Terrorism: 14 years in prison for IS returnees

She allowed a little Yazidi girl to die of thirst in agony – now the Higher Regional Court in Munich has pronounced the verdict against the IS returnee.

Around eight years after the death of a Yazidi girl from thirst, an Islamist extremist in Munich has been sentenced to 14 years in prison for crimes against humanity. The Higher Regional Court (OLG) in Munich charged her with enslavement resulting in death on Tuesday and accused her of having acted out of contempt for human beings.

The woman from Lohne in Lower Saxony had previously confessed to having watched in her house in Iraq in the summer of 2015 as a girl enslaved by her and her then husband died. The man had previously chained the child in the blazing midday sun to punish it.

The 9th Criminal Senate made the decision in the retrial after the Federal Court of Justice (BGH) had referred back an earlier OLG judgment in the course of an appeal to a new decision on the sentence. Unlike the 8th Criminal Senate in the earlier decision of October 2021, the court no longer assumed a less serious case.

Among other things, the Senate criticized the behavior of the now 32-year-old woman after the death of the child. She held a gun to her mother’s head to force her to stop crying. The Senate also rated the serious psychological consequences from which the girl’s mother is suffering to this day as an aggravating sentence.
