S Ali Bashar flown back to Germany after admitting to teen’s murder

The murder case not only has shocked Germans but also sparked outpouring anger into how it was possible for the Iraqi man to flee Germany with his parents and siblings under what police said were false names.

Ali Bashar, a failed Iraqi Kurdish asylum seeker, has been deported back to Germany after confessing to the rape and murder of a teenage girl, authorities revealed on Saturday.

Despite the absence of a formal extradition treaty between Iraq and Germany, he was put on a Lufthansa flight to Germany from the Kurdish regional capital Erbil, German media reports said.

He said the suspect had confessed to killing the German teenager during interrogation by Kurdish security authorities. "He said that the two of them were friends but that they had a dispute, and that he killed her when the girl threatened to call the police". "The suspect became afraid because she was under 18 and he knew if the police came it would be a major charge".

Feldman's death had shocked the nation and her alleged attacked is believed to have arrived in Germany in October 2015, at the height of the migrant surge across Europe into Germany.

Angela Merkel: 'This is a reminder to all of us, first, to take the task of integration very seriously, to make our common values very clear, again and again.

Previous killings by asylum-seekers in Germany have fanned tensions over the influx of more than a million migrants from places like Afghanistan and Syria in 2015 and 2016, an issue that helped the far-right Alternative for Germany Party enter the German parliament past year.

He was rejected in late 2016, but was allowed to stay in the country while his appeal was pending.

During this time, he got into trouble with the police on several occasions, including for fights, alleged robbery and possession of an illegal switchblade.

Bashar was known to police because he had become violent with officials over his asylum status, and had previously been a suspect in the rape of a girl, 11, at his refugee home, although an investigation was inconclusive.
