"He indicted three men for preparation to commit terrorist offences – two of them acquitted."
"the chief Prosecutor, Per Lindqvist has, however, understanding of the district court's assessment. And a conviction on all points is not the most important thing, he believes."
"There has not been a long time since the verdict, when the responsible public prosecutor in the high-profile terrormålet comment on the judge's conclusions. Solna tingsrätt assessment differs in several points from the as Per Lindqvist done."
"He had indicted three men for preparation to commit terrorist offences, and one of them, a 46-year-old man, convicted by the district court. These three and another three men were indicted also for terrorfinansiering – a crime that four of them are considered to have been guilty of."
"– I note that the prosecution of the important parts have been unsuccessful, and not in all. But I think it is satisfactory that we got a conviction when it comes to preparing to commit a terrorist offence, " says Lindqvist."
"the district Court has considered the evidence against the two cleared for the preparation, a 30-year-old and a 39-year-old, has not been adequate, especially not when it comes to the 39-year-old."
"– I can agree that the evidence has not been as strong against all three, and so it will be sometimes – that you just get approval in part, in a criminal prosecution, " says Lindqvist."
TT: it Was still reasonable to prosecute the 39-year-old?"
"If there are grounds for an appeal, he wants to come back to."
"– I probably have to study the ruling more carefully before I can say if there are grounds to appeal in any or some parts, or if you can accept this output. The important thing is that it has become a good dom, it's really the main objective."
"HH: Seen in retrospect, it would have been better to wait with the raid, and may have had better evidence?"
"– It is an excellent question as I believe it should be approached with quite great humility. The important thing in this case is that there is no terrorist offences. Given the values of the handling so I think you should have quite a big understanding that there are difficult trade-offs that are made, where on the one hand want to wait a little bit to get more evidence, and on the other hand, of course, want to interrupt anything."
" And interrupts may not be the disastrous consequences. I have no view on the point where you intervened, I think it was good and wise."
