Sweden: Three Syrians who beat gay couple in Gothenburg convicted; one jailed while all three avoid deportation

Three Syrian migrants who beat and abused a gay couple holding hands at Gothenburg Central Station have been convicted of assault and hate crimes by Sweden’s second largest city’s district court.

Despite their convictions, the three perpetrators, all of whom have prior criminal records, were not slapped with any deportation orders by the judge.

The incident which led to the attack began on the night of April 7 when the newly arrived migrants — 21-year-old Abdel Rahman Wakaa, 21, 21-year-old Hamod Suleyman, and 23-year-old Abdullah Alaswad — shouted anti-gay obscenities at two men holding hands as they arrived at Gothenburg Central Station from Malmo, Nyheter Idag reports.

When the couple stopped walking and turned around to address the Syrians’ behavior, the gang spared no time, and immediately began brutally  assaulting the two men. CCTV surveillance cameras captured the entire attack.  

The two victims, during an interview with police, told officers that the group of Syrians told them because they’re gay they shouldn’t be out in public.Read MORE
