Rachid B. and Abdullahi A Arrested for r*ping A Teenage girl twice in two different attacks just minutes apart on a hotel ship where she was staying after leaving Ukraine, a court heard.
Two males are in court accused of $exually abusing a girl Ukrainian refugee, 18, in two different incidents that occurred on a German hotel ship ten minutes apart.
The 18-year-old is suspected of being assaulted on board a river cruise ship in Düsseldorf, Germany, by Rachid B., 38, and Abdullahi A., 26. The Oscar Wilde, a ship docked on the Rhine and housing both paying guests and Ukrainian migrants, is where the alleged attacks took place. Rachid is said to have met the girl at dinner on the yacht on March 6 and then followed her back to her room.
He then allegedly forced open her door and $exually assaulted her, according to the indictment. The Ukrainian teen shouted as she attempted to defend herself “Stop! It’s not what I want! “According to the court record, A court heard that Abdullahi allegedly broke into the girl’s room and r*ped her as well ten minutes after Rachid left.
The two accused males are thought not to know one another, and there is no evidence suggesting they were working together, according to German authorities, even though the attacks happened quickly after one another.
Similar to their victim, Rachid and Abdullahi escaped Ukraine after the fighting started in February by traveling through Poland and into Germany. Both men were initially refugees from Tunisia and Nigeria and now hold Ukrainian citizenship. Abdullahi was training to be a computer engineer, while Rachid was learning to be a dentist.
Positive for COVID
On yesterday’s opening day of their trial, the men were not given the opportunity to speak. Both might be deported and would likely get a severe prison sentence if proven guilty. The victim was unable to appear in court after testing positive for Covid, according to German news site Bild. Since Putin began his offensive in February, around 6.5 million Ukrainians have escaped into the EU.
Around 900,000 people live in Germany, primarily women, children, and old people. A variety of crimes, including claimed $exual assaults, have victimized refugees. Police need to “act swiftly,” according to German MP Andrea Lindholz, and they should do more to “particularly assure the protection of Ukrainian women by examining lodging.”
“Politicians should now do everything to ensure that such awful cases of r*pe as on the Düsseldorf hotel boat do not accumulate,” a police spokesperson said. Such offenders only understand rapid, severe punishment followed by expulsion.
