Daughter Sacrificed, Prize Won

More than two years ago the rape and murder of Maria Ladenburger in Freiburg made headlines for several months. Young Maria was killed by a culture-enricher named Hussein Khavari, who had previously been jailed for attempted murder in Greece, but was released early.

Master Khavari was able to game the system by coming to Europe without papers and claiming to be 17 years old. He remained 17 for at least three years after his arrival, right up to the moment he drowned Maria in the River Dreisam. He’s probably still 17 right now, as he languishes in prison, serving a life sentence. (I don’t know how long it’s likely to be before the German penal system releases him. “Life” in Norway means 21 years — up there in aurora country they have a short lifespan.)

Maria’s parents were (and presumably are) active in the welcome-refugees movement. The following essay discusses the recent awarding of a multicultural appreciation prize to the elder Ladenburgers.

Maria Ladenburger — Glorified as a blood-witness for a movement

Basically I’ve already stated my opinion about the behavior of murdered Maria Ladenburger’s parents. But when a few days ago I saw their grinning mugs, as they buoyantly held up straight into the camera a citizens’ award (Bürgerpreis) that was given to them by supporters of Merkel’s politics, I honestly felt sick to my stomach. It isn’t just the fact that they gained mighty financial capital — hundreds of thousands of euros — last year by naming a foundation after her. Rather, it is their ecstatic (verzückt) smile for the cameras as they were rewarded for their multicultural attitude towards citizenship. Parents of a girl who was suffocated, raped and drowned by an invading Afghan citizen after he already committed a similar offense against a young woman in Greece who survived the ordeal.

And for the fact that they so virtuously took the death of their daughter instead of even just once uttering words of discontent that certain circumstances were not what God meant them to be, but were manmade and could have been prevented, which lead to Maria’s death, they were honored by the prominent leaders in the land. They received a prize for having faithfully toed the state’s political line, for not complaining, even though they had lost their daughter as a direct consequence of Merkel’s migration politics. Either they are dumb, or evil. If they cannot understand that there is a direct connection between Maria’s death in the riverbed, the Afghani, their civil reward, the chancellor’s office and those fateful hours of 2015, then they are probably just not very intelligent, yet I doubt that. But on the other hand, if they should understand all this and are still willing to swallow it all whole, to accept it, and to be rewarded in return with prizes and metaphorical medals, because they had so willingly given up their child, then one might rapidly come up with the observation that their behavior simply is schäbig (shabby, tacky, tawdry, sordid, sleazy).

Federike Ladenburger reminds me of Mariam Farahat, the woman who was voted into the Palestinian parliament in 2006. Umm Nidal, the “mother of martyrs” as she was called, sacrificed three of her sons for jihad. Three sons whom she willingly gave away to become suicide assassins are dead. And for that she let the people celebrate her. And Clemens Ladenburger? His child is dead and he tours the Republic with a metaphorical medal on his chest that is supposed to attest to his politically correct attitude. Long ago, in darker times, the parents of so-called “blood-witnesses” received tributes and honor, prizes and flags for their slaughtered children who sacrificed themselves, or who were sacrificed, in the name of National Socialism. For their political conduct about their deceased daughter they were honored by the NS-movement. It appears to me that here and today, there are clear parallels which if you think about it more carefully, give you a stomach-ache.

Bringing the Jihad Back Home

The two videos below discuss the surge of predatory and violent crime that has hit Sweden since the mujahideen of the Islamic State started returning “home”.

The Recidivists of the Islamic State

A recent study by Swedish TV shows that a third of “Swedish” Islamic State fighters who returned “home” have engaged in criminal activities upon their repatriation. I, for one, am totally shocked that ISIS mujahideen would ever commit violent crimes — such an outcome simply never occurred to me.

One out of three ISIS returnees commits crimes in Sweden

March 14, 2019

Approximately every third returning Islamic State terrorist has been involved in a crime since returning to Sweden, an investigation done by SVT [Sveriges Television, public broadcaster] News shows.

About 150 ISIS terrorists who traveled to Syria and Iraq have returned to Sweden and similar additional number may try to return.

SVT has succeeded in charting 41 of those who have already returned.

About one third of these, 13 men, have been convicted of or are suspected of committing crimes after returning.

