A review of all rape convictions in Denmark over the past year and a half shows that 10 out of 12 people convicted of violent rape in which the perpetrator did not know his victim are foreigners or their descendants.
“It’s absolutely horrible. And it shows that something is wrong with some immigrant communities in Denmark, “said Integration and Immigration Minister Inger Støjberg.
We spoke to several experts who offered explanations for why immigrants and their descendants are hugely overrepresented. One of them is Christian Diesen, a Professor of Law at Stockholm University. He studied the overrepresentation of foreigners in rape cases in Sweden. “The reason is poor integration,” Prof. Diesen said. “They do not feel that they are part of society, so they soon become outsiders and despise society and other people.”
