- Rapist, known as Amir A, 20, said he attacked boy in a ‘sexual emergency’
- He had not had sex in four months, so dragged him into changing rooms
- Supreme Court in Austria now say prosecution did not prove the rape claim
- They want harder evidence the boy, 10, was forced to act against his will
An Iraqi refugee who raped a 10-year-old boy at a swimming pool has had his conviction overturned because a court didn’t prove he realised the boy was saying no.
The rapist, identified as Amir A, 20, violently sexually assaulted the boy in the changing room of Theresienbad pool in Austria claiming it was a ‘sexual emergency’ because he had not had sex for four months.
But an appeal court in the country accepted the defence lawyer’s claim that the lower court had not done enough to prove he knew the schoolboy was saying no and overturned the conviction.
