On Monday, a Munich court condemned a German lady who joined the Islamic State to ten years in prison for allowing a five-year-old Yazidi “slave” girl to die of thirst in the sun.
Jennifer Wenisch, 30, was found guilty by presiding judge Reinhold Baier of the superior regional court in the southern German city, in one of the first convictions related to the Islamic State’s persecution of the Yazidi population anywhere in the globe.
Wenisch was convicted of “two crimes against humanity in the form of enslavement,” as well as assisting and abetting the girl’s murder by failing to offer assistance.
The court determined that Wenisch and her IS husband “bought” a Yazidi lady and her kid as household “slaves” and held them captive while residing in then-IS-controlled Mosul, Iraq, in 2015.
“After the girl became ill and soaked her mattress, the accused’s husband chained her outside as a punishment and allowed the youngster to die an agonizing death of dehydration in the sweltering sun,” prosecutors testified during the trial.
“The accused stood by and watched her husband do it while doing nothing to help the girl.”
Taha al-Jumailly, Wenisch’s husband, is also on trial in Frankfurt, with a judgement expected in late November.
The Yazidi girl’s mother, identified only by her first name Nora, has testified several times in Munich and Frankfurt about the alleged anguish inflicted on her daughter.
