Prosecution Authority wants investigation

Did release of Vilks information break the law?

The Swedish Prosecution Authority wants the Office of the Chancellor of Justice to investigate whether the law of confidentiality was broken when Metro newspaper received secret information about the alleged plot in Gothenburg against artist Lars Vilks, reports Swedish Television.

Earlier this week, citing classified material, the newspaper reported that the three men under arrest on suspicion of murder were targeting the controversial artist Lars Vilks.

The Authority wants the Chancellor of Justice to determine whether confidentiality overrules protection of sources in this case.
