Sweden to step up hunt for war criminals

Published måndag 29 januari 2007 kl 10.34
Swedish War Criminal, Jackie Arklöv

A new group could be set up to find suspects hiding in the country.

Currently there are twenty-four preliminary investigations into suspected crimes against humanity and there are now calls from the Police, the Immigration Service and international prosecutors for a new central unit to deal with them.

The Swedish police have admitted for some time that they do not have the necessary means to find war criminals hiding in the country.

Only one has been sentenced here so far and that was Swede Jackie Arklöv, who was found guilty of torturing muslims in Bosnia during the war there in the early 90s.
