A woman has been suspended from her job at an accommodation for so called “unaccompanied minors” in the municipality of Skövde, Sweden, when she was suspected of having sex with several of the “young” people living there.

It was when one of the young people told he had sex with the woman several times when she was on duty, as a Lex Sarah-report was established. According to the report, the youth said that the woman had sex with several at the accommodation.

A police investigation is underway.

The Health and Social Care Inspectorate (IVO) is a government agency responsible for supervising health care, social services and activities under the Act concerning Support and Service for Persons with Certain Functional Impairments (LSS).

IVO is also responsible for issuing certain permits in these areas. Its supervision remit covers the processing of complaints concerning, for example, the reporting of irregularities in health care and social care (called lex Sarah and lex Maria reports) and the municipal obligation to report non-enforced decisions.
