A failed Iraqi Muslim asylum seeker suspected of raping and murdering Susanna Maria Feldman (right) in Germany was arrested in Iraq overnight, German authorities said Friday, after his escape sparked outrage and raised questions over immigration and police failings.
Times of Israel Ali Bashar, 20, (photo above) who is believed to have strangled the Jewish 14-year-old Susanna Maria Feldman after sexually assaulting her, was “arrested by Kurdish authorities in northern Iraq at the request of German federal police,” said German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer.
The arrest came after an outcry in Germany as police hunting the fugitive admitted that Bashar had fled with his family. They managed to fly out of Duesseldorf airport even though the names on their identity documents did not match those on their airline tickets.
Bashar also turned out to have chalked up a long police record over his less than three years in Germany and should have been expelled months ago.
When a member of the Alternative for Germany party, Thomas Seitz, tried to have a moment of silence in the Parliament for the young girl murdered by the Iraqi Muslim, Claudia Roth, from the leftist Green Party and Vice President of the German Parliament, refused to allow him to use his speaking time to honor the girl. Her action was applauded by all the leftists in the room.
