Sweden: Candlelit vigil for rape victims after Fittja gang rape acquittal

Protesters rallied in solidarity with rape victims throughout Sweden at a candlelit vigil in Fittja, a district of Stockholm, on Saturday. Fittja hit headlines recently, after a judge acquitted five men charged with gang rape, ruling that there was insufficient evidence to prosecute. The court's decision sparked a wave of protests in Sweden. Activists have called for reform of the judicial... Еще system and the way it treats sexual assault cases. Social worker Sara Voldo was critical of the judge's ruling; «I am completely sure that they were set free due to the fact that the woman is an addict, living without safety net and if it would have been a normal girl with a job, a place to live, they would have been convicted», she said.
