I can’t classify as official “cultural enrichment”, since the newspaper report fails to mention the ethnicity or immigrant status of last year’s rapists. However, it’s worth remembering that in the five years previous to 2011, all stranger-rapes in Oslo in which the perp could be identified were committed by Muslim immigrants.
As The Observer notes:
I’m sending you a translated article regarding the number of reported rapes in Norway in the first eleven months of 2011. Notice that the majority of the rapes occur in Oslo.
I wonder why…
The translated article from Dagbladet:
Over 100 rapes reported in 2011
The real number is probably higher.
More than 100 assault rapes and attempted rapes were reported to the police in Norway between January and November 2011.
NRK (Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation) has studied figures obtained from every single police precinct in Norway which shows that 109 assault rapes and attempted assault rapes took place in the first 11 months of 2011.
The numbers are probably higher because of underreporting.
This year has seen the highest numbers of rape victims treated at the sexual assault clinic in Oslo.
Most cases take place in the capital. Last year 53 assault rapes and attempted rapes were reported from January through November last year in the capital. This is twice as many cases as in all of 2010.
The leader of the vice section of the Oslo police, Hanne Kristin Rohde believes that there has been a significant increase in the number of sexual assault. “But we also believe that there has been an increase in the number of reported cases which means that more women are willing to go to the police and report these assaults,” says Rohde.
