Closing arguments in Sweden's biggest gang trial

"Who's making profits in illegal ways?"

Wednesday saw the closing arguments from the prosecution in what has been called Sweden's biggest criminal gang case. 17 suspects stand in the dock, accused of a double murder of two brothers in 2010. The trial has lasted six months.

Mobile phone records, tracing when and where phones have been connected to masts, play a central role in a case where the prosecution is relying heavily on a carefully woven net of circumstantial evidence.

The hard evidence, like DNA traces or fingerprints, and witnesses have not been forthcoming. Nor have the weapons used in the killings been found. But prosecutors say they can prove the gang members had access to the kinds of weapons used.
