Germany to deport killer of Turkish woman intervened sexual abuse
BERLINA Serbian national currently serving a jail term for fatally beating a 23-year-old Turkish woman who attempted to intervene in street harassment in Germany will be deported to Serbia once his prison term ends in November 2017, German daily Bild has reported.
Serbian citizen Sanel Masoviç had put Tuğçe Albayrak in a coma on Nov. 15, 2014 by beating her after she tried to prevent sexual harassment against two underage girls in a restaurant in the German city of Offenbach.
According to the Offenbach Foreigners’ Office decision on Sept. 18, Masoviç will be deported to Serbia after his term in Wiesbaden Prison ends.
Bild reported that the office made the decision after ruling that Masoviç posed a threat to Germany’s “free and democratic order” due to multiple offenses he has committed, including the one that caused Albayrak’s death.
Albayrak’s attempt to protect the girls targeted by Masoviç triggered an outpouring of public sympathy in Germany, causing thousands, including German political leaders, to pay their respects both on the streets and on social media.
