Incestuous siblings who fell in love and had four children together continue to call for an end to laws banning their troubled relationship.

Patrick Syuebing was reunited with his younger sister Susan Karolewski more than 20 years after he moved to a nursing home in what was then East Germany when he was assaulted by her father.

Six months after rediscovering his birth family, the then 23-year-old and mentally challenged Susan began sharing a bedroom following the death of her mother, Ana Marie.

Their illegal mating produced four children, two of whom are severely disabled.

In 2001, the couple vowed to change German laws making sibling sex illegal, which they took to the Court of Human Rights in 2012.

Patrick served two prison terms during this time on incest charges.

Back then Email online reported Patrick saying, “We don’t feel guilty about what happened between us.

“We want the law that makes incest a crime to be repealed.

“I became the head of the family and I had to protect my sister. She’s very sensitive, but we helped each other through this very difficult time and eventually that relationship became physical.”

Despite already having a normal relationship with a woman, he insists, “We didn’t even know we were doing anything wrong when we started sleeping together. We didn’t think about using a condom. Little did we know it was illegal to sleep together.

“Our mother wouldn’t have approved of it, but the only ones who should judge us now are us.”

Susan has defended her union, explaining that they didn’t know each other growing up when her brother moved out at the age of three when their now-deceased father attacked him with a knife.

She added: “We didn’t know each other growing up, it’s not the same for us.

“We fell in love as adults and our love is real. There’s nothing we can do about it. We were both attracted to each other and then nature took over. It was that easy.

“What else could we do? We followed our instincts and our hearts.”

Her brother underwent a vasectomy to change the courts’ mind so he could live with his sister without risking another jail sentence.

He added: “There is no reason for them to lock me up now.

“I don’t want to go back to prison and I know we will never leave each other voluntarily. “If anyone doubts our love, they should just see that we won’t be separated.”

Germany’s incest laws were introduced by the Nazis.

There are currently 22 nations worldwide that have not criminalized incest, including France, Argentina, Brazil, Japan, South Korea and Turkey.

The practice is punishable by death in countries such as Afghanistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Nigeria.

It is illegal in the UK and carries a penalty of life imprisonment.
