Chinese Criminal Network Foothold
Swedish police have warned that Chinese criminal networks are gaining a foothold in the country and have been cooperating with criminals abroad.
The Swedish Criminal Investigation Department says Chinese criminal syndicates are engaged in everything from human trafficking to blackmail and forgery of passports.
It also said the networks con people in China into investing in Swedish companies that do not exist.
Sweden and its Scandinavian neighbours are trying to establish liaison officers in China to help crack down on the criminal groups.
