Rape Culture?

'Hundreds' of rapes 'hidden' by Danish police

Police statistics have hidden a huge number of reports of rape, with as many as 700 per year being filed incorrectly.

Denmark recorded an average of 395 rape cases every year up to 2014. But an investigation by the Ministry of Justice has revealed the actual number to be closer to 1,100 annually, Metroxpress reported on Thursday.


Red-Green Alliance (Enhedslisten) MP Pernille Skipper said she wasn't surprised by the revelation either.

“Unfortunately, this reflects what we are hearing from women that tell us that the police are sending them home,” she told Metroxpress.
