Prosecutors also demand that a Polish Court decide whether the man should be taken into custody so that a European warrant for his arrest can be issued.
Agneta Hilding Qvarnström at the International Public Prosecution Office in Sweden has been handling Poland’s request for legal assistance in the matter. However, being out of her office on Wednesday she hasn’t received such a warrant yet.
“But if the reports are true, I expect it will turn up. I am certain I will be informed, “said Agneta Hilding Qvarnström to Swedish news agency TT.
Swedish lawyer, Peter Althin, who has been in contact with the suspected Swede, told TT that he had heard nothing of these latest events.
Police recovered the five-metre (16-foot) metal sign – which means "Work Will Set You Free" in German – on December 20 in northern Poland and arrested the five Polish men.
