Surprise! Surprise! Hussein K. “refugee” murderer of German teen turns out to be 32 and not 17 after all…

A court in the southern German city of Freiburg said on Friday that a refugee, Hussein K., who is being tried for the rape and murder of a 19-year-old female student in October last year, has possibly grossly understated his age — and lied about his own father’s death.

Hussein K. has said that his father had been killed in Afghanistan while fighting the Taliban — a claim now belied by the fact that German authorities managed to contact the latter in Iran using a telephone number stored in the confiscated cell phone belonging to the accused.

The court said that an official document read to judges over the telephone by the father gave Hussein K.’s date of birth as January 29, 1984, meaning that he would have been 32 years old at the time of the crime, and not 17 as he stated when arrested.
