Between 2006 and 2009 14,123 rape cases were taken to court, but 49% of these cases were eventually dismissed without further consequences for the suspects involved.
In over half of these cases this happened due to lack of evidence. In 12% of cases it was concluded that no crime had been committed, while in a further 18% of cases the perpetrator was unknown.
By mid-2010 only 2,600 of the 14,123 cases had been settled. In three-quarters of these cases there was a conviction, while 11% of defendants were acquitted. In the remaining cases an interim verdict was delivered or the verdict was delayed.
