Tulln, a town in Lower Austria, has refused to accept any more asylum seekers after it emerged that 3 refugees had raped a 15-year-old girl.
According to local reports, the men followed the young girl who was making her way home in the early evening when they grabbed and raped her. The suspects are believed to be young men from Afghanistan and Somalia. One Afghan has already been put in prison for the horrendous attack.
The town’s Mayor, Peter Eisenschenk, said: “For me, there is zero tolerance against asylum seekers who abuse their guest countries law. In view of what these criminals have done to the girl, the full severity of the law is required.”
Freedom Party Councillor, Christian Hafenecker, slammed the case, saying: “Countless cases already show that the migration of predominantly Muslim men under the cover of the asylum becomes an uncontrollable danger. It is therefore not at all clear why the Tulln’s population was not promptly warned by the police, and this terrible crime was kept ‘under cover’ for almost a month. Even for tactical reasons, the acceptance of such a safety risk for women is not acceptable.”
Eisenschenk has informed the government that Tulln won’t be accepting any more asylum seekers until further notice.
