A 14 year-old girl was gang-raped by Muslim classmates in Sweden last May.
But the boys were allowed to stay in the school because “rapists are victims too.”
A 14-year-old Swedish girl who was sexually abused in her school by two boys is now receiving her education at another school, while the attackers remain enrolled at their current school. One of them, a 16-year-old carrying the Arab name Ajuub, suffers from an “impaired ability to understand what is right and wrong,” the verdict stated. He was therefore punished mildly. Other school kids’ parents, as well as the principal, are now unhappy with the situation.
The gang rape was committed on the 30th of May last year at the restrooms of a school in Skane, in the south of Sweden. Both boys, Ajuub plus an unnamed 15-year-old, raped the victim vaginally as well as orally. They were sentenced in December, Sydsvenskan reports. Ajuub was convicted to 100 hours of youth service plus 24 meetings with a social worker “in order to learn to make better decisions,” while the 15-year-old is considered by Swedish law to be too young to be held criminally responsible and has thus been set free.
The first few days following the sex assault, the girl, called Tindra, was too afraid to tell her mother about the ordeal, not daring to go back to school again. Apparently, the youngest assailant had spread rumours about the victim for several months, calling her “a whore that sells sex for money.” He also threatened the girl with violence.
‘Rapist is a victim too’
The school principal, who wishes to remain anonymous, says he “struggles” with the case and thinks about it “every day and every hour.” He’d furthermore like a “dialogue with the government” on the issue.
When addressing parents’ concerns, the principal says he didn’t feel the need to officially notify them since:
“there is no obligation for a school to go out and announce that there’s a student who has been convicted of rape.”
He then suddenly starts talking about “taking the whole picture into account,” and the interview takes an even odder twist:
“All three youths involved were our students here and all three are, in a way, victims in this case. The boy who was convicted has gotten a pretty harsh punishment, which turns him into a victim as well.”
Fria Tider has more on the young rapists. (translated)
In mid-December 2016 sentenced a 16 year old Somali rape against children of raping a 14-year-old girl with a companion. The duo, who had previously abused and bullied the girl, locked in May last year the 14-year-old in a toilet at a youth center in Lund and raped her.
The girl told the rapists had threatened to spread rumors about her unless she went and met them.
The one boy was a minor when the gang rape was committed and therefore referred to the social services. The other, a 16 year old Somali, was convicted juvenile and young offenders in 100 hours. In connection with the care he should under the social services “are trained so that he can make good choices to protect themselves and others”
The writer Ann Heberlein, whose daughter’s friend in the same class as the 16-year-old, noticed in an article on the editorial pages of the weekend that the rapists will go left on the victim’s school.
The girl has their part not gone to school, where she is enrolled, then the rape took place, according to Sydsvenskan. Instead she taught elsewhere.
The school’s principal, however, pleased with their actions. The headmaster said to Sydsvenskan that even the rapist is also a victim because he was forced to carry out 100 hours of youth service of gang rape against the 14-year-old. .
– The guy who now convicted’ve got a pretty severe punishment and that way a victim, says President to Sydsvenskan.
