Swedish Coffin Smasher Acquitted

Published tisdag 9 juni 2009 kl 12.21

A Swedish grave digger in northern Sweden has been cleared of charges of defiling bodies by smashing coffins with his earth remover before burial - so that the soil would not settle after the coffin collapsed.

The court ruled that man assumed his employers knew what he was doing.

The defendant had insisted that the practice was authorized by his bosses and was common all over Sweden - yet he was the only one charged with a crime after a Swedish television news crew filmed him in action.
