Taha Al-Jumailly on Tuesday collapsed in a German court after he was found guilty of genocide and jailed for life.
The 29-year-old Iraqi who is said to be an ISIS fanatic chained up a five-year-old Yazidi girl in the sun (50° Celsius) and let her die of thirst as punishment for wetting the bed.
Al-Jumailly who was arrested in Greece and extradited to Germany two years ago was also found guilty of crimes against humanity resulting in death, war crimes, aiding and abetting war crimes and bodily harm resulting in death.
Together with his now ex-wife, a German woman named Jennifer Wenisch, they ‘purchased’ a Yazidi woman and child as household ‘slaves’ while living in then ISIS-occupied Mosul in 2015.
Wenisch was sentenced last month to 10 years in prison over the girl’s death. The girl’s mother survived captivity and testified at both trials.
ISIS militants target and oppress the minority group
The Yazidis, a Kurdish-speaking group hailing from northern Iraq, have for years been persecuted by ISIS militants who have killed hundreds of men, raped women and forcibly recruited children as fighters.
A historic ruling which means Tah Al-Jumailly is the first person in the world to be convicted of genocide against the minority.
