The Swedish Police Security Service (Säpo) has arrested a man for spying on refugees.

In a press release, the Security Service says the arrest took place in the Stockholm area on Thursday.

Stockholm District Court has to decide by Sunday whether the suspect will be charged with illegal intelligence activities.

According to earlier media reports the Swede was hired by a foreign embassy in Stockholm to spy on refugees here.  The police have refused to comment on what country is involved, but the television channel TV4 says he was spying on critics of the Chinese government here. (ah/gw)
