Prosecutor Calls For Five Years in Jail

In the final day of the court case against the former director of the Swedish Red Cross, Johan af Donner, prosecutors are calling for a sentence of at least five years imprisonment.

They say he is guilty of serious fraud and has acted maliciously and malevolently over a nine year period.

However, defence lawyer Leif Silbersky says that af Donner should get a shorter sentence as he has admitted his crimes and shown regret and remorse.

Judgement in the case is due on the 26th May, according to news agency TT,

Af Donner is accused of swindling more than a million US dollars from the charity.
