Is rape in Germany just a trivial offense? The impression is obvious. Last Friday, a Syrian in Osnabrück who raped a 15-year-old girl got away with a suspended sentence. The reasoning of the judge: The man would be well on the way to becoming a normal citizen.
The crime happened in the summer of 2022. In the early morning of July 10, the 15-year-old was on her way to her boyfriend, the Syrian, on her way home after going to a disco. Perpetrators and victims met in Möserstrasse. The 30-year-old asked the teenager for a cigarette, while he smoked it he talked to her as far as his language skills allowed. Then the man pushed his victim against a wall “and didn’t stop fumbling with her as she fled into a stairwell,” the judge said in his verdict. Finally, he raped the 15-year-old using force.
During the hearing, it also emerged that the Syrian had given the girl a sachet containing half a gram of cannabis during the meeting.
The verdict was justified by the fact that the accused had been disinhibited due to alcohol and had not had a significant criminal record. In addition, from a legal point of view, the intensity of the rape was “at the lower end”, which means that there was no sexual intercourse. Criminal law stipulates that some other sexual acts are also legally considered rape if they are carried out against the will of the person concerned. It was also emphasized that the perpetrator was remorseful and “fully confessed”, which saved the victim from having to testify. Another aspect for the judge was that the Syrian has an apartment and will soon have a job. His conclusion: “You are well on the way to becoming a completely normal citizen here.”
Ultimately, the man, who came to Germany from Syria in 2015, was sentenced to a three-year suspended sentence with conditions for raping a minor and supplying narcotics. He is not allowed to approach his victim more than 50 meters and has to move away immediately if he sees the youngster anywhere. Furthermore, he has to pay a compensation of 3000 euros. This means that the 15-year-old has more from the suspended sentence than from being in prison, because the perpetrator can work and pay the compensation that she would otherwise not receive, according to the argument of the chairman Michael Hune.
In view of the fact that Hune had initially stated in the grounds for the judgment that the court had to crack down on general prevention if a 15-year-old girl was raped in broad daylight in the middle of Osnabrück, this judgment is probably incomprehensible. His statement: “I think we all want to live in a city where you don’t have to fear anything like that,” he has taken ad absurdum. A suspended sentence is unlikely to serve as a deterrent and will not help prevent such acts in the future. The impression that in this country, especially in the case of migrants, the protection of perpetrators takes precedence over the protection of victims is once again confirmed by this cuddly judgment. A public discourse on the subject of migrant crime is long overdue, but not in the interests of the left-wing government, which is continuing to push immigration – it can’t be what shouldn’t be…
