An Iraqi refugee who raped a 10-year-old boy at a swimming pool, calling it a “sexual emergency,” has had his conviction overturned after a court in Austria concluded that the 20-year-old attacker may have been unaware the boy did not want to be abused.
Amir A, who had worked as a taxi driver in Iraq, dragged a 10-year-old schoolboy into the changing rooms, locked the door and violently sexually assaulted him.
He suffered severe internal injuries and was rushed to a children's hospital. He is still suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
The assailant, who came to Austria via the Balkans in September 2015, confessed to the rape, saying he had acted because of a “sexual emergency” as he had not had sex for four months. When asked if such actions were legal in his home country, he admitted he knew that “such acts were forbidden in any country of the world,”
In June, a court found Amir guilty of grave sexual assault and rape of a minor
But on Thursday, the Supreme Court overturned the verdict
The court ruled that... ...the written verdict on the conviction of rape cannot be sufficiently proved.
