Emma R., Voice of Europe, August 11, 2019
An increased tendency to report and “more dating apps”. That is the reason why rapes are skyrocketing in Sweden, according to the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention, Brå, and TV4 News.
According to TV4 News, the number of reported rapes has increased from 3,577 in the first six months of 2018, to 4,070 during the same period this year. That is almost 500 more rapes (which equals an increase of 14 percent).
“Our assessment is that there is primarily an increased tendency to report, but also that there have been changes in our social lives, in the form of more dating apps that make us meet people that we don’t know so well” says Stina Holmberg from Brå, to TV4 News.
