The beast knelt on the floor in court with his t-shirt pulled over his head as a “protest at his plight”. His plight? His children suffered broken bones and skull fractures. Unreal. Are these pigs completely devoid of any human remorse and self-assessment at all?
Syrian migrant threw his three children from an upstairs window after his wife revolted against traditional Arab women’s role
- Hassan Z, 36, from Syria, threw his children out of window in February
- He had also attacked his wife with a cooking pot after she stood up to him
A Syrian migrant threw his three young children out of a window in a rage after his wife insisted on being treated like a European woman, a trial has heard.
The children survived the shocking incident at a house in Lohmar, near Cologne, earlier this year.
The trial in Bonn, North Rhine-Westphalia heard the woman had made it clear she was not prepared to accept the traditional role of a subservient Arab wife and this had infuriated her husband.

The prosecutor said the 36-year-old man, identified only as Hassan Z, threw his three children out of the first-floor window of the house, a former Chinese restaurant which had been converted into refugee accommodation.
His seven-year-old daughter and his son, who was five, suffered fractured skulls and other broken bones.
His youngest daughter, who was only one, survived with only bruises.
The man has admitted throwing them but denies attempted murder.
The couple clashed frequently because she insisted on being treated equally and on February 1 this year he allegedly hit her in the face with a cooking pot.
It was not the first time he had attacked her, the court heard.
The man left Syria in 2014 and travelled to France, via the Balkans route, before moving to Germany. His family travelled later to join him in Lohmar.
On the first day of his trial Hassan Z knelt on the floor with his t-shirt pulled over his head as a protest at his plight.
The trial continues.
