today, the 23-year-old man participated in an attack against the synagogue in Gothenburg in december 2017. A group of people threw burning objects against cars that were parked outside of a party during stockholm in synagogans församlingslokal. No one was hurt during the attack and because it was raining heavily, prevented the fire from spreading, but the 23-year-old and two other men in their 20s were sentenced to prison for among other things, grossly unlawful threat.
the district court also resolved on the expulsion of the man, who by the Swedish authorities considered to be a palestinian citizen. The court of appeal, however, the decision on expulsion with reference to a foreigner may not be expelled to a country where he might be subjected to inhuman or degrading treatment.
the Prosecutor general (RAW) appealed hovrättsdomen to the Supreme court, inter alia, on the grounds that the courts of appeal in different parts of the country have ruled differently in the matter of deportation of convicted criminals.
with respect to the 23-year-old referred RAW to the migration board does not believe that there is reason to assume that he will be subjected to inhuman treatment, a term that encompasses the death penalty and torture.
– He should then be deported to Palestine for that is where he comes from and where he is a citizen. Migrationsverkat has said in its opinion that there are no obstacles to deport him to Palestine, said My Hedström, head of division of the Prosecutor general, to the TT in October of last year.
Sweden recognized Palestine as a state in 2014 and refers, therefore, to the west bank, East Jerusalem and the Gaza strip.
two Additional cases have been tried by HD. One case a stateless man who has been convicted of robbery and the other a syrian man convicted of including aggravated rape.
