Germany to bolster rape law after Cologne mob assaults

Police look on as refugees demonstrate against violence near the main Cologne train station, where hundreds of women were groped and robbed by mostly Arab and North African men during New Year festivitiesThe German parliament is set to pass a new law Thursday broadening the definition of sex crimes and making it easier to deport foreign nationals who commit them. After years of debate on the need for tougher treatment of rape by the criminal justice system, the new legislation finally came together following a rash of sexual assaults in crowds on New Year’s Eve in the western city of Cologne. The legislation, entitled “improving the protection of sexual self-determination”, also lowers the bar for deporting sexual offenders, classifies groping as a sex crime and targets assaults committed by large groups.
