The principal at a Sweden school is taking some flack after reportedly brushing off a student’s rape report.
A female student went to the principal to report multiple instances of rape by a male student earlier this year, and the girl claims that the principal that it wasn’t a big deal.
The student claims the principal told her she could “file a police report” but that no action would likely be taken because “no serious crime has been committed.”
The principal reportedly added, “Guys do this kind of thing, you have to get used to it.”
According to a complaint filed by the girl to the country’s Schools Inspectorate, the agency responsible for the quality control of the school system, when the girl’s mother went in to question the principal about the alleged rapes, she was told that her daughter needed to “stop focusing on these trivialities.”
Sweden’s penal code defines rape as forced sex by violence or threat, including “causing helplessness” in the rape victim and having sex with the victim while they are sleeping.
