A court in Freiburg is due to deliver its verdict in the case of an asylum seeker who has admitted to raping and murdering a student in Germany in 2016. Hussein K, thought to be from Afghanistan, came to the country without papers in November 2015.
The trial of Ali B., accused of raping and killing a teenage girl, has commenced under tight security. The defendant has confessed to the murder but has denied the rape charge.
In an interview with DW, Mukhtaran Mai, a 2002 gang rape survivor, said that her struggle for justice is not only for her but for all Pakistani women. She is appealing a court decision that acquitted the rapists.
Iraqi national Ali B. is on trial for the murder of 14-year-old Susanna F. The case has fueled a broader debate about asylum practices in Germany, particularly for individuals who have committed crimes.
Hussein K., who sought asylum in Germany, has received a life sentence for a crime that made international headlines. He had previously been convicted of assaulting a woman in Greece, but was released from prison early.
