Denmark Sees Drastic Over-Representation of Foreigners in Rape 'Explosion'

About a quarter of those convicted of rape in Denmark in 2020 were foreigners and lacked Danish citizenship. This marked over-representation has prompted the authorities to pursue deportation whenever possible.

Over the past eight years, the number of both charges and convictions for rape in Denmark has gone through the roof, according to a new statement from the Justice Ministry.

More specifically, in 2020, 987 charges were filed for rape throughout the country. That is more than twice as many charges as eight years ago, in 2012, when 417 charges were filed. Over the same period, the number of convictions also increased quite markedly. Last year, judgements were handed down in 217 cases against only 132 verdicts in 2012. Remarkably, both charges and convictions have been rising steadily each year.
