Former police commissioner Göran Lindberg in court on Friday

Extended Custody for Former Police Chief

The time in custody for the former police commissioner who is suspected of rape and now also pimping has been extended. On Friday, the prosecutor succeeded to convince the judge to grant him more time to gather evidence.

The former police chief, who was well known in Sweden for his campaign for gender equality in the police force, was arrested in late January accused of rape and planning to rape minors. He says he's not guilty of any crimes and has contested his custody.
