4:04 min

The human rights monitor Amnesty today launched its annual report. Sweden was not spared from criticism. Swedish lawmakers have yet to ban torture, and the treatment of Roma asylum seekers is under par, says Amnsety. Add to this the many Iraqis and Eritreans denied the right to stay here despite experts saying sending them back is not safe. We asked Amnesty's Swedish press secretary Elisabeth Löfgren to walk us through the problems they have identified.
