Doctor charged with raping patients

A doctor in Eskilstuna in eastern Sweden was on Tuesday charged with raping and sexually assaulting several female patients.


The 40-year-old physician is suspected of one case of rape at Tunafors health clinic in Eskilstuna, where he was previously employed.

The prosecutor deems the doctor's actions in the case to constitute rape and is also accused of having placed the patient's hand on his sexual organ.

The patient is reported to have been incapacitated at the time due to their condition.

According to the local Eskilstuna daily, the doctor was also previously employed at Vingåker health clinic and in Örebro.

The man is furthermore suspected of 11 cases of sexual molestation during his time employed at the three clinics.

The doctor was arrested in January in connection with the allegations and was later remanded into custody.

During the course of the high-profile investigation several more cases came to light and were added to the list of the charges that the doctor now face.

The man is no longer remanded in custody and denies the charges.
