  • The police were wrong to deny Rasmus Paludan a permit to demonstrate in Borås on April 29, according to the Swedish Administrative Court.

  • Paludan, a far-right political hopeful, has sought police permission to host public rallies in Swedish cities where he wants to burn copies of the Quran.

  • The court did, however, agree with the police when they refused Paludan's request to host gatherings in Hjällbo municipality and Angered.