These include among others lynchings (murders) in Vivalla and Orebro last summer, when a large group of immigrants attacked a man and a when 31-year-old so-called “returnee” finally killed the person with scissors.

The 31-year-old is believed to have returned wounded from Syria.

He is now suspected of murder and has admitted that he hit the victim in the head, but not to kill him. The returning ISIS terrorist is believed to have slashed the victim seven times in the face. The background was a deal between rival criminals.

“I have saved people. I should get an award,” the 31-year-old said under questioning, according to Expressen. ISIS returnees have also been convicted of, among other things, drug offenses, thefts, receiving stolen goods, fraud, felony extortion, felony assault and money laundering.

Twelve of the returnees studied are women, but none of them have been convicted of anything.

Converting a Lutheran Daycare Center Into a Madrassa

The only thing I can say about this disheartening story from Germany is to quote Scripture:

And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea. (Mark 9:42)

Shariah for the youngest: Pastor fetches imam for evangelical daycare

Coming up this April, right on schedule with Ramadan, the Evangelical daycare Steubenstrasse in Düsseldorf begins a large-scale Islamic indoctrination of Christian children. The idea for this experiment on the youngest of the young, and therefore most pliable in our society, wasn’t conceived by rabid Muslim parents, but by the evangelical pastor Hartmut Wölk, the supervisor of this diaconal institution.

Everything shall change now. The young Christians shall get to know Islam and presumably learn to love it all the way into their voluntary submission and conversion. That this may happen is the duty from now on of Agata Hanifa Skalska, a hijab-wearing “religion pedagogue”, and Imam Asmer Ujkanovic. The 41 children ages three to six years old, of which only about half are Muslim, will for example have to learn what Ramadan means, and also what the disgusting rituals of the bloodbathers during the Islamic eid-al-adha. Furthermore, of course, the wearing of the Islamic hijab will be thematized.

Of course Pastor Wölk didn’t call this project into existence all on his own. He received advice and direction for himself from the KDDM (District of Düsseldorf Muslims). Among other things, it is planned to celebrate the birthday of the prophet and the Islamic new year in the summer, and of course also to say prayers together. That, Wölk says, is important in order to create tolerance.

The day care leader, Isabell Fassbender, immediately fell into wild actionism and plans to acquire a Koran, prayer mats, and Islamic prayer chains. Colorful children’s books about the murder- and mayhem-cult are already in stock. Diaconia pastor Thorsten Nolting is even more serious: he muses about a future in which a Muslim educator is employed who could become an Islamic role model for the Christian children.

Therefore, no later than when the time for school enrollment comes around, it should be an accomplished fact that all freshly-brainwashed six-year-old girls would want to wear a hijab instead a cute little pink hair pin, and all boys will wish for themselves nothing more than their own prayer rug for at home.

Parents were informed at a PTA meeting. Most reacted positively. As for the “critical voices”, Isabell Fassbender said that they would be respected and it would be attempted to minimize “possible fears” through education.

In Germany, this means that those parents are considered to have a psychological problem, a so-called anxiety disorder, namely Islamophobia. And this disorder shall be exorcised via conversation. About like this: Islam is peace, shariah is a great concept, and Mohammed only abused Aisha because he protected her, etc. etc.

Imam Asmer Ujkanovic is well-practiced because these are the kinds of taqiyya stories he has ready to hand for the inmates of the JVA-Düsseldorf (Correctional facility Düsseldorf). To them he speaks to as an Islamic chaplain. He tells them that “staged and incomprehensible massacres” have nothing to do with Islam. “Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance,” says Ujkanovic.

Apparently not all parents fall for this, because since these plans were made public, the Islamophilic Pastor has been getting mean emails, among which he is dubbed the “antichrist” and as an “apostate”, as RP online reports. Pastor Wölk’s own Christian believes aren’t doing too well. A good shepherd protects his flock instead of leading it into the wolves’ den.

Thank You, Schengen Rules — The Third Rapist Escapes Abroad

As a follow-up to last month’s post about a girl who was gang-raped by culture-enrichers in Barcelona, the article below discusses one of the suspected perps, who was released from custody and has now fled the country.

The alleged third rapist of Sabadell, Khalid Oukhlifa, escapes abroad

Barcelona
March 5, 2019

Regional police agents [‘Mossos d’Esquadra’] continue actively searching for Khalid Oukhlifa, one of the men arrested at the beginning of February for his connection to the rape of a girl in an industrial warehouse in Sabadell.

