Three Africans film and share on social media their prolonged bloody group violence of a 13-year-old girl in Vasteras, Fria Tider reports.
But now the court of appeals chooses to nearly halve their punishment – from eight months to four and five months of youth detention. A fourth rapist can not be punished because he is said to be a child.
On 14 June 2017 a 13-year-old girl was raped in a flat in Västerås. The three Somalis, reportedly born in 2000, were each sentenced in April for rape against a child to eight months of youth detention.
The judgement was appealed and the prosecutor demanded the perpetrator be punished.
Instead, Svea Hovrätt has chosen to severely lower their penalty, and furthermore, release one of the Somalis from the charge of child pornography, as it is unclear from the video if the girl has completed puberty.
Two are now sentenced to five months in juvenile detention, with the third released having served only four months.
