the words were enough to get gängbrottsligheten should Sweden be on the right track. The responsible ministers, mr Morgan Johansson (S), and Mikael Damberg (S), keep talking about the gangs is to ”be”, ”to be fought”, and ”be here.”
before the press conference, with links to the 34-point program after the other. In a week, the government announced yet another in a long list of inquiries is More gängkriminella to be detained, and there should be stiffer penalties for those who recruit young people for the purpose of committing a crime.
It is already very difficult to arrest persons under the age of 18 years of age. It is necessary for serious reasons, which, in plain language, that means something like " in truly exceptional cases. Personrån with guns involved is on the border. Some courts chose to detain the suspects left, the second places them, with the result that they are able to work it out together and pose a threat to the victim, in anticipation of a possible lawsuit. In practice, there is often impunity for these types of crimes.
the prosecution requested that the 16-year-old would be arrested, but it was rejected by both the district court as the court of appeals. It is not considered to be a sufficient cause for the detention of a young person. As a result, she is neither dared to go out or to be involved in the subsequent investigation. In this case, the court sentenced the offender, though.
Prosecutors, whom I have been in touch with the feel a great deal of concern about the impact of the government's proposals.
There is a naivety about the young people's crime concerns. Many people believe that it is all about the innocent prank. In fact, this is often not about major crime, with a link to the gängmiljön, such as murder, robbery, extortion, blackmail, etc.
There is now a proposal to set a firm time limit on how long people should be able to be kept in custody. For the adults, where the limit was first set at six months, but it has since been revised up to nine months of the year. For minors, it is proposed, the maximum amount of time in pre-trial detention of three months of the year. In some special cases, however, an extension could be granted.
as a Prosecutor, as I have been in touch with the feel a great deal of concern about the impact of the government's proposals. They are convinced that the number of serious crimes is going to lead to a conviction in the future.
If the offenders will know in advance that they will be at liberty prior to trial, they have a good opportunity to speak up, get alibis, destroy evidence and threaten witnesses into silence. They will not have any incentive whatsoever to facilitate the investigation. In the day, an alleged shortening of his time in pre-trial detention, by, for example, to admit that it is his voice that can be heard in the audio file, or in his semen, which was found at the scene of a rape, and then need to tracks to send in for analysis. Having a fixed deadline will be the defence that, on the contrary, have every reason to stonewall the investigation, and just let the time go by.
" the Police are saying that their number one priority is to stop the supply of new entrants. At the same time, the centre is now a proposal that would make it even more appealing to make use of young people, because it is, in practice, it will be straffritt for them to commit a crime. We are exposing these young people to a great danger. It is they who are to be recruited as a shooter, and is liable to be killed, " says Lise Tamm, the chief prosecutor of the Riksenheten against transnational organized crime.
In Sweden, we have something that is called muntlighets and omedelbarhetsprincipen, which means that it is only through what is said during the trial that makes the difference.
However, it is important to get to the bottom of the long häktningstiderna? Sweden is, after all, the object of repeated criticism from, among others, the united nations in this regard.
the Problem is that the government is attacking the problem from the wrong direction. There are obvious bottlenecks in the system, among other things, the proposal of the National forensiskt the center, waiting for computers and mobile devices to erase, or, on the feedback from the rest of the world. The EUROPEAN union countries, for example, the two months in which to respond to a so-called EIO (European Investigation Order.
The reasonable thing would be to try and speed up on on them. An even greater obstacle is the actual code. In Sweden, we have something that is called muntlighets and omedelbarhetsprincipen, which means that it is only through what is said during the trial that makes the difference.
you Want to do something about the long-häktningstider, the government, in other words, with a number of excellent options. In other countries, the accused is a magistrate, and that the interrogation might be used later in the trial. It should also be possible in Sweden.
the introduction of the fix time-limits for the detention are at risk is to put the difficulties to work towards the gängbrottsligheten. The conservatives have fought hard in the committee on justice in order to stop the motion with the aid of the KD and SD, and on Tuesday, it will be sent out for a public consultation.
