Mijailovic to Serve Life in Sweden

Mijailo Mijailovic, must serve his life sentence for the murder of Anna Lindh in Sweden.

Mijailovic had requested permission to serve the rest of his sentence in his native Serbia.

The decision to deny the transfer was made by the Director-General of The Prison and Probation Service here, Lars Nylén, on the grounds that there is no life sentence in Serbia and the Serbian authorities have been unable to indicate how long Mijailovic might remain behind bars.

Mijailovic confessed to fatally stabbing Foreign Minister Anna Lindh in a Stockholm department store in 2003.
