Weiden (dpa / lby) – Two Syrian men have had to answer in Weiden District Court for kidnapping since the end of June. According to a justice spokesperson, the verdict can be expected on Monday. Men are father and son, the victim is the son’s young wife.
The 48-year-old father is also accused of trafficking in foreigners. Besides the kidnapping, the prosecution also accuses the 22-year-old son of rape and dangerous bodily harm.
According to the indictment, the father had the woman brought to Germany via the Balkan route from Syria in the spring of 2018. She had previously been remotely married under Islamic law to her son, who lived in Upper. Palatinate. In early 2019, the woman had a child.
In marriage, there should have been arguments over and over again because the wife did not want to submit without contradiction. The husband raped and beat her according to reports. In addition, the father and son reportedly attempted to bring the 21-year-old girl back to Syria and thus separate her from their child.
