A court in Austria has sentenced a 30-year-old migrant from the small East African island of Comoros to a mere thirteen years in prison after he confessed to raping ten women outside a Klagenfurt techno club between 2015 and 2019, RMX News reports.

A court in Austria has sentenced a 30-year-old migrant from the small East African island of Comoros to a mere thirteen years in prison after he confessed to raping ten women outside a Klagenfurt techno club between 2015 and 2019.

On Thursday, the Klagenfurt Regional Court heard how the man from Comoros sexually assaulted a total of ten victims — all in the area of the Disco Bollwerk on Klagenfurt Südring, Austria’s largest newspaper Kronen Zeitung reports.

Authorities were finally able to identify the serial rapist in early October after a trace of his DNA was found on one of the victims. Shortly after, police were able to track down and arrest the East African migrant. It wasn’t until Thursday’s court hearing, however, that the man finally confessed to the crimes in front of presiding Judge Gernot Kugi.

Prosecutor Daniela Zupanc, during her opening remarks to the court, said that she found the heinousness of the crimes committed by the defendant “difficult to put into words”.

“You can believe me, I’ve been a prosecutor for a long time, but even I find it difficult to put into words the deeds that the accused has committed. You think nothing can shake you anymore, but you will unfortunately repeatedly proven wrong,” Zupanc told the court, RMX News reports.

Zupac also described to the jury the way in which the defendant would assault his victims, which was always the same. The prosecutor said that the victims were always attacked from behind, forcefully pressed against the ground, and in some cases were strangled. The women simply had no chance to properly defend themselves, the prosecutor added.

“All of the victims have sustained physical injuries and three have severe traumatic disorders,” Zupac said.

Hans Gradischnig, the lawyer for the defendant, told the court that his client was guilty of nine of the ten counts of rape and attempted rape.
