Convicted paedophile ran schools

A convicted sex offender has been running three private schools in Stockholm, reveals TV4 News.

The man got permission to start the 'free schools' schools from the Swedish Education Agency in 2000, despite earlier being convicted of having sexual relations with a seven-year old girl.

In 2007 he was sentenced to six years in prison for several sexual offences, including aggravated child rape.

The Education Agency says that they do not check the criminal offences register when someone asks for permission to start a school.
