Gang rapists permitted to remain because home country “too dangerous”
Shocking official statistics from Sweden have revealed only 13 percent of foreigners found guilty of raping children are being deported to their home countries.
The foreign nationals tried and convicted of some of the most horrific crimes imaginable are being allowed to stay in the country.
Government figures from 2010 to 2014 reveal even rapists who aren’t registered as Swedish residents are not being kicked out of the country.
It comes just months after five Afghan teenagers were convicted of gang-raping a boy in Sweden – but none of them will be deported because their homeland is ‘too dangerous’.

The data produced by the Swedish national government looks at foreign nationals registered as living in the country as residents, as well as illegal immigrants.
Figures look at convictions of foreign nationals and show the shocking number of those being deported for horrific crimes.
The stand-out statistics from between 2010 and 2014 are:
- 19 percent of foreign nationals registered as Swedish residents convicted of rape were deported
- 19 percent of foreign nationals registered as Swedish residents convicted of aggravated rape were deported
- 13 percent of foreign nationals registered as Swedish residents convicted of child rape were deported
- 17 percent of foreign nationals registered as Swedish residents convicted of aggravated rape of a child were deported
The number of deportees increased when it came to foreign nationals who had not been registered as Swedish residents.
In rape cases, 63 percent of those found guilty were extradited and 73 percent in aggravated rape cases.
When it came to child rape, a shocking 48 percent of those found guilty and not registered as Swedish residents were allowed to stay in Sweden.
The deportation rate in aggravated rape cases involving a child was 67 percent.

In December, five attackers were found guilty of raping a boy.
All were from the same migrant centre.
The victim, who is under 15, was filmed during the attack, which happened in woodland in Uppsala, south east Sweden.
He was beaten and dragged out to the forest at knife-point before being subjected to an ordeal lasting more than an hour, prosecutors say.
After a trial, the teenagers were found guilty of aggravated rape – but despite requests by prosecutors, they were not expelled from Sweden because of their age and the dangers they would face in their homeland.
The court said that the boys would have been ‘hit very hard’ by deportation because of the security situation in Afghanistan.
Four of the defendants received jail terms of 15 months while the fifth was given 13 months, Expressen reports.
Prosecutors had claimed that one of the attackers filmed parts of the assault, overnight on October 24 and 25, and posted the footage on social media.
The victim, also from Afghanistan, went to police before five suspects were detained on child rape charges, it was reported in Sweden.

All five denied the accusations with one saying he was not present.
Two others said they did not remember what they were doing while the final pair made ‘some concessions’.
Court papers said the teenagers, aged 16 and 17, ‘inflicted beatings’ to the child’s head and body before ‘grabbing the defendant, covering his mouth and dragging or carrying him into a woodland area’.
At this point, the court papers say, each of the accused carried out serious sexual assaults on the child who was also bitten on the back and spat on.
