13-year jail sentence for attempted murder in Vienna asylum centre
In his defence the man said that he thought the 27-year-old Syrian man and a group of other men were planning to rape him.
He told the jury that he had been sexually abused by two men the day before in an apartment in Ottakring. He went to a hospital after the alleged attack but doctors could find no evidence that he had been raped. After being released from hospital and giving a statement to the police he returned to his accommodation and stabbed his sleeping roommate with an ornamental 8cm-long knife that was hanging on the wall.
However, the judge said that the real reason for the attack last September was the fact that the Moroccan man was claiming to be a Syrian refugee and that he was afraid the younger man would betray his real origins. He had travelled to Austria through Italy, using false identity documents, but the Syrian refugees at the asylum centre soon realised he was Moroccan because of the Arabic dialect he spoke.
The Moroccan stabbed the younger man so violently that he ripped open his abdomen and injured his liver. He also broke one of this ribs and severed a thoracic artery. If the 27-year-old had not screamed loudly for help, doctors said he would not have survived the attack.
