Swedish prosecutors are to investigate a police database which includes sensitive information, and what could be seen as offensive judgements, about the victims of domestic abuse.

"I started the preliminary investigation yesterday, it is still at a very early stage", chief prosecutor Eva Finné told Swedish Radio News.

The Data Inspection Board has already announced it is to start an investigation into the database.

The database is not included in the police's ordinary registration system, instead it is made up of Excel spreadsheets. And according to Swedish Radio which revealed the existence of the database on Wednesday, it contains information that could be seen as infringing on the women's integrity.
