A German court has sentenced a Ghanaian to nearly 12 years in prison for raping a woman in front of her boyfriend.

Eric X, an asylum seeker, was handed the jail term at Bonn State Court.

He denied being responsible for the incident despite a DNA test confirming he was guilty.

Reports say he insulted the victim saying: “If the court says the DNA fits, then I have to call the girl a prostitute. Anyone who supports this girl who claims to have been raped is the dirtiest person on earth.”

The rape incident is said to have happened in April after he dragged the 23-year old woman from the tent she was sharing with her boyfriend at a campsite near the city of Rhine.

Eric X stormed the tent with a machete and ordered the lady’s boyfriend to stay where he was.

He then dragged the girl a few yards into a meadow at the Siegaue Nature Reserve and raped her.

In August, he was assigned to the psychiatrist to be examined for mental illness.

He confessed to killing his brother-in-law in a dispute about the inheritance of a family member.

Ten (10) days to the rape incident, Erik X got deportation notice from German authorities
