Gothenburg court frees terrorist suspects

Published onsdag 2 mars 2011 kl 10.37
Prosecutor Mats Sjösten

The two men convicted of planning a terrorist attack in Sweden have been completely freed by the appeals court on Wednesday.  

The two men, both with roots in Somalia, were sentenced to four years in prison by the district court in December. But when the case reached the appeals court the judge decided to let both men free pending a verdict, Swedish Radio News reports.

The court said the prosecutor's accusations were not supported by the evidence presented.

According to the prosecutor the two men have connections with the Islamic organisation al-Shabaab, based in Somalia, and were preparing attacks in Sweden.
