Government Says Under-15 Should Not Escape Police Investigation

Published torsdag 11 december 2008 kl 11.29

Sweden’s government wants children under 15 to be tested for drugs and investigated for crimes.

Currently those under 15 are only referred to social services.

Now a study ordered by the centre-right government has recommended changes in the law.

Justice Minister Beatrice Ask says that this move is important for the victims of crime and will also help young criminals to change their ways.

Police investigations into the young are proposed for crimes that would normally carry a sentence of at least one year’s prison.
