AN IRAQI asylum seeker who confessed to raping a 10-year-old boy in a swimming pool, claiming it was a “sexual emergency”, has had his conviction overturned ORDER15 learns.

One thing you often hear from the general public in regards to their apathy and lack of political involvement in issues they say they are concerned about is that they firmly believe that the ”masses” will rise up in some almighty revolution and take down the government and take back the country. However recent events around the world beg the question how bad do things have to get for this uprising to materialise. This is one of those such events which have hardly caused a stir in the minds of men.

A man who was convicted of raping a child at an Austrian pool has had his sentence overturned
In a truly shocking twist the Supreme Court decided the grown Iraqi man may not have realised the 10-year-old did not want to be sexually abused by him.

Amir A, 20, was visiting the Theresienbad pool in the Austrian capital of Vienna last December as part of a trip to encourage integration.

When the youngster went to the showers, Amir A. allegedly followed him, pushed him into a toilet cubicle, and violently sexually assaulted him.

Following the attack, the accused rapist returned to the pool and was practising on the diving board when police arrived, after the 10-year-old raised the alarm with the lifeguard.

The child suffered severe anal injuries which had to be treated at a local children’s hospital, and is still plagued by serious post-traumatic stress disorder.

In a police interview, Amir A. confessed to the crime; telling officers the incident had been “a sexual emergency”, as his wife had remained in Iraq and he “had not had sex in four months”.

The case sparked outrage across Europe and played a part in the rise of anti-immigration groups

A court found Amir guilty of serious sexual assault and rape of a minor, and sentenced him to six years in jail.

However, in a bizarre twist, the Supreme Court yesterday overturned the conviction, accepting the defence lawyer’s claim that the original court had not done enough to ascertain whether or not the rapist realised the child was saying no.

According to the Supreme Court President Thomas Philipp, while the verdict was “watertight” with regard to the serious sexual assault of a minor, there was not enough evidence to support the second charge of rape.

The appeal court said the initial ruling should have dealt with whether the offender thought that the victim had agreed with the sexual act, or whether he had intended to act against his will.

The sentence was therefore lifted, although Amir is expected to remain in custody until the rape case returns to the regional court next year.

  1. So, a child has to say no for it to be rape? Why don’t we change the rape culture from “well if I didn’t hear a no it is ok to assume it’s a yes” to “1. Are they of appropriate age (over 18!)
    2. Safe and sober
    3. sane (mentally aware of their choices and the consequences) and
    4. consenting (intentionally saying yes)?”

    Never should a child be assumed to be any of the above, they are children. Children shouldn’t have to say “no” because they are children and shouldn’t be in that poisition….

    And a sexual emergency?! No such thing. 4 months or 40 or 400 or 4 million, not an excuse to rape someone of any age.

  2. The lawyer defending the 20y-o who is bending the truth should be thrown in jail with the pervertwd rapist for a decade. That poor little boy. Parents, watch your kids like a hawk!
