"the Government is taking in a little too much in its proposals on punishment for acts of sabotage against the blåljusverksamhet, believes the Council. The proposals mean that the punishments would be harder than for other sabotagebrott, where people's lives are in danger."
"the Government suggested recently, in a proposal, that serious attacks against the police, fire brigade and ambulance, shall be punished with up to life in prison."
"In normal circumstances, however, shall the penalty be a maximum of four years."
"the Council questions whether it even needed a classification of the felony. The council considers that the justifications and comparisons in which the government set up in the proposals to justify the severity of the penalty is lame. The council proposes that the government work with the bill that is supposed to follow shortly to reflect over their proposal."
"the Council also believes that the crime that the government wants to mint should be called the acts of sabotage against the blåljusverksamhet, not blåljussabotage."
"It's already a crime to attack police, firefighters or paramedics in order to prevent them to carry out their work. The difference is that the penalties for it are sharpened in the government's proposals."
"But the Council is questioning the strict penalties that are proposed, and stresses, with reference to the investigation which the proposals are based, on the, that it is mostly young men and teenage boys who make themselves responsible for the crimes referred to."
