Youth wing reports funding decision to the police

The youth wing of the xenophobic Sweden Democrat party (SDU) reports the National Board for Youth Affairs to the police, after it decided not to give them any state funding for their work.

The Board had rejected the application from the political youth organisation, with reference to failings in its "democratic structure". According to the Board, SDU has not adopted its local statutes according to the rules stipulated for the funding.

But SDU is accusing the Board for Youth Affairs for breach of conduct has regarding impartiality and the ban on appeals in connection with their decisions.

The youth wing's mother party, the Sweden Democrats, were elected into parliament in the last election 2010.
