"It's not enough to just police investigate suspicions of serious crimes carried out by children, consider the children's Ombudsman (BO) Elisabeth Dahlin. She wants children under the age of 15 who are suspected of crimes like murder, serious assault, or rape more often than in the day to get trials in domstolsrättegång, she says to SR the Echo."
" We expect that a future government urgently clarifies the legislation and underlines the fact that children just like adults should be regarded as innocent until their guilt is determined. We can't have this uncertainty when it comes to children, " says Dahlin."
"She believes that children at risk of being innocently accused. Today it is required that the social welfare committee requests that a so-called bevistalan brought to a trial shall take place in the court. For the past seven years, it has only happened three times and Dahlin wants the prosecutor should be able to take the initiative to a bevistalan."
