Criminals can attack 'snitches' in prison

0:59 min

Details of what people say in police questioning or in trials can be shared in Swedish prisons and have serious consequences for certain inmates.

Lawyer Sabina Böö says that people locked up have connections on the outside who help them by finding out the information.

This can be used to point out inmates for punishment by criminals if they are seen to have been snitches or stool pigeons.