He, as well as the rest of the men arrested by town and regional police agents were brought before a judge and then released under precautionary measures. Only two of those arrested were jailed; they were the ones for whom the judge was able to find more evidence of their direct involvement as perpetrators of the gang rape of the 18 year-old girl. But the third rapist remains to be identified.

Khalid Oukhlifa, the alleged third rapist of Sabadell

Among the men he set free under precautionary measures, nevertheless, the judge is convinced that the third perpetrator of the sexual assault of Sabadell is included, although he could not gather enough evidence and had to order their release pending more evidence. And this missing third man is Khalid Oukhlifa, as explained to ElCaso.com by police sources.

He was required to show up periodically in court in Sabadell on the judge’s orders, and a week ago, when required to report, he didn’t show up. The judge issued a warrant for his arrest, and now regional police are looking for him ‘actively’.

The police, when they received the order from the judge, tried to locate him where they believed he might be, but were not able to find him anymore; the other arrested men were there, but not Khalid Oukhlifa, who has now become one of the men most sought-after by the police.

His photo has been shared at the start-of-shift meetings in most of the police stations of the Barcelona metropolitan area. Anyway, and according to what ElCaso.com has been able to discover, detectives believe that Oukhlifa has escaped from Catalonia and that he is no longer in Spain. As of today, there is no international order for his arrest, and it would be up to the judge in charge, Marcos Melendi López — who is up to date on the latest findings of the regional police — to activate it.

The man, of Moroccan nationality, was squatting in a warehouse in Sabadell, with no known income or occupation, a fact that leads the police to think that an escape abroad is possible.

Allahu Akhbar at the Liebfrauenkirche

Cynthia loved Ahmed. She was devoted to him. She wore hijab for his sake.

Unfortunately for Ahmed, his application for asylum in Germany was turned down. When he was finally arrested and about to be deported, he asked Cynthia to come with him to Tunisia. When she refused, things turned ugly. Cynthia was later found stabbed to death.

The following video reports on what happened at the church where Cynthia’s memorial service was to be held. Many thanks to Nash Montana for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Below is an article about Cynthia from Bild (subscription required), also translated by Nash:

Cynthia wore hijab for her killer

[Photo #1 (at the top of this post): Without makeup, but with hijab: Cynthia looks into the camera with a slightly uncomfortable look. Ahmed apparently wanted to take his girlfriend back to Tunisia.]

Worms — Her death leaves you speechless! More than 500 people participated at the funeral march on the weekend with flowers and candles for the 21-year-old Cynthia R. She had been murdered by her boyfriend Ahmed T. (22) last week.

WHY?

[Photo #2 (not shown): In front of her house, pastor George Ambadan lights a candle]

[Photo #3 (not shown): A selfie from happier times: Cynthia and Ahmed only got together at the end of last year]

Friends of the family talk about the relationship between Ahmed and Cynthia. “She wore hijab for Ahmed,” says a friend of Cynthia’s father to BILD, “and she learned to speak Arabic out of love for him.”

When the two began their relationship four months ago, Ahmed T. already knew that he was going to be deported. His asylum seeker application had been denied long ago.

So he tried to convince his new girlfriend to go with him to Tunisia. But friends of the family say that went too far for Cynthia R.

[Photo #4 (not shown): Ahmed under arrest: After his arrest, the killer was brought to the prison with shackles on hands and feet. He’s been behind bars for five days now.]

Could this be the reason he murdered her? Because she didn’t want to move to Tunisia with him? Last Monday an arrest warrant was issued for her boyfriend in order that he might finally be deported. Less than 48 hours later the situation between the two escalated.

Ahmed had registered himself under three different identities and had therefore cashed in three times the spending money in Germany. He stabbed the young woman by ramming a kitchen knife through her neck, her lungs, her hands and her back more than ten times.

[Photo #5 (not shown): Cynthia with pit bull: Cynthia loved animals; she had two dogs. Here she poses with one of the puppies.]

[Photo #6 (not shown): Her cousin: Patrick Schopp (34) is devastated by the loss of his cousin.]

“She meant so much to me and I miss her a lot,” says her cousin Patrick Schopp (34, scaffold builder) to BILD. “I will keep her in my memory as this fun-loving person who never had anything bad to say about anyone and who was very helpful with everyone.”

