Two arrested for asylum home male gang rape

Police on Wednesday arrested two men in connection to a suspected gang rape of a 20-year-old man, carried out by three other men, in a home for asylum seekers in northern Sweden.

“All I can say is that they are all between 18 and 20, apart from one of the suspects who is under 18,” said Inga-Lis Adervall Åström, prosecutor at the Umeå prosecution chamber to local paper Norrländska Socialdemokraten (NSD).

Adervall Åström was unwilling to elaborate on the case or even confirm the sex of those involved due to the delicate nature of the on-going investigation.

According to the paper, the suspected rape took place in a flat in one of the apartment buildings that the Swedish Migration Board (Migrationsverket) rents house asylum seekers.

The berths in the apartments are divided into two asylum seekers per room, meaning that a three bedroom flat could house up to six asylum seekers of different nationalities and backgrounds.

The paper reports that there are five names on the door of the flat in question, which has been cordoned off by police.

The incident is said to have occurred in the early hours between Tuesday and Wednesday and according to a newspaper source, the attack could have been triggered by ethnic or religious motives.

According to the Migration Board's Ann-Gerd Malmström, the agency tries to take these things into consideration when they allocate housing.

“But personal conflicts can break out between all people regardless of their ethnicity and religion. We are all individuals. I have no idea of this particular case and I have no wish to speculate into that,” said Malmström to NSD.

Police have arrested two of the three suspects so far. They are under suspicion of aggravated rape and robbery. The prosecutor must file remand orders by Saturday or the men will be free to go.

Prosecute them, lock them up and after they have served their time send them packing back to their glorious countries. We don't need anymore criminals coming into Sweden, breaking our stupids laws while living of my tax money.

It's a rampant epidemic, just like the Svenssons in Sweden.

Thank god, er, i mean allah, that the muslims are there in Sweden, to set an example and clean up the mess.

Were these young men classified as men or as ensamkommande barn upon their entry to Sweden?

Nevertheless, other sources name this asylum home as having had frequent reports of violence, narcotics, and arson, and many residents say they don't feel safe there.

Swiftly and permanently deport violent persons of non-Swedish origin.
21:08 April 20, 2012 by Welsh Pudding
Why don't the press publish details about where these guys came from ? I'll tell you why , because the press is regulated by the Swedish government and is not allowed to clearly label these people as it would cause offence to racial sensitivity.

Did you know that most media in Sweden is heavily subsidised and any media who was to stirr up 'racial tension' by telling .....the truth ...THE TRUTH ...., will loose government support. Effectively closing them down.

Does this remind you of anything ?? Oh yeah Germany in about 1939 or or maybe North Korea !!

The truth is out there folks just look for it !!

@ Iraniboy

I don't see what you're attempting to do with that comment (#7). Aside from the name, that description could be of an Iranian. I went to school with a fellow who had brown hair and green eyes who everybody he met always commented on his Italian looks, only to find out from him that is origins are in the Isfahan region close to Lorestan province near the forests of Poshtkue.

Yeah it could be. That doesn't change anything. But you don't see who he looks like it open the FBI link yourself. His picture is included.

There are more sexual assaults on a daily basis from the areas where bcterry and liberta. come from! Just open beloved FOXNEWS.com

Not hard to figure who the perpetrators were on this one. I wonder if this will be reason to consisder deportation or is that tto extreme?

Iraniboy,

There are more sexual assaults on a daily basis from the areas where bcterry and liberta. come from!"

You have absolutely no basis in fact to make such an ignorant statement.

Your desperation is embarrassing.

Rape in Muslim Countries

"In many Muslim countries, rape is common but the idea that there should be four witnesses to prove the rape can be hard to produce as rape can take place when the aggressor and the victim are totally alone.

Some women prefer not to report the rapist for fear of scandal as sex outside marriage or rape is seen as dishonouring their family.

The Islamic law or sharia condemning the aggressor to lashes or death is practised in very few countries like Saudi Arabia. In other Muslim countries like Morocco the penalty is imprisonment and a fine or the aggressor with the consent of the victim in case of deflowering her should marry her.

Another point is that in many Islamic countries rape within marriage isn't recognised as the woman should be at the beck and call of her husband even in sexual matters. But in countries like Morocco, there are associations formed to help women in difficulties with their husbands, including the sexual abuse they can be exposed to.

