Policeman in cake scandal
A policeman from the south of Sweden who was convicted of accepting bribes after receiving a cake has appealed against the ruling.
He was found guilty of telling a student that had had his trombone stolen, that policemen tend to work harder if they get a cake as a reward.
The student promised to deliver the cake if his trombone, worth over 6 thousand US dollars, was recovered. When it was eventually found the policeman called the student telling him who should get the cake, where it should be ordered from, and what should be in it.
The court ordered him to pay a fine of 80 days salary, which he is now appealing against.
