A number of women who work with unaccompanied refugee children at HVB homes have been reported for the past two years for having had sexual relations with the youngsters they work with.

One of the coarser cases was discovered in Skövde in August this year. A woman who worked at a HVB home for refugee children spent the night fit for sex with several of the young people in the accommodation during their workout. According to one of the refugees, this happened “evening, night and morning when the woman was on duty.”
The woman should have tried to exert pressure on the refugee children via SMS and Facebook to encourage them to have sex with her. One of the youngsters eventually made an alarm about what happened to the accommodation during the nights and told another male employee. The youth tried to say no to the woman and stated very badly about what had happened.
According to Lex Sarah, the registered woman has a one-year integration education education. She has been able to have sex with the refugee child because she was alone with them on her part of the accommodation during the nights.
The case, which Expressen was the first to report last month, has been reported to the Ivo and the Police.
But Skövdefallet is just the tip of an iceberg. Since the summer of 2015, more notifications have been sent to Ivo, ranging from suspects to proven sexual relations between refugee children and female staff at different HVB homes in Sweden.
In one of the cases, which concerns an accommodation in Småland, Tranås, the employee himself has been told openly about the relationship. In a third case, from Åtvidaberg in January this year, it is the S-led municipal government who has been alarmed since suspicion of inappropriate sexual relations between the staff and the refugee child in an accommodation.
A fourth case concerns a HVB home in Borås where a female employee for an extended period had an intimate relationship with a 17-year-old boy.
News Today, a total of 10 cases have been reported in the last two years concerning sexual relations between young people and staff at HVB and family homes. Several of them are so heavily censored after they have been tested for confidentiality that it is difficult to distinguish what the cases are about. Others are detailed and contain no more information than an “inappropriate relationship”.
It is not all the attention-sensitive issues that lead to Lex Sarah notifications, and that Ivo is mixed in. This summer, SVT reported on how staff from a HVB home in Åmål partyed with refugee children and how one of the women gave one of the youngsters a “lapdance”.
– This is not okay, of course. That staff have such an approach to children they work with. It does not look professional, commented Maria Björklund, unit manager at Ivo.
However, that case has not resulted in any Lex Sarah notification, despite the fact that the municipality then stated that it was intended to do one. It is unclear how many discovered intimate relationships between staff and refugee children that did not lead to any notification.
