Three jailed for Nordic ferry gang rape

Victim taken to cabin on Viking Cinderella ferry
Three men have been put behind bars for four years each, for the gang rape of a young woman on a ferry to the Åland Islands. The men denied committing an offence.
The victim was said to be drunk as the men took her to a cabin on Viking Line’s Cinderella ferry in February, a court in Södertörn, Sweden, heard. During the assault they also beat and scratched her and gripped her throat.
The three men claim the woman was not coerced into intercourse. But the court found the woman’s testimony credible, supported by a medical certificate after the incident that documented her injuries.
The woman’s lawyer said she felt the court should have handed out longer sentences, four years being the minimum sentence for aggravated rape in Sweden.
