Victim now testifies in gang rape trial

After the gang rape of an 18-year-old girl outside a disco in freiburg, the victim of the crime testified in court. The public was excluded from the questioning of the woman on wednesday before the regional court in freiburg.

In addition, at the request of the 18-year-old’s lawyer, the testimony was transmitted to the courtroom via video technology. The young woman essentially confirmed the accusations made by the prosecution against the man, prosecutor thorsten krapp told the deutsche presse-agentur on the sidelines of the trial. She had appeared "very tense, but at the same time very composed".

She had answered the court’s questions "reflectively and without any eagerness to incriminate". In addition, she told me about the night of the crime. "She was anxious to answer questions fully."There were no surprises, said the prosecutor. The contents were largely consistent with the indictment.

Eleven men aged 18 to 30 are accused in the criminal trial, most of them refugees. They are accused of raping the 18-year-old in mid-october last year at night in freiburg after a disco visit in a bush in front of the disco. They deny this.

According to her defenders, the woman had demanded sex, but there had been no violence. In addition, the 18-year-old had taken drugs before the crime and could not remember much about it. According to the indictment, she was helpless and defenseless after taking an ecstasy tablet.

The court had ordered a non-public hearing of the woman in the morning. The presiding judge stefan burgelin cited the protection of her personal rights as the reason for the hearing. The young woman should be spared a meeting with the eleven accused. According to a psychiatric expert, there was a risk of psychological damage. The woman was therefore "from another place" by video switched on.

This approach makes sense, the prosecutor said. Still, he said, it was a stressful situation. "There can be no relaxed interrogation situation with this allegation and the sexual details that come up," he said.

The 18-year-old is a defendant in the trial that began in freiburg at the end of june. She is represented in court by a lawyer. She did not want to make a public statement when asked on wednesday. In the course of the trial so far, she had stated that her client was still suffering from the crime today. According to the court, the 18-year-old was assisted as a witness by the representative of a victim protection organization.

The trial continues. The next monday (29. July), according to the court, four visitors to the disco and a neighboring club are to be heard as witnesses. Trial days are scheduled until the end of december. According to the court, there is not yet a date for a possible verdict (az. 6 kls 181 js 1138/19 ak 2/19 and 6 kls 181 js 35640/18 ak 3/19).