Don’t Let the Door Hit You on the Way Out

The following video by a disgruntled female culture-enricher is a lament about how awful Germany is, and how she plans to return home — once she has sucked all the jizya out of the infidels, of course, and sent it on to her relatives back in Africa.

Ah, if only this represented a growing trend in Europe! Unfortunately, most of the “refugees” in Germany are young men who have no intention of abandoning the smorgasbord of nubile white females that has been placed before them for their delectation. In addition to being given lodging and free money, they can indulge their penchant for gropin’ and rapin’ to their hearts’ content — why would they ever want to leave?

Nash Montana, who translated the clip for subtitles. sends her take on the lovely young Muslimette:

She doesn’t feel comfortable here, because the history of Germany is repeating itself, and she calls on “refugees” to send the money home that’s given to them by the German taxpayer. We wish you a great trip home!

Summer Camp Blues in Canet de Mar

We’ve reported in the past on Blanca Arbell, the mayoress of Canet de Mar in Catalonia. Ms. Arbell is also the owner of the Can Brugarola summer camp, which just happens to have received the local government’s concession for housing underage migrants.

Now it seems those rambunctious “youths” have been up to their mischievous antics again. Many thanks to Pampasnasturtium for translating the PressReader version of an article from La Vanguardia:

Stabbings, fights and attacks in a summer-camp villa with migrant minors

La Vanguardia in Catalan, 22 February 2019

Last Friday night the neighbors of Can Brugarola summer-camp villa in Canet de Mar (Maresme) again lived through the umpteenth violent incident starring the migrant minors living there, under the public guardianship of the DGAIA [Department for Infancy and Youth Affairs of the regional government].

Can Brugarola is a villa in a summer camp belonging to Canet de Mar’s mayoress, Blanca Arbell [party: ERC, Republican Left], which causes criticism to be not well-received. The area’s inhabitants, who reject being called racists because they believe their safety is at risk, explain that last Friday’s incident was a serious one, where one of the young men stabbed another one ‘for trivial reasons’.

After the relevant report was filed, several patrols of the regional police, town police, and two agents in civilian clothes went to the site of the incident to arrest the perpetrator. As the police approached the house calling for the minor, the other 49 migrant minors came outside in a mutiny with a very violent attitude and confronted the agents, demanding that they leave. More than one of them charged the policemen and attacked them, which caused the latter to have to retreat and get away from the environs of the house.

The neighbors in the area complain about the insecurity these minors cause: ‘They come and go as they please without following a precise timetable,’ and they believe all security limits have been surpassed. They’ve gotten used to the police sirens approaching until the cars park in front of their houses. They maintain there have been more than fifteen occasions now when police assistance has been needed. Sometimes, according to the same witnesses, ‘the ambulance came and even fire trucks’ because one of the minors had locked himself up and was threatening to cut his veins.

The neighbors who complain about the presence of the unaccompanied foreign minors (‘mena’), faced with the attacks they receive, say they’re not willing to be insulted and be called racists when the truth is those who treat them that way are persons supporting a political position that wants to silence their complaints.

‘We’ve tried it,’ they claim. ‘From the first day that the house was filled with migrant minors, we’ve tried to behave like good neighbors,’ despite having to face antisocial behavior.

‘They block our front doors,’ the area inhabitants explain. That’s why they don’t want to hear about solidarity when the word comes from the public administration, ‘when they have not taken into account the security problems these minors cause.’

The neighbors of Canet de Mar demand a solution, and they do so in front of the mayoress, Blanca Arbell, who is also the owner of the villa. ‘We want a set-up here like the one they have in Arenys,’ where young men initiate a process of integration that keeps them away from these ‘two or three criminals they have located.’ In Arenys de Mar, the tripartite municipal government of ERC, PSC and ICV [Catalan Republican Left, Catalan Socialists and Catalan Green Party] puts all the resources available at the teenagers’ disposal. ‘We don’t want to be put in a bad light because of three or four bad ones,’ said one of them, Karim, during a local event in which the local Maghrebi community taught them to make bread and cook pastries.

Crime, Hate Crime, Propaganda and Censorship

Below is the latest from Seneca III concerning the situation in Old Blighty (which dysonym seems more appropriate than ever, given the events of the past few years on the nook-shotten Isle of Albion).

