Last August I reported on a particularly horrific crime committed by culture-enrichers in a cemetery in the Swedish town of Solna, north of Stockholm. Two underage boys were beaten, robbed, tortured, and raped by two men with a “migration background”. The perpetrators attempted to bury the boys alive.
The two men, one Iranian and the other an Arab, were convicted and sentenced to nine years and five years respectively. The article below refers to the sentence as a long one by Swedish standards, which indeed it is: in Sweden that’s really throwing the book at ’em.
What’s amazing, however, is that the appeals court upheld the sentence. Mind you, I don’t know how much of the time they will actually serve.
Solna torturers’ sentence upheld
March 30, 2021
The Middle Eastern pair humiliated, robbed and raped two boys in a cemetery in Solna. Now their — by Swedish standards — long sentences have been upheld by the appeals court.
The men have been sentenced for, among other things, kidnapping, aggravated abuse, aggravated rape, and robbery of two teenagers in the Norra cemetery in Solna last summer.
The appeals court affirmed the district court’s sentence of 9 years in prison for the 21-year-old, who comes from Iran.
The 18-year-old Arab was sentenced by the district court, and now by the appeals court also for another robbery. As to this robbery, however, the appeals court found that the sentencing guideline was somewhat lower than that decided by the district court. The appeals court, therefore, lowered the sentence for the 18-year-old from five and a half years to five years in prison.
Otherwise, the appeals court has mainly upheld the district court’s judgment.
