Swedish Supreme Court Snubs Group Sex Abuse Case

The Swedish Supreme Court’s refusal to take up a controversial group sexual abuse case of a 13-year-old girl has angered the family and supporters  – and captured nation-wide headlines.

A lower court freed 2 of the men involved in the case and gave lenient sentences to the other 2 suspects.

The acquitals and the low sentences had sparked a highly unusual campaign to collect nearly a million Swedish kronor to pay for court costs in the case of the girl’s family loosing the legal battle at the Supreme Court.

The collected money is now to be given to shelters for abused and battered women.
