An anodine report from the Swedish edition of the Local and something a little more hard-hitting from Breitbart
ive men, including two believed to be accessories to murder, have been arrested on suspicion of gang raping a girl on-board a special, high school kids-only pleasure cruise in Sweden. Four men aged between 18 and 19 were arrested when the luxury MS Galaxy landed after its cruise to Finland on Wednesday, with a fifth arrested yesterday. They are all accused of gang-raping an unidentified woman, and face charges of aggravated rape.
The prosecutor has given no more detail about the crime or the victim, and was initially even reluctant to disclose that it was a woman who had been raped. Silja Lines confirmed to several Swedish newspapers that a woman had reported a rape on board one of its boats and said it was cooperating with officers investigating the allegations.
Although the politically-correct Swedish police have gone to their usual lengths to obscure the identities and nationalities of the suspected perpetrators, a mistake by Sweden’s largest newspaper has revealed the men to be migrants.
A film crew from newspaper Aftonbladet interviewed a number of students boarding the ship as it prepared to sail earlier this week for a feature on the cruise. Of the 1,700 young people who sailed they by chance ended up interviewing two of the attackers.
The footage was released by the paper accidentally to their website and later taken down, but a screenshot was preserved of the men, censored by Friatider to comply with Swedish law.
The trip was organized by Nordic company Fun Cruises and hosted by Silja Lines. The former describes its student events on its website as offering travellers the chance to enjoy “a crazy action packed day at sea” on a “ship filled with students from all over the country”. When contacted by Swedish media earlier about the rape allegations the travel company said all questions should be directed to the ferry firm.
In a further development, it has been revealed one of the men has a previous conviction and two of the men arrested for the gang-rape are suspects in a separate criminal case, a high-profile murder in Stockholm dating back to November 2015. None of those men arrested were born in Sweden. They deny all charges of aggravated rape.
The latest incident is among several alleged gang rapes on Baltic cruises to grab the headlines in recent years.
