then the good man, Torbjorn Lundberg, was told that she made the application, he turned to the Överförmyndarförvaltningen to get advice. Then, he contacted a social worker in the district in Skarpnäck. The person immediately made a report to the chief guardians ' committee to Åsa Pettersson's situation changed so that she was now in need of a manager and not just a good man.

Överförmyndarförvaltningen did as usual: they examined whether there was reason to act. They then sent the dossier to the district court, which, after having investigated the matter, appointed a so-called interim managers.

– this decision indicates that the notification is taken very seriously, " says Håkan Andersson, head of administration at Överförmyndarförvaltningen.

– in general, It is difficult to know how much a person understands. It is an assessment that a doctor must do. The basic principle is that we should not decide on more intervention than necessary, but still give the support needed, " says Håkan Andersson.

as Åsa Pettersson requested to get rid of his deputy, it is a minority that gets its request granted.

" We must see to the principal's best. In most cases, there are reasons to have a deputy. To get rid of it is the same thing as to get rid of the protection given to it by the society. Some of those who complain are changing the deputies, " says Håkan Andersson.

However, to assist you with the documents to the police investigations, where any third party made police report in between 10 and 20 cases per year. 55 the deputy was dismissed per year because they have mismanaged their mission. It is often about how, or if, they reported what they actually have done.

there are no suspicions against her deputy, it was, according to the application she herself who wanted to get rid of the good man.

– part of the överförmyndarens supervisory task is for example to follow up on the representative made a report to the police if there is suspicion of forgery, " says Håkan Andersson.
