Terror Accused Swede Unlocated
The TT news agency reports that the authorities here have no idea about the current location of the Swede of Moroccan origin recently placed on the United Nations terrorist list.
A chief public prosecutor points out that there’s no reason to detain him, so he’s free to move around as he wishes. Being on the list means the 41 year old’s assets have been frozen and he is unable to work or collect welfare benefits.
He was placed on the list at American request in December, accused of contacts with al-Qaeda. TT says he was arrested in Denmark after the 2004 Madrid bombings, and is also suspected on involvement in a suicide bombing in Casablanca in 2003.
Three Swedes on Somali origin were placed on the list after the September 11th attacks. It took several years before they were taken off the list, despite demands from the Swedish authorities that evidence against them be produced.
