Four Men Convicted Under Hate Crimes Law

Published torsdag 6 juli 2006 kl 10.31

Four right ring extremists have been convicted under Sweden’s hate crime laws for handing out anti-gay pamphlets outside a school.

The case had been taken to the supreme court after the four men’s convictions at district court level had been overturned at the court of appeal. The four were however given lower sentences than in the district court.

The men handed out leaflets with three others outside a school in Söderhamn, which is 250 kilometres north of Stockholm.

The leaflets claimed, among other things, that ”HIV and AIDS appeared early in homosexuals, and their promiscuous lifestyles have been one of the main reasons for this modern plague gaining a foothold.”
