Four ‘Germans’ accused of gang rape in Mallorca turn out to be Turks

The sigh of relief in the leftwing German Forest on Thursday evening was almost audible: At last some reports of "native German" tourists involved in a sexual crime. But it now turns out that German media misrepresented the facts.

    According to German media, four “Germans” have been accused in Mallorca of the gang rape against a compatriot. Finally, the leftists cheered the fact that there are actually German perpetrators of a crime that is immediately associated with migrants.

    But whatever interferes with the leftist world view must not be allowed to be distorted by facts. The news agency dpa simply ignored a decisive detail in its report on the incident.

    Spanish media however reported what dpa had so carefully concealed: The perpetrators are German-Turks. The accusation of fake news has once again been confirmed.

    Worse still, the original source cited by dpa was Ultima Hora, the largest newspaper on the Balearic Islands. And the source had clearly stated the origin of the perpetrators. Instead, dpa had to add that the perpetrators came from the German city of Frankfurt am Main.

    Very few readers of the report would argue that the origin of the perpetrators did not play a role in the act. Thus German media carefully placed their emphasis on citizenship in their headlines. News weekly Der Spiegel headline read: “Four Germans arrested for rape allegations.”

    The text accompanying the picture read: “Four German tourists arrested.” Daily Die Welt similarly chose the headline: “German holidaymakers on Mallorca accused of gang rape.”

    The four Turks with German passports were arrested at Palma airport, suspected of having gang raped a teenage German girl in Cala Rajada.

    According to the Guardia Civil, the incident occurred in the early hours of Wednesday morning. She is said to have protested but as two raped her, the other two allegedly filmed the incident on their smartphones.

    The victim reported the gang rape right away and was rushed to Son Espases Hospital to be medically examined in the early hours of the morning. The results of the medical reports indicate that she had suffered injuries compatible with sexual aggression.

    The local community and council in Cala Ratjada expressed deep shock at the news.

    Although not all the German media outlets that reported the case forgot to mention the reference to the Turkish origin of the alleged rapists, there is clearly an intent to manipulate the focus of the report.

    Many other editors however simply did not bother to double-check the dpa message before copying the text. They blindly printed what the agency had reported, which is clearly bad journalism.

      It doesn’t matter whether they are German, Turks or Spanish. They are men and should be taken responsible. However, the far right wingers always do the same in Spain, Germany or wherever, only care about rape if the perpetrators are migrants, because you are not worried about the rights of women but about your own right as rapists

      Turks…no surprise there.
