One of the African asylum seekers from Eritrea who was present when a woman in Ludvika was brutally gang-raped, is now granted SEK 140,000 ($15,800) in damages from the Swedish taxpayers. This despite the fact that he participated in the rape and even forcefully kissed the woman, reports the local newspaper Dala-Demokraten.
The gang-rape took place in central Ludvika at 00.30 the night of Saturday, October 17th last year.
The woman was on her way home and met several African men who asked her for cigarettes. One of the Africans followed her and dragged her into an alley, where he asked her to give him a kiss.
- No, I have boyfriend, the woman explained, but to no avail, as the African man pushed his tongue into her mouth.
Then suddenly the other two African men came, and the woman thought they would come to her rescue. Instead, the Africans formed a ring around the woman, pulled down her pantyhose and panties and subjected her to both anal and vaginal rape while they took turns holding her down.
The woman was shocked and screamed for help during the gang-rape, which lasted fifteen to twenty minutes. Finally a Swedish man came to the scene and asked the Eritreans what they were doing, which led to the men scatter in different directions.
She was found on the ground with her panties and pantyhose pulled down.
- I was in panic and completely destroyed, the woman told during the hearing.
The district court sentenced the three Eritreans to four years each in prison for aggravated rape. But the Court of Appeal chose to free the men because the victim described "one of the men as more passive during the rape," and thus it decided that all three would therefore be acquitted, writes Dala-Demokraten.
"The Court of Appeal claims there is no evidence that he somehow has been involved. Nor it is considered proven who did what, even if the Court of Appeal also speculates about it. The conclusion is that no one can be convicted," writes the newspaper.
And now one of the Africans is awarded damages by the Attorney General. He will receive SEK 140,000 for the time he was detained, according to the State's decision, reports Dala-Demokraten.
According to the newspaper, even the other convicted rapists will receive damages on the Swedish taxpayers' expense.
This is another strange and outrageous ruling coming out of the Swedish juridical system lately, and it comes just weeks after a court acquitted six asylum seekers for the gang-rape of a woman bound to wheelchair, with the reasoning that she didn't fight back hard enough or made a miracle and ran away, leaving the wheelchair behind.
The incident led the inhabitants of the island Gotland to protest, which in turn put the establishment into red alert, so they sent police reinforcements, including riot police, to the island to stop a brewing revolt.
The gang-rape of the woman in Ludvika is not the first in the area. A few months before the rape, another gang-rape took place in an apartment in the small town, which has about 15,000 inhabitants. Also on that occasion the perpetrators were African asylum seekers.
