Decision to come Friday on Lundsberg's closing

A decision could come Friday on the temporary closing of Lundsberg, one of Sweden's oldest private boarding schools that was shuttered last week after new allegations of violent initiation rituals surfaced, TT news agency reports.

The Administrative Court in Gothenburg is expected to issue a decision on whether or not the school can open over a transitional period and allow students to stay at the boarding school while attending classes at other nearby schools.

The reason for the decision's delay until Friday is that the Swedish Schools Inspectorate has added new documents that Lundsberg's Board of Directors must first consider.

The Schools Inspectorate closed Lundsberg for six months, after it was revealed that two boys were burned with a hot iron, an abuse that capped off a string of allegations of physical and sexual abuse. The school has appealed the closing.
