Jonas Trolle, officer in charge of the investigation

Police Chief Sole Suspect in Rape Case

The case against a former police commissioner suspected of rape and planned rape of minors, is not part of an investigation of a bigger network, according to the officer in charge of the investigation Jonas Trolle.

Trolle called a press conference on Saturday afternoon to try to put an end to what he called "rumours and misconceptions" circulating in the media.

"The speculations that a network of well known and well situated people has been uncovered by the investigation is wrong," Trolle said, stressing that they are only investigating one person.

The man was remanded in custody on Thursday. Before his arrest earlier in the week, some 25 policemen and women had been working with his case for two months. The investigation is expected to take some time before it is finished.

The case has attracted a lot of attention, due to the man's position in the police service. Not only had he been police commissioner, he had also been the headmaster of the police academy in Stockholm for 8 years. In addition, he was actively involved in work for women's rights and against sexual harassment.

The man denies the charges.
