PARIS - A 76-year-old Frenchman has gone on trial for taking justice into his own hands after a decades-long mission to avenge his daughter's death.
Andre Bamberski is accused of ordering the kidnapping five years ago in Germany of retired doctor Dieter Krombach, who was tied up and dumped near a French courthouse to face charges in the 1982 death of Bamberski's 15-year-old daughter, Kalinka. Krombach was the girl's stepfather.

German doctor administers drug to French man’s daughter, with the intent, and commission of an act of rape.
I’d say the doctor is in deep doo-doo, and kudos to the restraint shown by the French father, for not exacting natural justice.
Sounds like the plot to a Jason Statham movie.
There are some jobs that shouldn’t be subcontracted out.
Why didn’t he just kill the German? A lot more tidy
Give him less time in prison (if he’s imprisoned at all) than the doctor got for the OTHER girl he drugged and raped!!
Dad should have taken out the bastard who killed this beautiful young girl himself...
He should get an award for doing what Interpol would not or could not!
I don't understand how you can get a slap on the wrist for such a crime. I can understand some leniency because he confessed, but to serve no jail time is criminal.
Does anybody understand the German mindset that considers rape so lightly?
The only thing good I can say about the doctor is that he learned between 1982 and 1997 how to administer the drug without killing the girl.
He was probably going to torture him. No reason to keep him alive otherwise.
Similar to my thoughts... need an example of the difference between Western and Muslim civilization? The rule of law is either important or it isn’t. No honor killing here, simply a demand that a court do its job.
And he acted in a manner which I happen to support. I think things have gotten too cerebral. Too much paperwork. Too easy to pass the buck on down the line. I’ve been reading David Bromwich’s new biography of Edmund Burke. Struck by how George III was using cushy-job-well-paying-ministries-positions to compromise the establishment and keep Parliament on the defensive. Sounds all too familiar.
I believe in the Law until it interferes with Justice.
These are the kinds of things that can happen when the legal system is corrupt. If it’s a jury trial, he walks. If it’s a star chamber, he goes to prison. I don’t know how it works in the EU, but I’d bet dollars to doughnut holes it is a star chamber.
I think a lot of it depends upon how much money you have to "redistribute." Pretty much like here in the US of A.
I was trying to remember the French criminal justice system. I believe judges are much more prominent there, than juries, but I can’t remember if that only relates to pretrial procedure or runs through the entire matter.
From the US "Declaration of Independence"
"To secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed..."
That means "the law" starts in our own hands; we then delegate the powers to implement it to the government.
To say "you can't take the law into your own hands" makes no more sense than to say "If you've hired someone to mow your lawn, and they don't do a good job, you can't take lawn-mowing into your own hands".
The Wiki page is confusing. In one line they say the girl’s stepfather was the German Doctor accused of killing her.
Elsewhere, this is contradicted, but never corrected.
The coroner’s report shows that the ‘girls’ genitals were removed and have never been found’. I didn’t know that was possible with a female without leaving a very conspicuous open cavity in the front of the body.
In Texas, we would sentence the doctor to death, and the girl’s dad would be ‘Father of the Year’.
“Sounds like the plot to a Jason Statham movie.”
True, too true!
However, ol’ Jason might not be allowed, by the script, to show the restraint that the French father showed.
It is always way too easy to ‘cowboy’ this one out. This Frenchman “served his dish cold”!
Innocent. Award the man a medal. His actions were little different from a bounty hunter, except motivated by justice, not the desire to earn a living.
Guilty of littering, 50 Euro fine. The rapist/murderer should have been placed in dumpsters, since Paris is too beautiful to have such filth on its streets. [Note: the plural “dumpsters” is the correct word; the doctor should have been separated from various parts of his body so he could understand what he had done to his victim.]
“Does anybody understand the German mindset that considers rape so lightly?...”
No, I don’t understand it. Sounds more like a liberal mindset than a German mindset. Sort of like how Islam is called a Religion of Peace, when they kill and mutilate people at will.
It reads like that occurred as part of the autopsy, not at the crime scene. If that's part of a normal autopsy procedure, it's a factoid I could've done without knowing.
Maybe the German court can convict the father in absentia and sentence him to a suspended sentence.
German ‘justice’ let the nut who stabbed the female tennis player go free.
The Polak was 71 years old when he hired the help. Why not take care of business himself? That’s what I would have done. Get affairs in order first.
I don’t understand this. They successfully kidnapped the guy. As soon as they crossed the border into France they should have put a bullet in his head and dumped him in a river. Done and done.
You know, some might call that bigotry.
No juries at all. Guilt and sentencing done by judges.
“Does anybody understand the German mindset that considers rape so lightly?”
Yes, it perpetuates the Aryan race.
Shoot, shovel and shut up. He did it wrong.
The source article also says, BTW, that the doctor raped a 16-year-old girl using the same MO but got a slap on the wrist.
You forgot the hot lime.
