Stern magazine reported that Hussein Khavari, 17, had thrown a 20-year-old student off a cliff on Corfu, Greece, in May 2013.
The woman was severely injured but ‘miraculously’ survived and was able to identify her attacker. Khavari, who sits in detention in Germany after his DNA linked him to the October sex killing of Maria Ladenburger, 19, in Freiburg, was given a 10 year jail term by a Greek court.
Khavari told his lawyer that he ‘regretted’ what had happened. The magazine added: ‘Why the Greek justice system early on let him out of jail, if he pushed her off, is thus far unclear.’
Khavari pitched up in Germany in 2015 as an unaccompanied minor.
