One of the African asylum seekers from Eritrea who was present when a woman in Ludvika was brutally gang-raped, is now granted SEK 140,000 ($15,800) in damages from the Swedish taxpayers. This despite the fact that he participated in the rape and even forcefully kissed the woman, reports the local newspaper Dala-Demokraten.

The gang-rape took place in central Ludvika at 00.30 the night of Saturday, October 17th last year.

The woman was on her way home and met several African men who asked her for cigarettes. One of the Africans followed her and dragged her into an alley, where he asked her to give him a kiss.

- No, I have boyfriend, the woman explained, but to no avail, as the African man pushed his tongue into her mouth.

Then suddenly the other two African men came, and the woman thought they would come to her rescue. Instead, the Africans formed a ring around the woman, pulled down her pantyhose and panties and subjected her to both anal and vaginal rape while they took turns holding her down

The district court sentenced the three Eritreans to four years each in prison for aggravated rape. But the Court of Appeal chose to free the men because the victim described "one of the men as more passive during the rape," and thus it decided that all three would therefore be acquitted, writes Dala-Demokraten
