Two 18-year-old Afghans have been convicted of brutally raping a Swedish woman who campaigned against the deportation of Afghan migrants.

The rape and sexual assault of the Swedish woman, said to be in her 40s, occurred on boxing day of last year when she met the pair of Afghans near a hotel in the city of Ljungby, the Daily Mail reports.

The men, later identified as Anwar Hassani and Fardi Hesari, spoke with the victim who showed interested in them after learning they had come from Afghanistan.

The three then returned to the migrants’ residence to have a drink and while there, Anwar Hassani began molesting her after she had laid down on a mattress.

Despite telling Hassani she was not interested in having sex with him, the Afghan sexually assaulted and rape her questioning why she had come back with them if she was not interested in sex.

Hassani asked Hesari, “Aren’t you going to rape?” in Farsi during the ordeal, according to Hesari’s police testimony.

While Hesari did not rape the victim, he did grope her while pleasuring himself as Hassani proceeded to penetrate the victim’s anus causing her to scream out in pain and the two Afghans to stop their assault.

After escaping the pair, the woman called an ambulance and was taken to a nearby hospital.

Both men were found guilty of sexual offences, with Hassani receiving a 15-month prison sentence and a 134,990SEK (£11,326) fine for rape, while Hesari was given a three month suspended sentence and a fine of 23,990SEK (£2,013).

Cases of gang rape in Sweden, according to both statistics reported by Breitbart London in 2017, and Swedish media a year later, show that migrants make up the overwhelming number of gang rapists.

Some in Sweden, like police officer Peter Springare, have warned that gang rape is a “cultural phenomenon” associated with migrants from certain backgrounds

Despite whistleblowers and limited studies into the subject, the Swedish government still refuses to publish any ethnic or migration background data of criminal suspects.
