"once again aired the thoughts of anonymous witnesses."
"But that is not the rule of law in vogue at present."
"In an interview with TT in the People and defence national conference in Sälen says the usually wise attorney-general Petra Lundh"
"This stance is understandable. Not least the escalating deadly violence in the gängkriminaliteten is svårutrett. The risk of getting caught is too small, to some extent, depending on the fact that witnesses sometimes do not dare tell what they have seen or heard."
"Undermines the rule of law"
"nevertheless, it is a bad idea. A scheme of anonymous witnesses would undermine the rule of law. Anyone can accuse anyone for anything for any reason at any time."
"Tell me you suddenly suspected of the theft. You may not know who it is that has been reported to the police. It may be someone you have previously been in conflict with. "
"Undeniably material information which may affect his / her credibility, but you can't tell the police because you don't have a clue about who it is that accuses you."
"the Question is what is the significance of anonymous witnesses would get in the fight against crime. Judges are aware of the problems with such and would only grant them a marginal probative value."
"in Addition, a normally gifted lawyer with the right questions not rarely be able to disclose the identity of the anonymous witness."
"the Politicians are currently busy with scheming to regeringstaburetterna and have fortunately not the time to legislate that in the best case useless."
"But believe me, it will. The sweden democrats makes the thumbs up for anonymous witnesses need hardly be pointed out. But both the Christian democrats that the Liberals have joined in."
"the Conservatives partiledning did last year is a move in that direction, but retreated after internal protest and buried the issue in an investigation whose results no one has seen a glimpse of."
"the social democrats have so far said no, but history teaches us that the party can change its mind faster than the three seconds it takes for a cheetah to go from zero to a hundred."
"the Methods need to be developed."
"A popular argument among proponents is that Norway and Denmark since several years allow anonymous witnesses without the rule of law has succumbed.it is certainly true, but this opportunity is so inefficient that it is almost never used."
"another popular argument is that the same european Court of human rights has approved the faceless testimonials. It is certainly true, but the european Convention, which the court interprets, in this respect, a legislation to represent minimum standards."
"A country that claims to be a rule of law should still have a higher level of ambition than that?"
"the prosecutor General Lundh is also not alien to a system with kronvittnen, that is to say, an opportunity for the suspect to be a minor aside about the tjallar on their accomplices."
"A person accused of a crime would in other words have even more reason to blame other than what he or she already has."
"moreover, there is already a provision that the accused may receive a reduced punishment in certain circumstances. Why not start by applying it?"
"the Methods to combat organized crime need to be developed. For example, the witness protection program can be better. But the rule of law must not be abandoned. "
