Omaima A.

TRIAL International reminds its visitors that any person charged by national or international authorities is presumed innocent until proven guilty.


Omaima A. is a German-Tunisian national. She traveled in January 2015, with her three underage children, from Turkey to Syria to settle there. By taking care of the household and children, she enabled her husband to participate in the hostilities as a fighter. Between spring and summer 2015 Omaima A. held a 13-year-old Yazidi girl, who was entrusted to her by a friend, as a slave.



On 2 October 2020, the Hanseatic Higher Regional Court in Hamburg found the German-Tunisian citizen Omaima A. guilty of membership in a foreign terrorist organization, crime against humanity by enslavement, breach of duty of care or upbringing, unlawful imprisonment and breaches of the Military Weapons Control Act. She was sentenced to three years and six months in prison.
