Munich’s sex-pest is back in court on new charges

November 27, 2017 by norman lebrecht


The former rector of the Munich Academy of Music and the Salzburg Mozarteum, Siegfried Mauser, was in court again today charged with the rape of a woman who applied to be his assistant and the molestation of another.

Mauser, 63, denied the charges.

He has already been convicted of groping two female faculty members in Munich and, while he has not resumed his academic career, various old friends have invited him to serve on piano juries.

    In the Middle ages, the punishment for these alleged crimes was a red hot poker inserted where the sun does not shine.

      The reality is rather different.

      In the Middle ages rapes were rarely punished, punishments were typically minor and in about half the cases the victim was prosecuted for making false accusations instead.

      The Middle Ages were not golden age of concern about rape.

    And after the”rape” she agreed to meet him again,maybe perhaps “to heal herself from the terrible events”…..laughing my ass off!What a copycat! But NL of course choose to ignore this for a raucy tabloid press headline…
