however, It is not managed for the police to get closer, to crack the case, and all the feasibility studies are now completed.

Unfortunately for the police did the perpetrators use of a temporary e-mail, and it has therefore not been possible to get closer to a solution.

- We have worked very diligently to find the perpetrators. Threats, and threats against persons in special positions, looking the police are always very seriously, tells Kristina Forsgren, who is the group leader for democracy and hate crime unit.
