Former Yazidi slave flees Germany after being confronted by ‘refugee’ Daesh captor

Ashwaq Ta’lo

The newspaper clarified that "after she spent three years in Germany learning German, Ashwaq accidently met the Daesh fighter "Abu Hammam" who had bought her years ago in Mosul for $100 and had tortured her for ten months". "She later moved under a humanitarian programme as a refugee with her mother and one of her brothers to the German city of Stuttgart".

"He was with another man in a vehicle, I know it was a white auto", said Ashwaq. "It was Abu Humam, with the same scary beard and ugly face".

The Yazidi teen chose to leave Germany, believing that she would be safer in Kurdistan, where her father lives.

Fearful that she would see her captor again and wishing to be reunited with four of her sisters who had since been rescued from IS, Ashwaq returned to northern Iraq, leaving behind the town of Schwäbisch Gmünd where she had hoped to start a new life.

'I froze when I looked at his face, ' she said.

"He told me: "Don't lie, I know very well that you're Ashwaq", she said, adding that he gave her home address and other details of her life in Germany. However, German authorities said they had no grounds for arrest, as Humam was also a registered refugee.


"And I know where you live, with whom you live, and what you are doing", she recalled him saying. Ta'lo said Humam threatened her.

Frauke Köhler, a spokeswoman for Germany's top court, says police made every effort to locate Abu Hummam using the e-fit image and Ashwaq's testimony, but were unable to find him.

Ashwaq herself says she heard similar accounts from other Yazidi girls who had escaped the jihadists.

By the time they contacted her again in June this year as part of the investigation, Ashwaq had already left for Iraq.

The State Ministry of Baden-Württemberg alone has brought around 1,000 Yazidi women and children to Germany, who they are now questioning together with the Federal Criminal Police Office to secure evidence "in the event that those responsible for the attacks against the Yazidi population are brought to justice".

Speaking about the deal with Greece, she told a news conference: "It's good that we've got a result".
