A verdict is now being issued against the widow of the terrorist and rapper Cuspert.

The charge: aiding and abetting crimes against humanity.

Hamburg - In the Hamburg trial of the enslavement of two Yazidis, the verdict is expected today.

The accused is 37-year-old Omaima A., widow of IS terrorist and rapper Denis Cuspert (“Deso Dogg”).

As a member of the terrorist organization Islamic State (IS), she is accused of being a part of a crime against humanity in the form of enslavement under the International Criminal Code (Ref .: 4 St 1/21).

The Hamburg Public Prosecutor's Office demanded a two-year prison sentence for the accused.

Taking into account an already final three and a half year sentence, a total imprisonment of four years should result, said a court spokeswoman.

The defense attorney agreed with the Attorney General's request.

After an agreement on a scope of punishment, the defendant admitted at the beginning of the trial before the State Security Senate at the Hanseatic Higher Regional Court that she had her apartment in the Syrian city of Raqqa cleaned by a friend's slaves at the beginning of 2016.

"I showed the two slaves the apartment and told them which area to clean," a statement said.

It was clear to her that the two Yazidis were staying in the apartment against their will.

The Hamburg-born German-Tunisian distanced herself from IS and regretted her “wrongdoing”.

She apologized to the two Yazidis, one of whom was admitted as a joint plaintiff.

Omaima A. had already been sentenced to three and a half years in prison on October 2, 2020 for membership in a terrorist organization abroad.

The verdict became final in March and the defendant is currently serving her sentence.

At the beginning of the second day of the trial, those involved had agreed on a range of punishment.

The now 37-year-old followed her husband to Syria with three small children at the beginning of 2015.

After the death of her husband in the spring of 2015, she married his boyfriend Cuspert.

The Berlin gangster rapper joined IS in 2014 and was on the terrorist list in the USA.

According to media reports, he was killed in an air strike in Syria in 2018.

At the beginning of September 2016, shortly before the birth of her fourth child, Omaima A. flew back to Germany via Turkey.

When chairing judge Ulrike Taeubner asked why she traveled to the IS area with her children as a young mother, there was only one vague answer: Perhaps it was Islamic, the veil, she said. "I don't know." She had "really little" noticed of the rule of the Islamic State. dpa
