New government data revealed that 58% of the men convicted of rape in Sweden were foreign born.
The numbers are shocking, yet not surprising. According to data from Swedish national TV, SVT, around 58 per cent of men convicted in Sweden of rape and attempted rape over the past five years were born abroad.
SVT says they counted all court convictions to present a complete picture. Unfortunately there is no ethnic breakdown for the reported rapes, which are thousands more.
Immigration and crime are major issues in Sweden’s general election which takes place on 9 September.
