More far right controversial utterances in Sweden: Sweden Democrats want to castrate boys
Tuesday, 11 September 2012
The Swedish far right party want to castrate youths who commit sexual
violence or rape. This is the view aired out by one of the party's
official, the Chairman of the party's Härjedalen district in Jamtland,
He told the Swedish television: "I stand for it" after reacting to the
fate of four boys suspected and accused of sexual abuse of a
14-year-old girl. He would want the boys to be to be castrated and
deported, meaning that these boys are likely to be of immigrant
On the party's website, Ronny Karlsson who also has a place in the
Sweden Democrats' nominating committee follows that: "A 14-year-old
girl was exposed this weekend to a sexual abuse by four boys at a
playground in Rosengård. The Boys, all are aged under 15, have now been
interviewed by the police and the offense identified. The penalty must
be surgical castration and expulsion."
to the Swedish tabloid newspaper, Expressen, one of them is a 12 years
old. It is not yet determined if the boys are foreign nationals and the
case has been handed over to social services. But the fact that
the supposed crime happen around an immigrant dominated region in
Malmö, southern Sweden, the politician could have guessed that such
crimes can be committed only by foreigners.
Swedish television branch in the Jamtland, contacted the politician,
Ronny Karlsson for comment, but could not get anything. The newspaper,
Expo, which writes a lot about racial issues in Sweden said of Karlsson
that he did not want to comment on the proposal further, but that he
stands for what he wrote.
Sweden Democrats' press secretary, Martin Kinnunen, told Swedish
television that chemical castration is not something his party
advocates. Kinnunen thinks that Karlsson just threw out a spontaneous
comment without deeper analysis, but he would not go so far as to say
that the party rejects the statement.
"In general, one should be careful not to speculate about individual
crimes. We will handle the matter internally within the party," he says.
