Four defendants from Eritrea have since Tuesday before the district court in Dessau-Roßlau responsible for rape in a particularly serious case and dangerous bodily injury.
One of the four defendants has the joint heavy rape of a 56-year-old woman in Dessau in August last year now admitted in court, reports the "Central German newspaper" . However, the 19-year-old denied vehemently his own direct participation.
Another accused 22-year-old asserted word that he could remember nothing due to unfamiliar consumption of alcohol. Both suspects have one thing in common: they became involved in their interrogation in contradictions that make them doubt their credibility.
This was the interim result of the trial on Tuesday at the district court of Dessau-Roßlau, where the verdict is expected to be heard in Saxony-Anhalt for the first gang rape in Saxony-Anhalt until probably mid-April.
According to the negotiation plan, next week the two remaining members of the Eritrea Quartet will first be interviewed by the presiding judge, Siegrun Baumgarten.
This is a 21-year-old and another 19-year-old, also asylum seekers from the African country. As has been learned from investigator circles, they are considered "little willing to cooperate".
Already the first day of the negotiation gave an idea of what role a woman has for the defendants. The impression made by the statements had a shocking effect on the spectators in the hall.
The two defendants interviewed suggested that they were talking about sex and nothing else. The concerns of her victim played and do not matter.
