Mangs may have phoned in tip to police
In the ongoing trial of Peter Mangs, accused of three murders and a dozen attempted murders, mostly of people from ethnic minorities, the prosecutor says Mangs himself phoned in an anonymous tip to the police nine years ago.
On Thursday the court is covering the 2003 murder of a 66 year old man from Iran. Prosecutor Håkan Larsson says that after Mangs broke into the man’s apartment and shot him, he took his ATM card and code and emptied the account.
According to the prosecution, several weeks later, someone phoned in an anonymous tip, claiming he had heard two people at a party talking about something going wrong with a robbery. The tipster named the exact amount that had been withdrawn, and other details which had not been made public at the time.
When Mangs was arrested in 2010, the prosecutor said, a tape recorder was found with a recording of the anonymous tip from 2003.
