Former Sex Slave Confronts ISIS Rapist On TV After He Was Found Living Free In Germany

In 2018 we detailed the shocking story of an Iraqi Yazidi woman who was kidnapped by ISIS as a teenager in her native Iraq in 2014 and held for three months as a sex slave by the terror group, eventually managing to escape and later resettled as a refugee in Germany after the harrowing ordeal.  But astoundingly, two years after her escape, she unexpectedly encountered her ISIS kidnapper while walking the streets of Stuttgart, Germany. The man she identified as Abu Hamam was living in Germany as a free man, and the police did nothing

“She told police and asylum officials about the encounter and although they identified the man from CCTV they said there was nothing they could do because the man was also registered as a refugee,” The Times reported in 2018. But now the Kurdish Yazidi woman Ashraq Haji Hamid (previously identified as Ashwaq Ta’lo) has bravely confronted her prior captor  the very man who bought her and violently raped her “several times a day” — on Iraqi TV in a rare, intense moment.

“Abu Humam, look up. Why did you do this to me? Why? Because I’m Yazidi?” she said to the prisoner now back in Iraqi custody, Abu Hamam. “I was 14 years old when you raped me. Look up. Do you have feelings? Do you have honor?” she asked him. 

“I was 14 years old, as old as your daughter, your son, or your sister,” she continues. “You destroyed my life. You robbed me of all my dreams. I was once held by Isis, by you, but now you will feel the meaning of torment, torture, and loneliness.”

“You’ve destroyed my life. You took everything from me. Everything I dreamed of,” she angrily told her prior ISIS abuser.

Now 20-years old, the young woman actually faints near the end of the intense encounter. The unusual interview recorded by the Iraqi National Intelligence Service and broadcast on Al-Iraqiya news channel in late November.

The idea behind the arrangement was to give a sense of closure to Hamid’s ordeal, and for a sense of national acknowledgement and healing in terms of what happened to thousands of Iraqi women after they were kidnapped by the Islamic state.

“Now you will feel the meaning of torment, torture, and loneliness,” she tells the Iraqi prisoner while sobbing. He’ll likely spend the rest of his life in Iraqi prison following his arrest by Iraqi authorities when he left Germany; or he possibly faces execution like many former Islamic State fighters detained by Iraq.

According to The Independent, after previously accidentally coming face-to-face in Germany with the man who had in Iraq been her ISIS captor, she had fled the country back to her native Iraq, fearing European authorities would do nothing. She feared for her life despite having made it from a war zone to the supposed ‘safety’ of Europe. 

In 2018 she told the full story of bumping into her ISIS captor of the streets of Stuttgart where he was enjoying life as a free man.

However, Abu Hamam was later “handed over to Iraqi security services when he returned to the country as well.” It’s unclear precisely how or by what arrangement he had returned to Iraq.

What’s shocking about the case, and what drove outrage when the story first came to light, is that Germany had previously given the ISIS terrorist “refugee” status. And who knows how many other escaped ISIS terrorists are now living freely in Europe under the protection of ‘refugee’ status?
