In addition to Germany, Sweden, and France, Italy is one of the most important nations in Europe that is suffering the most horrible consequences of the migrant crisis. According to a Tuesday report, this nation was in shock as it was known that a Somali immigrant allegedly tried to rape a woman while she was in labor. This unspeakable situation happened at a hospital in Rome, a city that is already experiencing a crime hike thanks to the government’s unwillingness to have a tougher border policy.
The suspect in this horrible crime was 38-year-old Ali Abdella, who has been accused of sexual violence and theft by attempting to rape an unidentified 43-year-old woman. As reported by Italian outlet Il Libero Quotidianno, she was in labor at the Sant´Eugenio Hospital in Italy’s capital.
The details of the report are extremely disgusting. Apparently, Abdella stole and donned a green hospital uniform in order to enter to any room he wanted. Experts believe this modus operandi suggests he could have executed this same crime on several occasions. However, no information regarding his criminal history has been revealed so far.
Once the Somali migrant was fully disguised, he entered the woman´s hospital room. After noticing she was alone and making sure that there was no doctor nearby, he slowly got closer to the woman. According to Italian newspaper La Stampa, Abdella then began groping her thigh and masturbating in front of her.
After a couple of minutes, the woman realized what was happening, then she began screaming as loud as she could. Naturally, it was a horrible situation that was taken place in such a delicate moment of her life.
According to pupia.tv, hospital staff heard her screams and they immediately got into the room. Once in there, some of them called security while the rest remained in the room in order to protect the woman and prevent the suspect from escaping. Apparently, this was the first time this hospital experienced this kind of situation in decades.
Naturally, one of the most curious details of this unspeakable case was that it took place on December 31, a day that is highly celebrated in Italy. The Somali migrant took advantage of this situation in order to sneak into the room without any kind of problem.
Fortunately, the police quickly made its presence on the scene and managed to arrest Abdella without any complication. According to the Epozione police department, the suspect has been living in Italy for the past five years and has a history of crime. However, authorities didn’t provide any information regarding this detail.
This case has become one of the main headlines in this European country. Of course, the outrage has been quite intense considering the elements of this horrible case. In fact, police officers who decided to remain anonymous assured this was the first time they´ve seen that kind of situation in Rome.
Apparently, Abdella´s first trial has been scheduled for January 10. While many expect his criminal situation will be solved easily, the truth is that this event promises to become a long controversy. After all, it was known that his defense team is calling for a psychiatrist´s report.
Legal analysts assured this is a move which goal would be to prevent jail time for the Somali migrant. Instead, his team would probably look for him to be interned into a psychiatric institution where he would spend the sentence.
Unsurprisingly, this horrible case has once again raised the national debate of what the government should do in these times of migrant crisis. On one hand, the left side of the political spectrum calls for keeping with the number of migrants the European Union demands. On the other hand, the right-wing demands for a tougher immigration policy and to follow the path of some other countries like Poland, Hungary, or the Czech Republic.

Over the last few years, these nations have been known for their irreverent stance against the European Union on this particular issue. While they have been threatened with a series of sanctions, these countries have remained faithful to their commitment of controlling their borders and sovereignty.
Naturally, while many liberals have labeled them as racist, the leaders of these nations have assured that they only want to prevent their societies to suffer the same fate as other places like Germany, Sweden, France, England, or Greece.
