Smiling and cheering as they walk free from court: Immigrants convicted of Cologne New Year’s Eve sex assaults avoid jail despite judge branding them ‘animals’

Two men who were part of the ‘mass frenzy’ of sexual assaults in Cologne on New Year’s Eve grinned and cheered outside court yesterday after only being handed suspended sentences.

The Iraqi man and an Algerian were found guilty for their behaviour on New Year’s Eve in the city. They were the first of dozens of men to answer for sex crimes although several men have been found guilty of robbery on the night.

Their victims openly wept in court as they described the torment they had gone through during and after the assaults.