Crime, Hate Crime, Propaganda and Censorship

by Seneca III

Day after day we continue to be beset by the Thought Police for ‘Hate Crimes’ whilst real violent crime, murder, larceny and drug peddling, particularly in the seething urban hives, increase exponentially. Chief Constables everywhere constantly bemoan a lack of resources as more and more police officers are diverted from public duty and sit huddled over computers in darkened rooms desperately searching for self-proclaimed victims to support and hate criminals to prosecute for the slightest imagined infringement.

They probably have quotas to meet as their Chief Constables vie with each other for more honours and accolades from a thoroughly corrupted globalist governing class intent on tearing this nation apart and then ruling over the shattered, scattered pieces with impunity.

All this despite the fact that the concept of ‘hate crime’ is a classic oxymoron. If you assault or murder someone, it’s axiomatic that the act came out of some form of hatred. Whether or not it was focused on the ethnicity or the sexual orientation (or disorientation) of the victim, or anything else, is immaterial… it was a crime born of hatred.

Yet, not content with just peddling this singular load of ideological garbage, the establishment also enforces a politicised doctrine defining free speech as ‘hate speech’ wherein even undeniably accurate presentation of observable reality in a verbal or written form of commentary results in enhanced criminal prosecution and sentences. This is not just insanity, it is a real “thought crime” in itself. And where, as is the case today, the punishment is inconsistent with the principle of ‘the penalty fitting the crime’, public awareness of this impropriety develops into a far more intense well of real hatred.

The deconstructionists in Westminster, City Halls and Police Headquarters up and down the country might as well have just called it censorship and been done with it, for that is what it is, an attempt to conceal the fact that our of way of life, our culture, our inherent decency, indeed our very existence, is under sustained attack by an enemies within, and that that those enemies are attacking with the blessing and willing assistance of the establishment and its fellow travellers.

Add to this the fact that the laws on ‘hate crimes’ in the UK are being selectively enforced against one particular group of people — the original native and majority heterosexual inhabitants — and you have created a scenario where hatred for groups of people different from that to which you belong will indeed become the abiding norm. Our descent down that slippery slope is the inevitable result of the inherent cupidity of our Legislative and Executive, the rulers and their enforcers. The coming dénouement is their responsibility. They will have brought it about, and it will end up thrusting them over the edge of the precipice that they thought they were preparing for us, because when freedom of speech is gone, common decency, fair, impartial judgement and justice and all other freedoms will follow, most certainly and justifiably including theirs.

Behold, A Green Horse

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shows up again, this time in a new essay by Tabitha Korol. That makes twice in one day — I don’t know if that exceeds our AOC tolerance levels or not…

Behold, A Green Horse

by Tabitha Korol

“Behold, a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.” — Revelation 6:8

The original New Deal (1933-’36) was a series of programs, public works projects, financial reforms and regulations enacted by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, designed to rescue the US from the Great Depression. The artfully-named Green New Deal, proposed by the Democrat-socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), is a series of drastic changes designed to divert the US from the path of improvement and greatness set by President Donald J. Trump, and propagate Obama’s disastrous and divisive policies.

President Trump’s focus on energy has been removing the Obama era’s burdensome energy regulations so that we are now experiencing an unprecedented boom in domestic oil production and energy independence. We are exporting more oil than importing for the first time in 75 years. Trump has been so successful, in fact, that Obama has tried to assume the credit in the hope of salvaging his eight years of failure. The unscientific, childish Ocasio-Cortez endorses the climate change hoax, blaming every winter storm and summer hot spell on corporate America and on cattle with normal gastrointestinal activity. As clearly clarified by Paul Driessen on cfact, “AOC wants to lead the world in economic suicide, environmental degradation, plummeting living standards, shorter life spans and societal upheaval.”

Her desire to raze, rebuild, and refurbish every building with — allegedly — non-polluting solar or wind-power equipment, would create an insurmountable debt. Considering the revelation that she is supported by anti-American, globalist and Nazi-sympathizer, George Soros, it may be that she hopes to erase all remnants of our national history, a common aspiration for every tyrannical regime that has not the ability to improve on what others have achieved. Alexandria has described herself in divisive intersectional terms, as a Puerto Rican descendant of African slaves, indigenous people, and Spanish colonizers. She does not call herself an American, and seems to have no affinity for the welfare of our country and our fellow Americans.

