21-year-old Mohamed from Afghanistan was sentenced to deportation for a brutal rape of a 14-year-old Swedish girl. But in custody he claims that he converted to Christianity and was therefore quickly granted permanent residency because Christians risk persecution in his home country.
The Afghani citizen came to Sweden five years ago as a so-called “unaccompanied child refugee” (many are in their 20’s) and sought asylum. His asylum application was denied by the authorities who decided that he should be deported.
Instead of enforcing the deportation order Mohamed was allowed to remain in Sweden as an illegal immigrant until the errand was prescribed.
Raped a 14-year-old Swedish girl
As a result of the authorities in question failing to enforce the deportation order Mohamed was able to ply a 14 year-old Swedish girl with liquor and rape her at a parking lot in Falun back in 2013.
When the girl was intoxicated the 21-year-old Afghani pinned her arms down and carried out oral sex. The victim tried to defend herself but the perpetrator dragged her along the ground and the rape continued. According to a testimonial from the court the girl was practically unconscious. Mohamed denied the crime but the court nonetheless sentenced him to two years and six months in jail for aggravated rape of a child.
The court assessed that the punishment for an adult perpetrator was the equivalent of four years in jail but when his age was taken into consideration he was given a so-called “penalty discount” hence the shorter sentence. Fortunately the court also decided that he should be deported for ten years.
At the time Mohamed was living with a Swedish family in Falun. The man in the family described him as “a calm and nice guy who is helpful and incredibly humble”. He claimed that the 14-year-old girl had “followed” Mohamed during a longer period of time and that the rape accusations were a way for her to “punish him”.
Converted to Christianity in custody
When he was sitting out his sentence Mohamed applied for permanent residency once again but this time claimed that he had converted from Islam to Christianity – after he was being detained for rape.
Throughout the new asylum investigation he could, according to the authorities, “not answer the most elementary questions surrounding Christianity” despite, according to his own accounts, having visited Church every Sunday for the past five years. When asked by the Migration Bureau what the Afghani had been thinking when he converted to another religion and thereby subjected himself to serious risk when it was time for him to return to Afghanistan the 21-year-old answered that he “hadn’t been thinking at all”.
Impregnated his cousin when he was 11-years-old
According to Mohamed he was 11-years-old when he impregnated his cousin and therefore risked reprisals in his home country. When the case was being appealed he referred to an Afghani identification document – the same document that he earlier in the asylum process had claimed went up in flames. During the asylum investigation he gave new information about his identity.
In April 2015 the Migration Bureau decided that the 21-year-old shouldn’t be granted permanent residency. The authority was sceptical to the mans contradictory claims and decided to deny his application and deport him. But the 21-year-old appealed and the Migration Court changed the decision – and granted him permanent residency.
Granted permanent residency in Sweden – despite deportation
The Migration Court thought that the man’s claims appeared credible and that he, due to his newfound Christian faith, risked persecution in his homeland of Afghanistan. He was therefore granted permanent residency status and by extension lifetime welfare support by the Swedish taxpayer.
“His faith cannot be practiced in Afghanistan because he then risks being subject to persecution. He has previously been convicted of aggravated sexual crimes in Sweden. The crimes are, however, not of such a nature that he is excempt from the refugee conventions. NN’s appeal should therefore be approved and he shall be granted permanent residency and refugee status.” wrote the court.
But last week the District Court concluded that the Migration Court must change their decision.
The decision was illegal
According to a paragraph in the foreigner law an asylum seeker who has been sentenced to deportation can only get a permanent residency permit if he/she has previously had a temporary residency permit for at least five years. The 21-year-old has not had that and a new decision will be made regarding whether he will be able to stay in the country after sitting out his sentence and being granted the opportunity to live on welfare.
Mohamed is actually called something else.
Middle Easterners and Africans are overrepresented as rapists in the Nordic Countries
Sweden – Rapists from the Middle East and Africa overrepresented up to 23x compared to natives.
Finland – Rapists from the Middle East overrepresented 13x whilst Africans are
overrepresented 12x compared to natives.
Norway – In Oslo, 2007-2010, 100% of perpetrators convicted of assault rape had non-Western Background and were often asylum seekers.
Denmark – 51.5% of convicted rapists had immigrant background, with Iraqis, Iranians, Turks, and Somalis, being dramatically overrepresented.
