A 15-year-old boy in Malmö is being prosecuted for defamation after showing schoolfriends a film of him having sex with a 13-year-old girl.

The boy filmed the sex act on his mobile and showed it to his friends in the schoolyard, according to Skånska Dagbladet. It is unclear if the girl knew she was being filmed.

The boy cannot be charged with child rape, as he was only 14 - and therefore below the age of criminal responsibility - when he slept with the girl. By the time he showed the film, however, he was 15 and therefore old enough to face prosecution.

The boy admits showing the film to certain other people.