In view of the traditional restrictions on sexual freedom in Muslim countries and the desire for a romantic relation, many women fall victims to rape resulting in deflowering which is considered as a loss of dignity for the woman and a dishonour to her family.

To deal with the problem of rapes and to have real statistics about it in the Muslim world, taboos on this should be lifted and open debates should be organised to sensitise women about the legal procedures they should follow as well as sensitizing societies and families to provide the victim with support instead of looking down on her as a shame to her surrounding."

The difference between my country and islamic countries, is that women are not afraid to come forward for fear of being stigmatized, or much worse, if you get my drift.

No base?! Just visit any local North American website like Foxnews and see the descriptions of rapists!

You are just making examples and use them as a proof for your generational. If I use the same method and I just read local American news websites like Foxm all rapists and children sex offenders are white males. The problem with people having your mentality is that when you see a white male sex offender you rapidly separate yourself from him. However your brain is unable to do the same procedure if that man doesn't share any background similarities with you!
23:51 April 20, 2012 by libertarianism
Iraniboy, I don't care where the men are from. I care how they act. There was an American woman on TL recently who attacked, hit, knocked down, stomped, and kicked some drunk man who stole her (or her friend's) phone. A lot of posters thought that was great. I, however, thought it was horrible. I thought she should be deported as well. I don't like violence.

The people who live at this asylum home have said they are afraid because of the regular violence, arson, and drug trafficing. I feel bad for the people at the asylum home who are afraid. I feel horrible for this kid who was just attacked. I see nothing wrong with deporting rapists, murderers, and other violent people. Deport the arsonists as well.

Here - practice your Swedish:

P.S. The rapists aren't "Svenssons" but asylum seekers. Both from the same country but in NSD it doesn't say which.

You said "there are more sexual assaults on a daily basis from the area where i come from".

I said that is an ignorant statement with no basis in fact.

It is virtually impossible to come to that conclusion.

Are there rapes, sure, rapes are everywhere, but the FACT is, that muslims in Europe and Sweden are committing the majority in those areas.

THAT, is an undeniable FACT.

"You are just making examples and use them as a proof for your generational."

The FACT i just gave you is absolutely proof.

"If I use the same method and I just read local American news websites like Foxm all rapists and children sex offenders are white males. "

Where did i say ALL?

"The problem with people having your mentality is that when you see a white male sex offender you rapidly separate yourself from him."

That again is an outright LIE, as i have never denied or separated myself from the FACT that whites commit sexual assaults.

You cannot simply make sxxx up to bolster your arguments, you have to present facts to back them up,which you NEVER do.

Your an outright liar, with no credibility, or integrity as a result.

I have called you on your lies, are challenged you to back them up many times, EACH AND EVERY TIME, you slink off with your tail between your legs.

You're an embarrassment.

BTW, since you brought up pedophillia, your "perfect example for all mankind to follow" self proclaimed "prophet", had sexual intercourse with a 9 year old CHILD!!!, when he was in his 50's.

That 's a "perfect example of a pedophile".

How about 'thighing", care to comment?, ..... i didn't think so.

@24:

He wanted the girl when she was 7, but he was denied and he had to wait (marry another woman) until she became 9. His book forbad his followers to marry any of his widows, and she had to remain single after his death. She was 20 when he died.

Quite a clever but rotten showman, reminds me of Bernie Madoff and Charlie Manson.
10:01 April 22, 2012 by Iraniboy
@bcterry

You are hilarious! and of course hypocrite! If you believe in the text from1400 years ago that he married a 9 years old girl then how come you should also believe the rest of it when it is said he divided moon into half or other attribution that is written in the same book that is written he married a 9 year old girl!

Another hypocrisy is how you keep sweeping under the carpet the numerous examples of some white man unusual sexual habit from slaving their daughters and having sex with them to serial rape and murder. Like I said before your little brain has good functionality to separate these cases from you but it has very limited functionality to separate an identical case if the perpetrator is from a Middle Easterern country. It either stems from extreme stupidity or blind hatred of people belonging to other ethnic, religious groups. Please go to a doctor ASAP!

Whatever racists comments, the truth is that Swedish immigration office doesn't respect international obligations: to separate people from war. They send in the same house Kosovo Albanians and Serbs from Kosovo who killed each others and now they live in the same rooms. Will you live with someone who killed your family? There is rule for all EU countries but some countries don't follow rules, it is like that they mix Jewish and Palestinians. I know asylum seeker who asked for other house, they refused under excuse that this is Sweden and not Kosovo. Racist Immigration office is happy if immigrants kill each other.

