Terrorist Suspect Appeals Ruling

A 40-year old Finnish citizen of North African descent was sent back to Finland last year, on suspicion of terrorist leanings. Prior to being ordered to leave he was held in custody in Sweden for five months.

The man has now contacted Finnish daily Helsingin Sanomat, saying he is innocent and that he has appealed the Swedish ruling to the European Court of Human Rights. According to the man he has an eight year old daughter in Sweden.

The Swedish News Agency TT reports that the man is allegedly a central person in Islamic circles in the Nordic countries and that the Swedish Police Security Services (SÄPO) had reasons to believe there was a risk he would commit terrorist actions in Sweden.
