Last Saturday a norwegian woman in her 30’s told police that she was raped by two men in a pirate taxi in Trondheim. The victim explained that she was picked up by a pirate taxi and that the two men in the car raped her, thereafter dropped her off and drove away. The woman approached a random resident and asked for help.
The victim described the men as about 170 centimeters tall, in their 30’s and of foreign origin. The woman was allegedly raped repeatedly, and the police regard the assault as very serious.
Norway is suffering from a wave of rapes that are largely being perpetrated by immigrants against norwegian women.
The police has in the recent years received several reports of sexual assaults or attempted sexual assaults in connection with the pirate taxis.
– We do not recommend the use of pirate taxis, said Egen, Crime Watch leader to VG newspaper.
Amazingly a police report released last year, states that every single solved case of assault rape in the country in 2010 was carried out by a muslim immigrant. Many of the perpetrators who commit these rapes are on the edge of society often unemployed, or refused permanent stay in Norway.
In the past five years it has often been asylum seekers who are perpetrators of sexual assaults.
This is nothing new. A report in the Aftenposten, a norwegian newspaper, in 2001 stated that while 65 percent of those charged with rape are classed as coming from a non-western background, this segment makes up only 14.3 percent of Oslo’s population. Norwegian women were the victims in 80 percent of the cases.
The Norwegian police claims that lack of resources and funding is to blame for the rise in rapes.
Many Norwegians feel that the government has failed to provide proper funding to combat the crisis. They have questioned the government’s obssession with foreign aid and providing generous benefit packages to asylum seekers at the expense of funding the protection of the people.
