Crime

Threats Against Politicians Often Unpunished

Published måndag 9 mars 2009 kl 14.33

Last year the Swedish Police Security Services conducted twentyone preliminary investigations into crimes against Swedish Ministers and Members of Parliament. Only one of these investigations actually led to prosecution, according to Swedish TV 4 News.

Most of the cases involved threats sent to the politicians’ place of work. In eighteen of the cases government ministers had been threatened, according to the Swedish news website Politikerbloggen.

Åsa Hedin, head of communications at the Swedish Police Security Services, told Swedish news agency TT that threats against politicians are very hard to investigate, mainly due to the difficulties in getting information from phone and internet providers in order to track the offenders.
