Woman who helped fake story about Muslim men groping women at German bar found dead

Recommended Posts

A GERMAN club owner who lied about Muslim men groping women in his bar last year was arrested on Friday for allegedly killing the woman who helped him concoct the fabricated story.

The body of Irina Aizina was discovered in a Frankfurt field Wednesday with her face mutilated and about 20 stab wounds to her body, The Daily Beast reported. Ms Aizina, a 29-year-old mum, appeared to have been dragged into the field and her purse and jewellery were missing, the outlet reported, citing a police report.

Businessman Jan Mai, 50, was arrested in connection with Aizina’s death, the Daily Mail reported. Ms Mai had asked Ms Aizina to invest in one of his clubs two years earlier, according to The Daily Beast. German media reported that the Moldovan mother was set to meet with Mr Mai this week to talk money.

Mr Mai’s blood was reportedly found at the crime scene.

Mr Mai and Ms Aizina made headlines last year when they made up a story about 50 Muslim men going into one of their clubs early on New Year’s Day and groping women on the dance floor. Ms Aizina told the German tabloid Bild that the men “grabbed her everywhere”.

Frankfurt police investigated the claim and discovered that Ms Aizina wasn’t in Frankfurt during the time of the alleged assault and that Mr Mai told authorities security cameras weren’t working when police asked for the tapes, according to Newsweek.

Police called their story “baseless.”

Mr Mai and Ms Aizina were both set for court next month over the false story, according to The Sun.

Mr Mai, who was described in the Bild report as a man with “big muscles” and close ties to a motorcycle gang, had recently come home from Dubai with his sons before his arrest, The Daily Beast reported. He reportedly bragged about owning hundreds of apartments and argued with Ms Aizina about money.

Aleksey Antoni, a friend of Ms Aizina’s from Moldova, told The Daily Beast that they talked about the bar in the past and Ms Aizina never mentioned Mr Mai. Mr Antoni said he only knew of Mr Mai through photos.
