- Cologne imam blames the victims of New Years Eve sex attacks
- Sami Abu-Yusuf said it was the girls’ fault as they wore perfume
- Said it’s ‘not surprising’ they were attacked because of their clothing
- More than 520 alleged sexual assaults took place in city on New Years
A Cologne imam has said the victims of the New Years Eve mob sex attacks had themselves to blame because they wore perfume.
Sami Abu-Yusuf added that he was not surprised the girls were sexually assaulted, groped and raped, because of the way they dressed.
Hundreds of women were attacked by a mob of men in Cologne’s city centre on New Years Eve, with the number of alleged sexual assaults now tallying up to 521, including three rapes.
‘The events of New Year’s Eve were the girls own fault, because they were half naked and wearing perfume,’ Mr Abu-Yusuf told Russian TV according to Breitbart.
‘It is not surprising the men wanted to attack them. [Dressing like that] is like adding fuel to the fire’.
Sami Abu-Yusuf is the Imam of the Al Tawheed mosque in Cologne, preaching Salafism – an ultra-conservative form of Sunni Islam.
The mosque has been investigated by German intelligence in the past, and was raided in 2004 to break up a ‘secret network of Arab Mujahideen’, according to Breitbart.
This comes as German prosecutors say the number of complaints filed in connection with the New Years Eve attacks in Cologne has now passed 800.
About 521 complaints allege some kind of sexual assault, including three rapes. The overall number of complaints has grown from 766 on Monday to 809 on Tuesday.
Cologne police are investigating 21 people from North African countries in connection with the New Years Eve attacks for robbery, theft and trafficking stolen goods. Eight suspects are currently in detention, with one of them is accused of sexual assault for allegedly groping a woman.
Police logs from the night reveal the full horror the women experienced when they were set upon by the out-of-control mob of men on the steps of the city’s historic cathedral.
The notes reveal how women complained they were surrounded by men who tried to put their hands inside their tights and knickers and even insert their fingers in their vaginas.
One woman told police she was surrounded by 20 men of North African appearance before they attacked her, while another said hands were ‘all over her breasts and buttocks’.