It is not uncommon for a conquering power to burn (or replace) books and destroy historic sites and monuments of a conquered people, and to erase their essential cultural knowledge and evidence of existence. Today we have leftist instructors who have stopped teaching America’s history and Antifa groups and students tearing down our memorial statues, recalling the disposal of artifacts under the Temple Mount, the ruination of the Buddhas of Bamyan, and the damage done to Christopher Columbus’ images. Every edifice has an architectural style and history that, serving as a memorial to the earlier generations and an inspiration to succeeding ones, we have the duty to protect. But under the ruse of energy replacement, O-C would demolish all and replace with communist-style, regulated, mean living quarters — if, indeed, she would rebuild anything at all.

Her plan could well be more sinister.

Germany First? Are You Kidding Me??

In the following pair of videos, German politicians from all the major parties are asked to give their views on nationalism, in particular German nationalism. Because of the absolute taboo against expressing nationalist sentiments in Germany, the reactions from pols in all the major parties (except for one) vary from mild disdain to outright loathing for the idea of “Germany first”. The exception is the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany), which has managed to reintroduce the idea of nationalism into the Bundestag as well as public discussions.

Marine Le Pen on Muslim Jew-Hatred in France

In the following video, Marine Le Pen, the leader of Rassemblement National (National Rally, formerly Front National), discusses the recent increase of Jew-hatred in France, and the fact that it correlates precisely with the increase in the Muslim population.

She also points out what should have been obvious to anyone who’s been paying attention: the Jew-haters of the traditional far right consider her their enemy, presumably because she doesn’t blame the Jews for everything that’s wrong with France.

Female Refugee Helper in Germany Charged With Raping a “Youth” Under Her Care

In a reversal of the normal procedure, a (female) refugee helper in Germany had to appear in court on a charge of raping her allegedly underage (male) client.

Many thanks to Nash Montana for translating this article from Politically Incorrect:

Educator in court for raping 15-year-old Afghan boy

When a woman and a male refugee come into conflict in a rape trial, the distribution of roles is usually not hard to figure out. In a trial at the Landshut county court house things are different for a change: The 45-year-old educator Manuela M. is accused of having raped an allegedly 15-year-old unaccompanied minor in 2015.

The mother of two had worked as an educator in a live-in community for minor refugees in Kumhausen (Landshut county). This is where she met the Afghan boy for the first time. According to his registration, the boy was only 15 years old, but — surprise — all of the involved witnesses thought he was significantly older. At this point, it shouldn’t even have to be specifically mentioned any longer that he was unable to produce any identification.

At the trial, the refugee appeared as a joint plaintiff against the defendant at taxpayers’ expense, and accused the educator of having unprotected sexual intercourse with him against his will.

But on the first day of trial the defendant told an exact opposite story of what happened: The supposed victim had snuck into her room one night and had down her pants. There was no intercourse, however, because she had defended herself, she stated. Unfortunately the 15-year-old’s DNA was found on her body, and in her vagina. Therefore the credibility of the defendant dropped significantly, which let the court to instead believe the version of events that the young refugee had told.

Did gender play a role in the reaching of a verdict?

One thing Manuela M. Had going in her favor was the day after the incident the Afghan had been bragging about having been to bed with her, until he decided that it was actually rape. Furthermore, the refugee had sworn to his “educator” that he was 22 years old, which had corresponded with his appearance. Also the court decided that the educator had not intentionally abused the dependency relationship between herself and the minor refugee. And since it seemed hard to fathom that a woman the height of 160cm could inflict violence on someone with the stature of a man, she was therefore acquitted.

It is interesting to imagine how the verdict would have come out had the refugee been female and the educator male.

“Minor” refugee fought hard against having his age determined

Also, in the acquittal of the defendant, big role played by the fact that the victim vehemently refused to agree to a professional determination of his age through a doctor. Not surprisingly, since he most likely would have had to give up his “all around carefree package” containing security from deportation, first-class housing, care and fun for roughly €5000 per month.

In any case, the Afghan didn’t show a lot of interest in the trial. He missed the first day of court entirely, and on the second day he only showed up long enough to give his testimony, which took place sequestered from the public. After that, he left the courtroom immediately to take care of more important things.
