The Baden-Württemberg municipality of Illerkirchberg bears the burden of two crimes committed by refugees. A knife attack has an effect. And a convicted rapist went into hiding after being released from prison. Now the authorities are in contact again.
A missing convicted criminal from Illerkirchberg in Baden-Württemberg has contacted the authorities again. The man reported to the responsible police station last week and on Tuesday, said a spokeswoman for the Tübingen regional council.
The Afghan and other men raped a 14-year-old in a refugee home in Illerkirchberg in 2019 and had to serve a prison sentence. After that, the community had to take him back. The sex offender was ordered to report to the police weekly and to remain in the Alb-Donau district. According to earlier information from the regional council, the person concerned had recently failed to comply. As a result, the district office wrote him out for residence determination.
Among other things, the municipality and the district had demanded the deportation of the man. The Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Justice is also committed to this. However, the federal government has suspended deportations to Afghanistan since August 2021 due to the security situation. Illerkirchberg only hit the headlines in December because of a knife attack by a refugee from Eritrea on schoolgirls. A 14-year-old was killed and a 13-year-old seriously injured. The man has since confessed to the crime.
The citizens of Illerkirchberg stir up the two crimes. The father of the stabbed girl spoke up at a civil dialogue in mid-January. He and his wife wished for the future that the crime scene would be redesigned in such a way that nothing would remind of it. "My other two children are afraid to walk past it," Mann said in front of more than 250 citizens of the small community. The obligation to take the convicted Afghans back to Illerkirchberg after their release from prison had also caused heated discussions.
