Former Police Chief Arrested

A former Swedish police chief has been remanded in custody for sex crimes.

He is suspected of links with a network for illegal sexual contacts, and was charged Thursday with rape and planning to have sex with minors.

The case has attracted much attention here because the officer has been well known as a speaker on gender equality and trafficking. He denies the charges, and colleagues in the law enforcement community have expressed surprise over the developments.
