SWEDEN: Minister of Justice Morgan Johansson declines the Moderates' proposal to investigate the ethnicity of rapists. He believes that the party is blaming immigrants when it really is about the perpetrators being "men."
On Monday, the Moderates announced that they wanted to see a new comprehensive mapping of sexual offenses in Sweden.
The investigation should include the perpetrators ethnic background, because, according to the party, it is important to know who are committing these crimes.
The party demands that the government gets the Crime Prevention Council (BRÅ) to commission a new investigation. But the government has previously said no to such an investigation. And that line seems to hold.
Morgan Johansson agrees that there is a need for a larger mapping of sex offenses. But it should not include ethnic backgrounds, he points out.
"The common denominator of those who commit these crimes is that they are men," Morgan Johansson told TT, pointing out that it does not matter whether a perpetrator is black or white.
Johansson also believes that the so-called #Metoo campaign shows that sexual offenses are everywhere.
A report released by BRÅ in 1996 showed that people from certain immigrant groups, especially from the Arab world, are very over-represented as perpetrators in rapes. Some of them have an over-representation of 20. The number of men with a background in the Arab world has risen sharply in Sweden in recent decades - but the issue has become taboo and BRÅ has since the 1990s chosen not to follow up the connection between ethnic background and the inclination to rape.
Earlier this year, Peter Springare, police investigator and former deputy head of the Division for serious crimes at the police in Örebro, revealed in a Facebook post who the vast majority of rapist are.
"This I have handled Monday-Friday this week: Rape, rape, aggravated rape, assault, rape, extortion, blackmail, abuse of judicial procedure, threats, violence against the police, threat to the police, drug trafficking, aggravated drug offenses, attempted murder, rape again, extortion again and beatings.
Suspected perpetrators; Ali Mohamad Mahmod, Mohammed, Mohammed Ali, again, again, again, Christoffer ... huh, it is true. Yes a Swedish name popped into the outskirts of a drug offense, Mohammed Mahmod Ali, again and again.
Countries represented this week, all crimes: Iraq, Iraq, Turkey, Syria, Afghanistan, Somalia, Somalia, Syria again, Somalia, unknown country, unknown country, Sweden. Half of the suspects, we can not know for sure because they have no valid papers. Which in itself often means that they lie about the nationality and the identity."
This is why the Swedish government plain out refuses to get the facts on the table.
