Tabloid cleared from defamation allegations

Published torsdag 14 april 2011 kl 19.49

The tabloid newspaper Expressen did not break the law when they published name and photograph of a 35-year-old man who was initially arrested for the 2003 murder of foreign minister Anna Lindh.

After one week the man was released and cleared of all suspicion but by that time his name and picture had decorated the front page of several newspapers. He later reported Expressen for defamation.

But a jury absolved the newspaper from all 52 allegations, which
didn’t surprise the man’s lawyer Gunnar Falk.

“This shows yet again that it is practically impossible to win against
the media and especially news media,” he told news agency TT. “It is
particularly difficult if the person has a troubled past.”
