A 33-year-old Iraqi national has appeared before a criminal court in Germany to face charges of raping a 90-year-old disabled widow in the emergency room toilet of a local hospital.
The prosecutor in the trial at the criminal court in Dresden, Saxony accused Iraqi father, Munthar Al L, of “rape with intentional bodily harm”, after he allegedly attacked the elderly woman who had arrived at the emergency room of the hospital in Dresden-Friedrichstadt from the retirement home where she lived to have an X-ray following a fall.
In a recorded video testimony, the 90-year-old victim, known as Lili F, recounted how she had wanted to use the toilet whilst waiting for the X-ray, however upon entering the room she was approached by the man.
“Suddenly someone pushed the wheelchair at the door and sat me in the toilet,” she told the court.
“At first I thought it was a nurse. But when he wordlessly rubbed his hands between my legs and touched my chest, I got scared,” the elderly victim added.
The perpetrator, who lives in Dresden, in the outskirts of Gorbitz, with his 9-year-old daughter and his wife who is suffering from kidney disease, disputes the victim’s account, insisting: “She is lying. I wanted to help. I only took her to the toilet.”
Since the migration crisis in the summer of 2015, when then-German Chancellor Angela Merkel opened Europe’s borders to refugees from the Middle East, security has been a subject of debate in Germany.
On New Year’s Eve in 2016, sexual assaults were committed en masse by new arrivals from northern Africa and the Middle East, in Cologne, next to the cathedral, and in Hamburg, in the Sankt Pauli district.
Some migrants even go to other EU member states and commit crimes there. On New Year’s Eve 2022, an Afghan living in Germany traveled to Karlovy Vary, Czechia. There he stabbed a woman in the stomach and chest and raped another woman after attacking her with a knife and knocking her unconscious.
The new German government coalition, made up of the Social Democrats, Greens and the liberal FDP, has given no intention that it plans to rein in immigration, because all of them are fundamentally in favor of the continuation of mass immigration and the influx of much-needed labor, allowing German products to be competitive on the international market.
