The trial opened in Munich this morning of Hans-Jürgen von Bose, 66, well-known composer and former professor at the music academy. He denied all charges.
From a report in Bild:
The Munich public prosecutor’s office accuses him of triple rape of an ex-partner (36) in 2006 and 2007. This is the second sex scandal surrounding the renowned music academy, following the trials against ex-president Siegfried Mauser (66).
Looking back: in April 2015, SEK officers stormed the Munich flat of Hans-Jürgen von B. His ex-partner had reported him and declared that he had weapons in the house. The investigators found cocaine and other narcotics as well as drugs, a gas pistol – and a student (26) of the professor in the basement. She offered resistance.
They also found a kind of timetable, which she apparently had to follow. According to the investigation files it is meticulously listed: When she should clean the house, when she can go to university, when she should have sex with B. and other men. Apparently, the student had subordinated herself to the professor as a kind of sex slave.
…Just under ten years earlier, in 2006, B. met his ex-partner, who now accuses him of rape. She is the sister of a student whom B. was mentoring at the time. They got closer, and it quickly became bizarre. According to the indictment, B. is said to have forced the young woman, who now lectures at a university, to stay awake by injecting her with cocaine. These accusations are now at issue in the trial at the Munich Regional Court.
… At the trial on Friday, Hans-Jürgen von B. spoke out on the accusations, denying having raped his ex-partner. On the fringes of the trial, he also explained to BILD: ‘The sex was always consensual.’ He had also denied the assaults to the police.
He had had a love affair with the woman. The sex was to ‘very special tastes’. He was basically shocked by the accusations, as his ex-partner had wanted to move into a house with him and start a family.
