Migrant Who Raped Child Over 100 Times Escapes Deportation
Swedish court of appeal says man did not 'meet requirement' to be deported
A migrant convicted for raping a child more than 100 times had his deportation order overruled by a Swedish court of appeal, according to reports.
The migrant man began the abuse when the child was ten years old, resulting in him being convicted of rape and sexual abuse against children and sentenced to 12 years.
But the appeals court ruled that while the man was guilty of rape, he did not meet the requirements of the exceptional reasons for deportation from the country.
A prosecutor in the case since appealed the decision demanding the man be deported.
Meanwhile, a press release from the public prosecutor’s office, the man had lived in Sweden for around 22 years, a reason given by the court that he should not be expelled.
Another migrant from Syria was later arrested in connection to a rape case.
But due to the fact he became a citizen just months before, he's also unlikely to face deportation.

Populist Sweden Democrats member, Charlie Weimers, said of the case:
“This shows why the legislation needs to be amended so that a much longer period is required before someone can obtain citizenship."
"And also why a decision on citizenship should be provisional for the first five years.”
In August, the Göta Court of Appeal overturned the child rape conviction of another migrant from Afghanistan.
The court said the was not sufficient evidence to say the migrant knew the girl he had sex with was only 13.
But the migrant had ordered a bus ticket for the girl and entered her correct age, despite the court's ruling.
He claimed he put the age in order to get a discount on the pass, saying it was a coincidence that it happened to be her true age.
The migrant also avoided deportation.
