War crimes suspect denies charges
The trial of a 43-year-old Swedish man, prosecuted for war crimes, began in Stockholm on Wednesday. Swedish Radio news reports that the suspect denied charges of having tortured Bosnian Serbs who were detained at a prison camp where he served as a guard in Bosnia in the mid-90s.
The man came to Sweden in 2001 and later became a citizen of this country, reports news agency TT.
His trial is expected to go on for several months.
This is the second time that a Swede will have been prosecuted for this type of crime. The first was Jackie Arklöv, convicted of war crimes against Bosnian Muslims, while serving as a mercenary for a Croatian militia around the same period.
