The details of this case only get worse from there.
We have heard about horrific stories that happened in Cologne, Germany on New Year’s Eve 2015.
This is a horror story from Vienna, Austria on New Year’s Eve 2015.
It’s just going to trial now.
All of the men, aged 22 to 45, were from the same family.
The were ‘asylum seekers’ that had arrived in Austria between May and December 2015.
The victim had been out celebrating New Year’s Eve with a female friend and had been drinking at a bar/restaurant.
At around 3 AM, the friend noticed that she was no longer there and asked the bartender if he had seen her. The bartender told her that the men she was talking to ‘took her away’.
Prosecutors charge the Iraqi men with “abuse of a defenceless person and rape in a very humiliating and agonising way for the victim.”
One of the men is alleged to have taken a selfie’ with the woman after her alleged ordeal…
…Most of them deny the charges but DNA proved that sperm from six of them was found in or on her body…
…Judge Petra Poschalko heard how the woman was taken by four of them to an apartment in Vienna’s Rustenschacher Allee where five other men were waiting.
The woman later said she found herself naked on a double bed being assaulted by the men one after the other.
Evidence as heard that said she was assaulted in the dark so she could not identify the men, according to her lawyer Karina Fehringer.
After the alleged attacks, which went on for several hours, the victim needed in-patient treatment at a trauma clinic.
She is now under psychiatric care for post traumatic stress disorder…
…Only one man, Mohamed Al-A., 31, admitted his role in the rapes and he sobbed in court and said he was “really drunk” on vodka at the time.
He was with co-defendants Nazar Al-J., Mohammed Al-T. und Alaa Al-J. in the Cactus bar who took the victim back to the apartment.
The other defendants – Hader Al-A., Mustafa Al-J., Nael Al-J., Marwan Al-J. und Sabah Al-J. – lay in wait for her there.
Medical experts testified she was raped multiple times and sodomised.
The victim said she yelled at them, in German: “No, I don’t want this.” Then in English: “Listen to me, just a little bit.”…
…The court heard that with the exception of the man who confessed, none of the others feel guilty.
Several denied rape in the face of the DNA evidence.
One man claimed that the woman had been “offered” to them by relatives: another that she was a willing participant in whatever took place.

A tracking app on the woman’s phone showed that the rape lasted from 4:20 AM to 6:20 AM on January 1, 2016.
All of the men had filed applications to stay in Austria.
Five had been approved to remain in Austria, the other four applications were still pending.
Each of the men are facing up to 15 years in prison if convicted.
Beyond just how sick and disturbing this story is, it also leaves one with some questions about the refugee application process in Austria.
How is it that 9 presumably able-bodied Iraqis between the ages of 22 and 45 were approved to stay?
There are literally millions of people fleeing their war-torn homelands.
Aren’t there women and children to worry about first?
One would think that able-bodied males are lower down on the list.
Everyone needs to be treated equally because to do otherwise is ‘misogynistic’.
If that is the case, then:
