The girl was reportedly intoxicated, and had gone to the toilet where she was vomiting. The two accused allegedly forced their way into the toilet, and removed the girl’s clothing, before repeatedly raping her, in turn, according to the indictment.

Chief prosecutor, Bengt Åsbäck, said in his summons that the men had shown particular disrespect through both participating in the assault of the plaintiff, in a locked room, the Svenska Dagbladet newspaper reported.

The men have been charged with aggravated rape. Both men have admitted that they had sexual intercourse with the girl, but they deny criminal action.

As opposed to a respectful rape. What a moronic statement.

i wonder if we one day had direct democracy, and the majorioty voted to chop off rapists cocks, whether there would be more or less of this misery.

@calebian22. Although he is the chief prosecutors, he is sort of excusing the criminal actions of these two perpetrators since he himself is probably one. I bet they will not get more than two years prison sentence. The judge will argue the rape wasn't mal-intentioned as the girl initiated it by going to the loo to throw up and consequently her vomiting action turn them on.

Yet again, its the result of alcohol, when will it end?

Maybe they got confused and thought she was a Höör, and not from Höör

sorry bad pun.

seems like they need to stop teaching evolution down at the low end of sverige!

the men are starting to act like apes and not men !

If anyone is wondering where such behavior is learned, look no further than Hip-Hop music (If you can call that "music"). Hip Hop and Rap preaches violence, murder, and degradation of women. Hip Hop is a desctructive force in society. We would be well advised to consider this.

What will happen if all quilty rapers will be banned out of country?

All part of multiculture I guess...would be nice to have the names of these perpertrators, but that is not allowed because it would be plain to see that more often than not it is MC policies that are the root cause of this upsurge of rapes in Sweden.

How many of you assume that it was a White Swedish woman as the victim and Darkie Imports as the perps? I do.

I got a call about trading something I had on Blocket for something else that the caller wanted. The caller had a nice watch that I wanted. I decided not to do it because i really didn't trust him because he sounded like an immigrant. I never thought I was the kind of person that had prejudice. I have lots of immigrant friends and have had plenty of minority friends in my life. But there we go.... I'm a freaking prejudice.

Is our underlying prejudice causing them to act out? Or is their acting out causing our prejudice?

Too right Bumblebeetuna, immigrants can't be trusted. Especially racist American immigrants who think they are somehow superior to other immigrants.

You are partly right. Why? Because Rock teaches drugs and alcohol and getting high in any way you can. Let us not blame music, because I believe as humans we are automatically born with brains and conscience to know the difference between right and wrong.

@Princess P

Lol ditto! unfortunately there are way too many anti-immigrant, anti-black,zenophobic comments in 'the local' and ironically most of them come from non-Swedes!!! I can't understand why they think they are eligible to talk on behalf of 9 millions Swedes!
19:03 December 4, 2009 by Matan
Too bad you won't mention their ethnicity, or at least, if they are immigrants.

I don't call it racism

Anyways I bet they are immigrants.
21:14 December 4, 2009 by Jimmy
completely against what happened but

what was a16 year old girl doing INTOXICATED to the extent as to vomit?? Mamma or Pappa where were you????
22:34 December 4, 2009 by telos

how can you be sure they are immigrants!! it is neither scientifically, nor politically nor ethically correct to make such a comment. would it be correct if I say that you are racist?! if i follow your approach i can easily say that...

i cannot understand this hate against immigrants. another thing is that immigrants do not constitute a homogeneous category: there are males and females, they are from Chile or Iraq or somewhere else, there are atheists and fundamentalists, there are feminists, socialists, fundamentalists, conservatives among them...

I know they can't tell the names of the suspects since they're minors but in most cases of this nature, why can't they report who they are? Who are they protecting? Also, what dummy has sex with a drunk girl? That's a clear retarded move.
04:35 December 5, 2009 by anticommie
Because if they told names you would know most are islamofacist raping your daughters and killing your sons. Islam is a sick and twisted religion of NO-peace
08:07 December 5, 2009 by Rick Methven
@ anticommie.

You are redneck fascist who is NOT a Swedish resident. You know SFA about anything Swedish or anything else.

Why don't you go jump in a lake and leave us in peace
08:32 December 5, 2009 by Iraniboy
This reminds of that bomb threat accident in Gothenburg train. All of these fascist/racist posters started to blame immigrants, Muslims,....then it ended up it was a psyco white man. I din't know when these racists learn from experience!! There is absolutely no relation between someone ethnicity and potential to do a crime. A criminal is criminal whether it's Muslim, Christian, Athesit,...doesn't add or decrease anything from his crime!!
18:20 December 5, 2009 by norling
Since they were all drunk I would guess that they were not Muslim.
21:28 December 5, 2009 by Cuttingedge
Why always you talk about immigrants, any one can make his mistake whether is immigrant or those who call themselves real Swedish. if we look into crimes in Sweden, the big % its Swedish who commit crimes, by the way do you remember 70% of the so called Swedish are not, the came from France and all south Europe, even the King he is from France, am tired of all these crazy arguments in Local of saying Immigrants in everything bad. Do you remember what the Swedish men they are doing in Thailand and other third world countries. Or go check the story about Two Norwegian what the did in Congo Kinshasa
21:44 December 5, 2009 by zoothe
Wow, the amount of flat out racism on this board is staggering. It doesn't matter if you're an immigrant or a native; what purpose do comments like this serve? It's sickening.
22:33 December 5, 2009 by Rick Methven
There are just a lot of sick people - mostlybtrolls who use the Local as a bsis for their sick minds.

11:51 December 6, 2009 by kenny8076
great, they will do 6 months out on good behavior!!! just like everyone else in this country
13:13 December 6, 2009 by Bumblebeetuna
Ya! I was just pointing out my own, surprising, prejudice. I meant no offense to anyone.

Although, I have friends that are Kriminalvårdare and almost all the inmates are immigrants. As well as the customers at my job. They are always trying to scheme and trick. I'm not a racist for stating things that are fact in my own life.

I have the right to talk about these things without being called names.
14:53 December 6, 2009 by svenskdod
I am sorry, but it is a FACT that immigrants are the culprits behind the increase in Rapes not only in Sweden but all over Europe. In their native countries they are taught that women are inferior, and they come to this country with this mentality. The studies that have been conducted throughout Europe have proven this

It has shown that in cases of Rape and sexual assault 80% of the culprits are either 1st or 2nd generation immigrants. The unfortunate thing here is that SÄPO does not keep records on ethnicity (I have emailed to enquire) and so we have to rely on outside help. In this case from the European Union. Why are there so many people out there defending immigrants that are so clearly the biggest problem? Case in point Mona Sahlin.

I leave you with this question, is it a prejudice if it is the truth?
18:50 December 6, 2009 by volvoman9
So sad that this conversation degenerates into a xenophobic rant. Who cares what the ethnic origin of the rapist is? A sixteen year old was violated and her life was ruined. Focus people!
22:22 December 6, 2009 by DreEstwd
The thing is...some people like to get to the root cause of a problem so that it can be solved. Others, such as yourself, prefer to bury your head in the sand.
05:01 December 7, 2009 by JoeSwede
Sad that a 16 year old was raped. Sad that two men did it. Sad that we can't find out more information on the topic. Freedom of the press does not go far in Sweden.

The "Lilla Saltsjöbadavtalet" 1985 as reported by SwedenWatchQuoteOn march 21'st 1987 a remarkable conference was held at the Saltsjöbaden (the salt water spa) resort near Stockholm. A set of rules were adopted by the Swedish Journalists Club at their meeting there, rules applies to all journalists working for Swedish media.

These rules are commonly referred to as the "Lilla Saltsjöbadavtalet" (The little salt sea spa agreement).The agreement was supposed to be kept a secret, but as has happened with most of the state manipulated reporting on the multi cultural project, the truth has come out.The agreed rules were as follows:

"As an independent journalist, you must observe the following recommendations:Report positively, if necessary rename, fellow Swedes of foreign origin. In particular, this must be observed when reporting on activities related to youth, sports and art.

When reporting from events involving different cultures, interview and put visual focus on people of foreign descent. For a period of five years, you must systematically and consistently refrain from reporting on negative aspects like crime that can identify any religious or racial affiliation of the involved or can have a negative effect upon a population as a whole." (The language is really as clumsy as that)

This is just aweful!
03:01 December 13, 2009 by norling
Wher does it say in the article that they were immigrants?
16:44 December 30, 2009 by WriterDirector
Unfortunate for the victim, Yes. Perhaps there is a lesson to be learned from all of this. Don't get drunk and lose control of Your situation. I would imagine that if She had NOT been drunk (So Much for Values), then perhaps She might not have been in that compromised state and could have possibly spotted the trouble before hand, but that's a Big IF. Now, Malmö - This place seems to have more problems than anywhere else in Sweden? Hmm, I wonder why? As much as I H8 M-[CENSORED]-S, these are not the only group that commit crimes in the world, however, there does seem to be a lot of these types of crimes reported in the news that have been committed by Arabic groups, than others. : )

Bottom line... Regardless of Religion, Race or Culture, It's Lucky for those guys it wasn't my child they violated. : (
03:34 December 31, 2009 by mieoux
Did no one else go into the bathroom when this was going on? I would assume the girl would have been calling for help. Did no one hear anything in order to intervene and stop it? Or was it another case of that particularly European form of stupidity where you stick your head in the sand and you don't step in when someone is in trouble?

Incidentally I didn't read anything in the article about the ethnicity of the victim or the perpetrators. So I can only assume those people going on about that are illiterate idiots. However I wish the article had provided this information.

The news should give full and complete information on the perpetrators ethnicity, names, where they live, their hometowns, where they grew up and went to school, but then there is a particularly Swedish form of stupidity where Sweden likes to protect criminals. The more information given the better it is for everyone in the end. Yes, protect victims' identities, but perpetrators should not be offered such protection.
