German woman sentenced over death of Yazidi girl left to die in sun

The Higher Regional Court in Munich discovered the girl, recognized solely as Jennifer W., responsible of crimes towards humanity for “enslavement resulting in the death of another” in addition to being a member of a overseas terrorist group, the courtroom’s spokesperson Florian Gliwitzky informed CNN.

Jennifer W. was residing in Iraq together with her ISIS fighter husband in 2015 when he bought a Yazidi girl and her five-year-old daughter as slaves.

Gliwitzky mentioned the husband, who’s dealing with a separate trial in Frankfurt, subjected the Yazidi girl and her daughter to “daily abuse.”

ISIS slaughtered my Yazidi community. We don't want your pity -- we want justice.

“The 5-year-old daughter was abused by blows to the head and pushing on the floor, which was so strong that the child injured her shoulder,” Gliwitzky mentioned.

“The child began to wet the bed from August 2015 … when it happened again, the husband tied the child with a leash and left her in the blazing sun in the yard. When Jennifer W. found the child like this, she told her husband that he had to do something, otherwise the child would die. However, she did nothing to save the child,” he continued.

Jennifer W. arrives for her trial in Munich, Germany.

The woman’s mom was the principle witness on the trial and was within the courtroom when the judgment was handed down, based on an announcement from her authorized group, which included human rights lawyer Amal Clooney.

The assertion included a quote from the girl, who mentioned: “It was very difficult for me to hear the verdict today. All the memories came flooding back. I am glad that after six years the German court determined that the defendant is responsible for my daughter’s death, but no sentence in the world will bring her back.”

The girl’s legal professionals mentioned the defendant “is believed to be the first ISIS member who was put on trial anywhere in the world for international crimes committed against Yazidi victims.”

The trial lasted 77 days. Jennifer W. had denied the fees and her protection group now has per week to file an attraction with the German Attorney General’s Office.
