.
The spokeswoman for the public prosecutor’s office, Nina Bussek, announced to the public that the three suspects had to answer on suspicion of rape and serious sexual abuse. Not a word of murder, manslaughter or failure to provide assistance. Not a word about substance abuse. The question that arises for the legal layperson is: why?
During the “party” the Afghans drugged the young schoolgirl, she received an overdose of ecstasy, and other drugs may have been involved. At least two of those present sexually assaulted their defenseless victim. When the girl passed out, they tried to feed him milk and yogurt. In vain, she died. The corpse was wrapped in a carpet and taken to the location mentioned above. Instead of calling an ambulance in time, their deaths were accepted and they were thrown away like garbage.
The proceedings are eagerly awaited. It is to be expected that the defense will argue that these are poor, traumatized refugees who are now well integrated in Austria and whose lives should not be thrown off course by a harsh judge’s verdict. The fact that the 13-year-old Austrian Leonie died as a result of her work is little more than a footnote. Because “only” the rape of a minor is negotiated.
