The three males were jailed after a night of "pack hunting," during which time they sexually assaulted three women in Cambridge, England.
All three were briefly imprisoned for their crimes -- less than one year. Now released, they are demanding the British government award them with asylum. Lawyers for the convicted rapists are making the appeal in their behalf, using Britain's human rights laws.
The men were serving in the British military at the time of the assaults.

Three Libyans jailed for molesting women in a drunken rampage are seeking asylum in Britain.
The soldiers, who have served short sentences in UK prisons, are thought to be using legal aid to lodge their claims.
They say they risk persecution if sent home because their crimes have brought Libya into disrepute.The case shows yet again how human rights laws can scupper the deportation of foreign offenders.
The fiasco is also a blow to David Cameron who had said the soldiers should not be allowed to stay here.
In a book serialised by the Mail last week the Prime Minister was criticised by top brass for his 2011 Libyan intervention. That intervention led to the disastrous training scheme that brought the soldiers here and cost taxpayers £15 million.
Richard Scorer, a solicitor representing one of the four women who were attacked, said: ‘She, like the other victims, assumed as soon as these men had completed their sentences they would be deported.
‘My client was dismayed and shocked to learn of the asylum applications. Like us, she is struggling to understand how men who came to this country as guests of our country and abused this hospitality could possibly be making these applications.
‘She, and we, think it is totally and utterly unacceptable.’ He said asylum applications were normally made on the basis that the applicant had a ‘general and justifiable fear of persecution in their home country’.
Lawyers representing the soldiers are also expected to argue their lives would be at risk from Islamic State fanatics in Libya.
Khaled El Azibi, Ibrahim Naji El Maarfi and Mohammed Abdalsalam were among 300 recruits who came to the UK under an arrangement to train them to restore security to their country. Two other cadets were jailed for 12 years each for raping a man in a park in Cambridge on the same day the women were sexually assaulted.
Cambridgeshire Police confirmed the three men have been released from prison and are being held at secure immigration units.
Even if their applications are unsuccessful they are likely to extend their time in the UK by months and possibly years – all at great cost.
Four Libyans applied for asylum before the training programme at ex-RAF Bassingbourn was closed down, bringing the total to seven.
Cambridge Labour MP Daniel Zeichner said: ‘It does seem possible that these people may not be sent back because it is not safe for them.
