Interior minister Mikael Damberg is clearly concerned after reading DN's publication of Jamila who was held prisoner by the ICE and now feel fear to meet terrororganisationens followers in Sweden – the country she fled to in order to remain safe.
" I understand the fear. Have you been through something like this, so put it in the soul, " he says.
– Sweden believe that these terrorists, and this crime against humanity shall be tried in the region. We will see if we can establish an international tribunal, both for the prosecution of terrorists and to create redress for the victims. But also for how we write our history books. I believe that the nuremburg trials and the tribunal for Rwanda had a significant impact on how the world and humanity handled the abuse.
as described in the article are crimes against humanity or war crimes. The kind of thing that can be judged internationally, in Sweden and in the region. It is important to have a focus on judging these people for the slave trade, beheadings for propaganda purposes or the sex trade that has been carried out, even if any of these people would get to Sweden. Swedish courts have broad powers to condemn this type of crime. Sweden has provided support for the united nations system as of the day collecting evidence in the region to be able to prosecute them. Over time, we have tightened up the legislation several times and will continue to do it. We have also given much more money to the police and intelligence agencies to be able to have a stronger security if people are coming back to Sweden.
– It is about collecting evidence, both in the region where we have a large international cooperation with other intelligence services. But also for the authorities to ensure that the evidence that is collected for future trials. Security police in Sweden all follow the returner carefully. All who have returned from Syria or from konfliktregionen is not a threat but there are people who the secret service follows at the individual level because they see that they can pose a threat to Sweden.
– the security service and the police have a very close cooperation. Share information about those individuals. The secret police have a track of which are in the country. There have been that these persons have been convicted of other crimes in Sweden that the police have a close eye on them.
– part of this evidence has perhaps already collected by UN organisations on the ground. Exactly how to transfer information from the Swedish police to the others I must check. But the Swedish police has a close cooperation with the security Police in Sweden and is prepared to act if it will produce information that we can convict people for crimes.
" We got in the week of assessment ( the security police yearbook, editor's note) that we do not see any large group of returner coming to Sweden the next year. They are stuck in the region, many are incarcerated and our preferred option is that they should be judged by an international tribunal in the region. But it would come back people, we must make a careful determination of whether we have evidence enough to trap them. Otherwise, the secret Police follow them.
I can of course not tell you about. I can tell you that the security at the individual level closely follow those who have returned to Sweden. Their assessment is that all that is returned is not dangerous. Some of those who returned was very disappointed and came pretty quickly back after what they saw in the region. There are also women and children who have returned that the security service does not assess a threat. There are also some individuals who Police believe has knowledge of the violence and could pose a threat. Them carefully.
– When it comes to this kind of crime, or suspicion that a person could be a danger for Sweden, so there is also the covert coercive measures that the security service has the right to take to. But I'm not going to go into exactly what coercive measures it is all about.
" You have deliberately breached the foreign MINISTRY's recommendations to not go to this krigsregionen. Then you can't in this mode, the count with consular help from Sweden. There is no international obligation for Sweden to download home IS-terrorists from the region.
" these people have committed crimes in the region. We think that the most reasonable evidence and for the proximity to the witnesses, and the interests of justice and restoration for the people affected, would be an international tribunal in the region.
– Along with several other european countries, we have many who have traveled to this mördarsekten. It is a responsibility we share, that we did not take the issue of radicalisation seriously enough. It was thought that there was something that touched someone other than us. There has been a major issue for us. The security service follows this very carefully. We have also built up a new center against våldsbejakande extremism in Sweden, which has the sole function to help public authorities, municipalities and other stakeholders to work long-term prevention to ensure that våldsbejakande trends do not develop. We also have authorities who are working with this, not least the prison service has a complete program for that through the intelligence and strategic work to ensure that persons in prison should be radicalised. It is a work that Sweden has developed in recent years, but it is clear that more should have been done in the past.
– There have always been authorities who have followed the radicalisation in Sweden. But prevention efforts have not always been so well thought out. Today, there is a network between the municipalities that had most of the problem. To exchange experiences and look at international examples to see what Sweden can do more to prevent and prevent this type of radicalisation.
" Previously, many schools have not had sufficient preparedness to follow up if they perceive that young people are radicalized. We have had a social services who have not really understood how the children in such environments are affected. We have had religious communities in Sweden that have not reacted early enough against the extreme versions of, in this case islam. There are many who carry the responsibility for not made enough against radicalisation in Sweden in the past.
in the Autumn of 2017 voted the government no to a riksdagsmotion about to admit it to the UN is described as an act of genocide on the yazidier and other religious minorities.
the DN wanted to ask the question to the minister of the interior what the explanation for the government's ' no ' is and how the government acts today. Mikael Damberg has referred to the state Department.
