Afghan migrant started new life in UK after ‘raping and murdering girl, 13, in Vienna’

AN AFGHAN migrant started a new life in the UK after allegedly raping and murdering a schoolgirl in Vienna.

Leonie Walner, 13, was found wrapped in a roll of carpet that was spotted dumped under a tree in the centre of the city last summer.



Hours after the discovery, Rasuili Zubaidullah had fled to Dunkirk in France – travelling hundreds of miles to dodge Austrian police.

He then boarded a trafficker’s boat across the Channel to Britain, where he tricked immigration officials in Dover by using a fake name.

Zubaidullah was put up by the Government in the Ibis hotel in Whitechapel, East London.

But in late July, British police received a tip off from Austrian authorities and found him hiding out in the hotel.

Next week he will now face a London extradition hearing – with Austria demanding he return to Vienna for questioning over the murder.

Walner’s body was found Saturday, June 26 just 330 yards from Zubaidullah’s apartment at 6.55am.

According to The Daily Mail her autopsy records include DNA samples linking her to Zubaidullah and his apartment.

According to reports, Leonie died “violently” of drug poisoning and suffocation after being given a “lethal overdose” of 11 Ecstasy tablets and cannabis.

Another Afghan, Shinwari Kuchi, who was in the same Dunkirk migrant camp as Zubaidullah told the paper: “I shared a tent with him when he stayed overnight.

“He talked about his plan to pay £3,000 to Kurdish traffickers to cross the Channel. He was intent on Britain.

“He had just arrived when I met him in the charity food queue. He had nowhere to sleep, so I said 'come into mine [tent]'. 

“He didn't talk much but when I woke in the morning he had disappeared. I never spotted him again and he didn't say he was on the run.”

Just ten days later he managed to enter the UK.

The Austrian government has now promised to track down those involved in the girl's 'barbaric' death. 

Leonie’s mother, Melanie, told Austrian media: “My little one trusted a 16-year-old and that was her death sentence.”

She added: “Why were these people still in the country? Why were they not expelled? 

“Where are the politicians in charge? We want to know that.”

Rasuili Zubaidullah will appear by video link from a British prison at an interim extradition hearing in London's Westminster Magistrates' Court next Wednesday afternoon.
