The incident took place earlier this month in a Malmö courtroom, during the trial of those who are accused of filming and posting to social media the rape, torture, and humiliation of Friberg, which allegedly lasted for six hours. When the alleged rapists erupted into laughter as video footage of the abuse was being played for the court, Friberg stood up and made the Nazi salute. In response, the defendants became irate and had to be detained. The trial was subsequently adjourned.
Later that day, Friberg was charged with incitement against an ethnic group, which he was later found guilty of.
When asked by Kvállposten why he resorted to the use of this particular gesture, Kenny replied: “I did it because it was the quickest thing I could come up with to offend them, in the heat of the moment.”
The alleged crimes for which the trial was being held took place several years ago when the group of foreign perpetrators is said to have kidnapped Friberg, before going on to rape, torture, and humiliate him for six hours. During the six hours of humiliation and torture, the alleged perpetrators are said to have anally raped Friberg with a bottle while also shoving a handgun into his mouth, among other things.
Somehow, amid the hours-long torture and humiliation, Friberg — convinced that he was going to die that night — managed to send his mother a text message, telling her that he loved her. The six hours of hell finally ended when Friberg managed to escape from his three captures by jumping in the Malmö canal.link
