Five teenage migrants from Afghanistan have been convicted of gang-raping a young boy in Sweden – but not a single one of them will be deported because their homeland is “too dangerous”.
The victim, who’s under 15, was filmed during the attack which happened in Uppsala, Sweden.
He was dragged out to a wooded area and beaten at knifepoint before being sexually assaulted for over an hour.
After the trial, the teens were found guilty of aggravated rape, but despite suggestions by the prosecution, they won’t be deported from Sweden because of their ages and the conditions in their homeland.
Four of the teens were given 15 months in jail, while the fifth was given a 13-month sentence.
The sexual assault occurred overnight on October 24th and 25th, and the video was posted on social media.
The victim, who was also from Afghanistan, went to authorities before the five suspects were detained on child rape charges.
All five denied playing part in the shocking incident, with one saying he wasn’t even there.
The teens, aged 16 and 17, “inflicted beatings” to the boy’s head and body before “grabbing the defendant, covering his mouth and dragging or carrying him into a woodland area”.
At this point, each of the suspects sexually assaulted the boy. The victim was also spat on and bitten on the back.
All of them, the victim and suspects, had arrived in Sweden as unaccompanied minors seeking asylum, which supposedly could be deported if convicted of a crime.
