Official figures from Statistics Sweden and a legal database have revealed that nearly a quarter of individuals named ‘Ali’ who live in Sweden have a criminal record, a new report from Samhällsnytt has revealed.
A quick search in Statistics Sweden’s database revealed that 40,790 people with the name Ali as their first or surname are currently living in Sweden. Another search in Lexbase – a website and database that allows users to perform searches on people and companies who’ve been the subject of criminal trials – for the name Ali, rendered 9,742 hits.
The data clearly reveals that nearly a quarter (24 percent) of those living in Sweden with the name Ali have criminal convictions.
In their investigative research, Samhällsnytt discovered similar results for other Islamic names.
For example, 26,867 people by the name of Ahmed are listed in Statistics Sweden’s database. A quick search for the name Ahmed in Lexbase yielded 4,944 hits, meaning that nearly one in four people with the name Ahmed living in Sweden have criminal records.
