The brochure was published by the Swedish board of health and immigration, gave advice to newly arrived immigrants who may be involved in a marriage with a minor advising them that it is “inappropriate” to live with their underage spouse.

“We thought it would be helpful. These thirteen year old girls have very small vaginas” said Stur MosBitter.

Swedish politician Hanif Bali commented on the brochure on Facebook saying that it did not list the consequences for breaking the law. He added that many of the countries where the migrants come from in fact do not have lax laws in regards to child marriage.

“The cases raised by the media have been Syrian citizens, even cousins. Fourteen-year-old girls have been made pregnant by their ‘husbands’,” he said and added: “In Syria, the punishment for this is nine years’ imprisonment and hard labour.”
