Austria crime immigration


This case came to public attention as a rumor. It was confirmed by police as a result of the country’s nationalist party being prepared to ask question in parliament about it. How many more similar rumors would be confirmed if countries such as the UK had nationalist parties in Parliament that were prepared to challenge the establishment?

The Old Continent:

For weeks the rumour did the rounds that something awful had happened to a girl in the Austrian town of Tulln. No information was forthcoming, but the rumour was real enough for the Freedom Party of Austria (FPÖ) to announce it was preparing to ask questions in parliament. Since yesterday, however, the police have started giving out more information on the case – it claims this is because the police investigation now allows it.

The rumours were true.

Police have now confirmed that a fifteen-year-old girl, while on her way home, was dragged into the bushes and raped twice. Twice, because she managed to escape, but the suspects pursued her and raped her again. The girl reports that two men held her down, with one closing her mouth. It was only the next day she was able to tell a family member what had happened, and was subsequently taken to the hospital. According to the regional police force, the perpetrators are asylum seekers.
