Second Swedish police officer blows whistle on migrant crime cover-up

A second Swedish police officer has blown the whistle on a government cover-up of migrant crime. In a groundswell of public support, it has led to Swedes demanding a national conversation on the issue, a "Swedish Spring" after a first Facebook message on the issue went viral.

    Tomas Åsenlöv, a police officer for Greater Gothenburg, revealed how police have been told to implement a “Code 291” procedure in order to cover-up information about crimes committed by migrants.

    “The Swedish public has to be told all the facts now,” Åsenlöv wrote on Facebook, explaining that Code 291 is used to hide “all information about the immigration-related crime,” including a ban on releasing photos of migrant suspects in public.

    “I understand that the younger officers may not dare to go out and criticize the leaders, or go out openly and support Peter. Then it is over for a future career. Then, when they apply for jobs, they will be classed as disloyal to the employer,” says Åsenlöv.

    Åsenlöv hopes the situation could change: “Now I believe that the ball has started rolling and maybe we can get the leaders to open their eyes and no longer deny the truth.”

    His testimony comes only days after a Swedish top cop was called “racist” for exposing the origin of the crime wave.

    Peter Springare has been inundated with goodwill from citizens who have been sending him flowers for his courage, but authorities ban members of the press from taking photos of the huge number of bouquets because “flowers represent a potential security threat”.

    In his original post, Springare says almost all of the suspects he processed when dealing with crimes such as rape, extortion, blackmail, abuse of judicial procedure, threats, violence against the police, drug trafficking, aggravated drug offenses and attempted murder, were called “Mohammed” or a variation of it.

    He also warned about how “our pensioners are on their knees, schools are in chaos, health care is an inferno, police have been completely destroyed,” as a result of soaring migrant crimes.

    Springare, a serious crime investigator in Örebro, wrote a Facebook post in which he described the “chaos” as a result of serious crimes being committed by Muslim migrants.

    “Half of the suspects, we can’t be sure because they don’t have any valid papers. Which in itself usually means that they’re lying about their nationality and identity. Now we are only talking about Örebro municipality.”

    Springare may now face charges simply for accurately pinpointing the problem. He has been reported to authorities over the remarks under Sweden’s strict “hate crime” laws and is facing an internal investigation on the grounds of “racial agitation”.

    Sweden’s Prime Minister Stefan Löfven also responded to the controversy, claiming that Springare’s assertions were “wrong”.

    While government authorities want to pursue Springare, the public and his fellow police officers have rallied around him. A Facebook page set up in support of Springare currently has over 130 000 likes.

    Swedish authorities have routinely turned a blind eye to soaring violent attacks, rapes, unprecedented numbers of cars that have been set on fire in major cities over recent months, and Sweden’s Islamic no-go ghettos.

    “I’m trying to point out a problem within the police force because I believe we are losing control over it. We are unable to tackle it, this violent crime,” Springare says.

    A request for data detailing the relationship between crime and immigration in Sweden has been blocked by the government. Justice minister Morgan Johansson denied the need for updated statistics on immigration and crime.

    Meanwhile a Swedish court sentenced a Muslim migrant to only two months in jail after being convicted of anally raping a 13-year-old girl, claiming his sentences for child rape and sexual exploitation should be lenient because the Syrian migrant claimed he was 17 when the rape occurred at a school in Jämtland County.

    But the Swedish court somehow accepts “Syrian papers” despite Swedish documents showing he was 18 when he entered the country.

    “The then-17-year-old man, who since turned 18, pulled a 13-year-old girl on one of the school’s toilets, locked the door and then raped her,” reported the Swedish newspaper Expressen. “During the trial, the convicted rapist’s age has been a major issue.”

    “His personal shows that he was born in 1998, and was 18 years old when the crimes were committed, but by his own admission he was born in 1999.”

    The sentence for a juvenile is typically 1/3 of an adult’s. Mohammed was also charged with another rape of a 14-year-old under similar circumstances, but the District Court claimed it was child abuse, not rape, because of the “degree of reciprocity.”

    No Swedish media outlets are reporting the crime in their English-language versions.

    In December, the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB) urged the country’s municipalities to prepare for war.
