Muslim refugee husband allowed human smugglers to rape his wife daily…HE EVEN JOINED IN
- A Syrian migrant husband paid for his family’s trip to Europe using his wife
- He allowed her to be raped daily by people smugglers as a form of payment
- The man later joined in with his wife’s attackers in a form of ‘twisted logic’
- It is one of thousands of incidents of sex attacks against migrant women
A Syrian migrant offered his wife as payment to people smugglers then joined them in raping her daily during the family’s crossing to Europe, it has been revealed.
The incident is just one of thousands of unreported cases of sexual assaults perpetrated against migrant women making their way to Europe.
The husband, who had run out of money to pay the smugglers in Bulgaria, put forward his 30-year-old wife to the smugglers in order to earn the family’s crossing.
But he soon started joining the smugglers in the daily rapes, in what an expert described as a ‘twisted logic’ in which the man’s wife had become the ‘guilty party’.
According to the New York Times, the unidentified woman – a mother-of-four – now lives in Berlin with her children.
Although there is now a restraining order against her abusive husband, she is terrified of being killed by him for bringing ‘dishonour’ to their family.
Susanne Hohne, a psychotherapist in Berlin who treats female migrants, told the paper the woman displays signs of post traumatic stress disorder.

However, she is not alone. Thousands of migrant women, often vulnerable and completely dependent on their husbands or male family members during their trek to Europe, face similar ordeals.
Last year four women’s rights organisations co-signed a letter to Germany’s Minister of Integration and Social Affairs in Hesse state described a culture of ‘rape and violence’ at asylum seeker shelters.
The letter, authored on August 18, stated: ‘It is a fact that women and children are unprotected. This situation is opportune to those men who already regard women as their inferior and treat unaccompanied women as “fair game”.
‘As a consequence, there are reports of numerous rapes, sexual assaults and increasingly of forced prostitution. These are not isolated incidents.’
Esraa al-Horani, a former makeup artist from Syria, told the New York Times she had dressed as a man and stopped washing to avoid being attacked.
She spends her nights in an emergency shelter in Berlin with a cupboard pushed up against the door.
Another, named only as Samar, described spending 14 months with her three daughters, aged 2, 8, and 13, on the trek from Syria to Berlin.
Refusing to let her daughters out of her sight, she and other female travellers banded together to take turns watching over the group while the others slept.
However, she too was propositioned by a people smuggler in Turkey – who offered to take her to Greece for free if she had sex with him.
She refused, but described hearing him
