“No Incitement of the Jewish People”

The Aftonbladet article about Israeli soldiers allegedly harvesting body organs of Palestinians was no incitement of the Jewish people, Sweden’s Chancellor of Justice has ruled. In a statement published late Saturday, Chancellor Göran Lambertz explained he will not start an investigation into the matter.

The article that had sparked diplomatic tensions between Sweden and Israel was reported to the Chancellor of Justice after its publication on August 17th for infringing upon the freedom of the speech. But according to Lambertz the article was in accordance with the constitutional right to express one’s views in a free debate.
