A 15-year-old boy in Helsingborg was sentenced for having assaulted and threatened a boy because of his blue eye color.
According to the district court, the 15-year-old asked a Swedish boy about his eye color, whereupon the Swede answered "blue-green". An answer the15-year-old for unknown reason perceived as provocative.
"Are you trying to be tough? the 15-year-old asked, leaned over the table and gave the boy a slap.
Two witnesses say they saw the 15-year-old slap the boy in the face and said he continued to beat him during a school break. The 15-year-old was convicted for threats and the beatings, only to receive a fine.
The 15-year-old denied all charges and claimed that he has been misunderstood because of language difficulties, as his first language is Arabic.
The case was not classified as a hate crime.
