Rape in Sweden - and its perpetrators
From Dagens Nyheter (my translation):
According to a not yet published study from the Crime Prevention Council, Brå, men with a foreign background are over-represented in the group of suspected rapists. It is approximately four times more common that a known offender is born abroad, compared to persons born in Sweden.
It has looked like that for a long time, according to Peter Martens, statistician for Brå. He points out that the talk is about identified offenders. That they have been identified does not mean they have been convicted.
The lates study came in 1996, and showed that resident aliens from Algeria, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia dominate the group of suspected men. The pattern in the new study is the same.
Commonalities between the four countries cited include islamic religion and arab ethnicity.
