Two teen girls to be charged in Instagram abuse case

Two girls who are between 15 and 18 years old will be prosecuted for slander. They are suspected of publishing abusive pictures on the social media platform Instagram.

The Instagram account triggered violent riots in Gothenburg last December when hundreds of young people gathered outside high schools searching for the people responsible for the "slut-shaming" abuse on the Instagram account.

Now Svenska Dagbladet reports that prosecutor Annika Boman will, in late April, formally charge the two minors.

So far investigators have interviewed 85 people, who have showed screenshots from computers and copies of other images.
