An Austrian court found eight Iraqi nationals guilty of gang-raping the German tourist in a flat on New Year’s Eve.
Prosecutors charged the Iraqi men with “abuse of a defenceless person and rape in a very humiliating and agonising way for the victim.”
The Vienna Criminal Court sentenced the men to jail terms between nine and 13 years. A ninth man was acquitted.
All eight convicted men – who cannot be deported because Iraq is deemed to unsafe for them to return to – launched immediate appeals against their sentences.
