With 1.4 reported sexual offenses per 1,000 residents, six rapes every day, 2016 clearly gives the highest figure ever recorded with this type of statistics, according to Statistics Norway.
It was reported nearly 7,100 sexual offenses in Norway in 2016. It is 24 percent more than the previous year and an increase of 48 percent compared with 2014.
A total of 2,235 rapes were reported last year. That is more than six rapes every day, reports VG.
One explanation for the rise in reported rapes is that what was previously termed as sexual intercourse with children under 14 years, now is considered rape, according to Statistics Norway (SSB).
Last year there were registered 674 cases of rape of children under 14 years. It was also reported 1,561 cases of rape in which the victims were older than 14 years or where age was not stated. This includes 68 cases of particularly violent rape. In addition, 1,300 cases of sexual acts and 1,500 cases of sexually offensive behaviour were registered.
Overall, it was 1.4 sexual offenses per 1,000 residents reported last year, which is clearly the highest figure ever recorded with this type of statistics, according to Statistics Norway.
But if you now think that Ola, Håkon, Sverre and Per suddenly have decided to revert to the Viking era and start raping again, and that this has nothing to do with a certain imported culture, then you seriously could not be more wrong, which a policeman in Haugesund revealed last year, as a policeman in Sweden revealed recently:
