Migrant Accused of Child Rape in Sweden: ‘Nobody Told Me it Was Illegal!’
The incident took place in April 2019 at a family home with the young girl
A migrant in Sweden accused of raping and sexually a young girl has argued that he didn't know it was illegal in the country because no-one had told him.
The incident took place in April 2019 at a family home with the young girl, whose exact age is yet to be disclosed.
According to Lokaltidningen newspaper, it was alleged she was forced to have sex with he 17-year-old migrant.
When questioned by police, the migrant reportedly admitted he had sex with the girl but said that it had not been a crime and was just something that “happened between two children.”
While the migrant did admit to the crime, it was argued in an Administrative court that he was not aware of the laws regarding sexual relations with children.
It was also argued that no-one in Sweden had taught him what the laws were.
The representative said the court should not proceed with a prosecution, citing the migrant's high school grades and his progress would be harmed if he faced prosecution.
But the court did not agree with the representative, stating the migrant may now face prosecution for the rape of a child.

Suspicions that the migrant may actually over 20-years-old was also revealed by investigators.
The Swedish government, last year, announced a plan known as the “high school law” which permitted around 9,000 Afghan “children” to remain in Sweden despite reports that 78 percent of them were adults.
According to recent reports, 90 percent of migrants from Morocco, who are claiming asylum in Sweden, are actually adults.
A large number of Moroccan nationals arrive in European countries claiming to be "unaccompanied minors."
Last week, Neon Nettle reported the Swedish government announced plans to employ hundreds of new police officers to tackle the rising epidemic of sexual offenses against children.
The head of the police’s national operational department, Mats Löfving said the move was an essential first step.
“For me, this is incredibly big; I think it is the biggest and most important investment I have had in my time in the police."
"It is perhaps the most vulnerable group that we are helping, women and children, who are exposed to violent and sexual offenses,” Sveriges Radio reports.
