"Romario" Appeal Verdict Friday
The Stockholm Court of Appeals is due to pronounce its verdict in the so-called “Romario” murder case Friday morning.
It was in October last year that a 23 year old man, called Romario in the press, was knifed to death following a fight at a central Stockholm bar. Stockholm District Court has found all three young defendants not guilty in a high profile murder trial here.
Although an 18 year defendant confessed to the killing, there were strong doubts whether he was telling the truth or whether he took the blame because of threats from the real killers. He has since withdrawn his confession.
