Vital Evidence Sent For Analysis By Post

One of the key pieces of evidence against 2 men suspected of plotting to sabotage the Oskarshamn Nuclear Power Station in southern Sweden has been sent for analysis by ordinary mail.

The plastic bag, which was thought to contain traces of the explosive TATP, was sent last Wednesday, but only arrived at the lab on Monday. Sven Erik Karlsson from the local police says it was a mistake to send the vital evidence by the post, and that police should have delivered it personally, but Eva Marie Törnström from The Swedish National Laboratory of Forensic Science says it’s quite common for the police to send evidence by mail, saying they have never had any trouble with important evidence disappearing.
