Five Afghan teens who filmed themselves gang-raping a boy under the age of 15 will not be deported from Sweden — because they would be “hit very hard” by such a punishment.
On October 24-25, five Afghan teens in the Gottsunda area of Sweden held a boy at knife-point, beat him and dragged him into the woods, then attacked and gang-raped him for about an hour.
The Afghans have been found guilty of aggravated rape, but instead of being deported, they will serve sentences between 13-15 months. These child rapists cannot be deported, because they would be “hit very hard” as Afghanistan is unsafe, the court said.
The rapists, between the ages of 16-18, came to Sweden as unaccompanied minor asylum seekers. Video of the rape was apparently posted on social media.
A lawyer for one of the perpetrators claims that his client doesn’t remember anything that happened because he was too drunk.
