Sounds like this haji is a model “New German.”
No way will the German government punish him with deportation after he’s served them so well.
A 22-year-old man confessed to strangling a teenage girl to death at the opening of his murder trial on Tuesday in the western German city of Wiesbaden, but denied that he had raped her beforehand.
The defendant, an Iraqi asylum seeker identified as Ali B., told the court that he killed the 14-year-old schoolgirl Susanna F. in May 2018.
“Everything went black and then it happened,” Ali B. said through an interpreter. “I don’t know how it could have happened.”
Ali B., who fled from Iraq with his family in 2015, also apologized to the parents of Susanna F., saying he knew that his “apology can’t make anything right again.”
A verdict in the trial is not expected until May. Ali B. faces life imprisonment if found guilty and could be deported back to Iraq, though he will likely serve half of a prison sentence in Germany. He also faces a separate trial from March 19 where he has been charged with twice raping an 11-year-old girl.
