Swedish FM avoids prosecution over blog

Sweden’s Foreign Mininster Carl Bildt is not to face charges over a posting made by an individual on his Internet blog site, supporting a Palestinian genocide.

The comment was posted on Bildt’s site on March 20th and was not removed until June 8th.

According to prosecutors, while Bildt was legally required to remove offensive postings from his blog site, this did not warrant prosecution.

Prosecutors also said it could not be proved whether Bildt had read all the large number of posts made on his site, adding the minister had removed other offensive posts.