I have not done anything of the sort, and you know it?

Where did that one come from, do you just pull this imaginary sxxx out of your axx?

If i keep sweeping those NUMEROUS things under the carpet, , it should be very easy to give me JUST ONE, example where i have done that.

If you cannot do that, which you can't, then once again you will have made a fool of yourself.

Do you post anything that is not a lie?

You're a desperate boy, please seek help.

Immigrants from Middle East and other Muslim countries as a minority have one of the the highest rates of convictions per capita. Live with it, it is a fact. Convictions for rape make up a relatively high percentage of all convictions.

Examples?

Muslims less than 1% of the US population, yet constitute more than 80% of terror convictions.

4 out of 5 Middle-Eastern women are sexually abused between the ages of 3 and 6 by family members.

Pakistan ranked No. 1 in searches for "child sex," "animal sex," "rape sex," "camel sex," "dog sex," "rape video."

8 of the top 10 persecutors of Christians are Islamic countries. Of the top 30 countries, only 7 have a source other than Islam.

Instead of denying facts maybe focus your energy on educating your brothers in faith. Otherwise it seems like great hypocrisy to shout 'racism' in the face of facts.

And another inconvenient fact:

Jewish victims of hate crimes in the US outnumber Muslim victims by a 10-1 ratio.

Anti-Christian incidents outnumber anti-Muslim incidents in the US.

Source? wikiislam (yes, I know, it must be owned by Jews...) :P

The late and unlamented Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran.

"A man can have sexual pleasure from a child as young as a baby. However, he should not penetrate vaginally, but sodomising the child is acceptable. If a man does penetrate and damage the child then, he should be responsible for her subsistence all her life. This girl will not count as one of his four permanent wives and the man will not be eligible to marry the girl's sister... It is better for a girl to marry at such a time when she would begin menstruation at her husband's house, rather than her father's home. Any father marrying his daughter so young will have a permanent place in heaven. ["Tahrirolvasyleh", fourth edition, Qom, Iran, 1990]

A man can have sex with animals such as sheep, cows, camels and so on. However, he should kill the animal after he has his orgasm. He should not sell the meat to the people in his own village, but selling the meat to a neighbouring village is reasonable.

If one commits the act of sodomy with a cow, a ewe, or a camel, their urine and their excrement become impure and even their milk may no longer be consumed. The animal must then be killed as quickly as possible and burned. "

Interesting that the "moderates" of islamism bring rapists in western countries as an allowance and excuse for muslims to rape and beat. What they disregard is that in muslim countries there are religious LAWS that allow such conduct.

Here is a cute article about high officials and clerics in islam instructing of CORRECT punishment of a woman.

http://islam-watch.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=620:islamic-wife-beating-rules-of-allah&catid=87:lennard&Itemid=58

According to islam (as it is understood by millions TODAY) woman has a slightly higher position than a SLAVE and shall be treated as such.

Another cute detail is the legal structure of the rape proof that was mentioned before. Special Fatwa exists in regards to Zina (rape of own daughter). Such an accusation is provable only in case of a testimony of 4 TRUSTWORTHY men or admittance of the perpetrator himself. Testimony of ANY woman is invalid. Meaning that if the father does it in presence of the mother and 3 other sisters, he is not guilty by definition.

If the daughter has not the mentioned above proof, or one of the men is proven as "not trustworthy", she SHOULD NOT HAVE accused her father and SHOULD NOT HAVE taking him to the court. Everybody knows what "should not have" means in islamic countries.

http://www.islamweb.net/emainpage/index.php?page=showfatwa&Option=FatwaId&Id=156817

It is taught in their mosques that get government support, written in published literature and promoted outside the sharia states.

And then SOME come and tell that there are rapists and beaters outside islamic countries. WOW what a discovery! What an undeniable argument!

So according to this logic, the existence of Ted Bundy in the US effectively permits official education towards mass murder in islamic countries and the existence of child kidnappers in Europe permits budgeting child kidnappers in the Ministry of Interior of islamic states.

The huge difference is, any decent SANE individual would condemn these acts no matter who performed them, instead of claiming some sort of sick justification through equivalence.
