Judges Reduce Sentence of LGBT Activist Convicted of Raping Male Asylum Seekers


A Swedish former LGBT association employee convicted of raping and sexually abusing several male asylum seekers has had his sentence reduced after an appeal.

The man, 56-year-old Pablo Leiva, was sentenced to just four years after being convicted of five rapes and two counts of sexual assault on male asylum seekers between 2018 and 2019, while he worked for the Swedish Federation for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Intersex Rights (RFSL).

According to a report from Swedish broadcaster SVT, an appeal court had reduced the sentence to three years and four months due to the fact the man had been fired from his job as a result of the case.

The appeal court also questioned whether or not two of the counts of rape had not been voluntary and acquitted the 56-year-old of the two counts, saying it was not proven that the asylum seekers participated unwillingly.
