ALTE VIOLURI ÎN GERMANIA. Un refugiat irakian a fost arestat în Germania, fiind acuzat de viol. Reținerea sa, la câteva zile după un caz similar cel cu tânără de 19 ani violată şi înecată în râu de un migrant afgan
Un migrant irakian suspectat de viol a fost reținut de poliția germană, la doar câteva zile după ce un refugiat afgan a fost arestat într-un caz separat de viol, relatează Reuters - preluată de Libertatea.ro.
Cele două cazuri ar putea să realimenteze sentimentele antiimigranți ale germanilor, dar și să aibă un impact politic, relatează Reuters.
Irakianul de 31 de ani a fost reţinut centrul pentru refugiaţi unde era cazat. El este suspectat că a violat o studentă chineză și a încercat să violeze o altă tânără, într-un oraș din vestul Germaniei. Atacurile au avut loc pe 6 august şi 16 noiembrie.
Procurorii verifică dacă irakianul a comis și alte astfel de fapte.
Arestarea irakianului vine la doar câteva zile după ce un afgan de 17 ani a fost arestat, fiind suspectat că a violat şi ucis o student germană de 19 ani, care se întorcea acasă de la o petrecere.
Cele două cazuri riscă să alimenteze sentimentul antiimigranţi din Germania, țară care a primit aproape un milion de migranţi din Orientul Mijlociu, Africa şi din alte ţări din afara UE.
Cancelarul german Merkel, a fost criticata adesea pentru politica sa privind imigranții.
DW - Iraqi migrant detained on suspected rape charges in Bochum
A 31-year-old Iraqi migrant has been detained in north west Germany on suspicion of carrying out two sexual attacks in Bochum. He was arrested at a refugee hostel.
The two attacks - both on Chinese students - happened in Bochum in August and in November. Police said on Tuesday that the man, who can not be named for legal reasons, was arrested at his refugee hostel on Monday.
The first attack was carried out on a 21-year-old Chinese student in the university district of Bochum on August 6. The victim was seriously injured. The second attack was the rape of a 27-year-old Chinese student on November 16, a police official told reporters. DNA tests showed the two attacks were carried out by the same individual. Both victims were dragged into a bush where the attacker forced himself on the women.
The accused was tracked down after a witness noticed him in the university district and took photographs, which he then gave to police. These were used to identify him and the DNA tests were taken. Police are investigating if he may have committed other crimes.
The Iraqi man lives in the Bochum hostel near the university with his wife and two children, according to Chief Prosecutor Andreas Bachmann. He arrived in Germany with his family in December 2015.
The man is to be charged with attempted murder, rape and grievous bodily harm. He denies the accusations.
The arrest comes just days after a 17-year-old Afghan man was detained on Friday on suspicion of raping and murdering a 19-year-old German student as she cycled home from a party in the southwestern city of Freiburg.
It also comes as Germany marks the anniversary of the hundreds of attacks on women in Cologne on New Year's Eve by men of North African and Arab appearance.
Speaking on ARD television on Monday night, Chancellor Angela Merkel was asked about the Freiburg case and she said it was important to not target refugees as a group: "That was a terrible murder and, if it turns out that it was an Afghan refugee, then that is to be condemned, just as is the case with any other murderer," Merkel said. "But then I say that this can't lead to the rejection of an entire group, just as we don't draw conclusions about an entire group from one person in other circumstances," she added.
