Valjakkala Released

Published tisdag 26 februari 2008 kl 11.25

Triple-murderer Juha Valjakkala has been released. 

After over 19 years imprisonment in Finland and several escape attempts, Valjakkala, under heavy supervision, is now training for life outside his prison cell.  If all goes well he will be released with restrictions in July.

The final decision of the Helsinki Court failed to cause strong emotions amongst the citizens of Åmsele in northern Sweden, where the brutal murders were committed in 1988.  A wave of fear passed over the Swedish village in 2002 when the convicted murderer escaped while on leave and headed back to the scene of the crime.  Now the village feels it is leaving the tragedy behind.

Valjakkala, who now goes under another name, has been suspended for life from visiting Sweden.
