Sweden's Prosecutor-General wants the Supreme Court to try the case of a man who examined his girlfriend's genitals to set a precedent for what can be considered a sexual act.

The man, who examined the woman to see if she had been unfaithfaul, was originally ruled to have raped her, a verdict the court of appeals later changed to illegal coercion.

"We think there is an uncertainty in judicial practice, and that this is such a serious crime that the distinction needs to be made," My Hedström at the Prosecutor-General's office told news agency TT.
