the Government's proposal would mean that the two new offences are introduced, participation in the terrorist organization and affiliated with the terrorist organization. They also wanted to make it a punishable offence to publicly call on and recruit for participation in a terrorist organization, to travel abroad in order to participate in terrorist activities and to fund participation in a terrorist organization. The offence is proposed to give from two to six years in prison.
builds the government's proposals on the premise that freedom of association only protects the lovlig activities, which the Council does not believe is the case. Instead, the Council on legislation of a law that criminalises the participation in a terrorist organisation would mean a limitation of the grundlagsskyddande freedom of association in a way that the constitution does not allow. The council therefore considers that the government's proposal should not become law.
the Council is among other things, critical of the government are too far-reaching in what counts with participation in a terrorist organization. According to the bill, it can be everything from the cooking to the clean acts of violence.
another critical point is that the bill threatens to limit journalists ' ability to review våldsbejakande environments.
”A question arises as to whether a woman can be considered to participate in a terrorist organisation's activities only by taking care of their children. Another question is how journalists operate in these environments should be able to carry out journalistic work without risking to be covered by the criminal field,” writes the Council in its opinion.
Johansson, that they are now going to analyze The answers. At the same time, he notes that the sentences are divided between the lawyers.
the Investigator who considered that this was consistent with the constitution, the judges of the Supreme court, " he says.
the Bill is based on an agreement with the bourgeois parties and the minister of justice says that now he will invite the bourgeois parties – to see how they should proceed.
– So we'll see how we can find a way forward on these proposals, but it is too early to say how such a road would look like, " says Johansson.

" even before there is a proposition so says the Council of state, that it is not up to the mark. There is a risk that further delaying a product for which there is a great need, " he says.
On the question of how Johan Forssell looks at the Morgans Johansson invitation that he wants to discuss with the bourgeois parties, he replies:
– It is not opposition thing to solve. Actually it is Morgan Johansson, who is minister of justice and has been for the past five years, " says Johan Forssell.
– Yes, in 2017 we said that such a product would be developed. But it is the government that has developed and put forward, "says Johan Forssell, and adds:
" How does Morgan Johansson's plan, really?
the government is not binding, and the government can still submit the bill. According to the Swedish, which was submitted to the Council on 28 February, the proposed law shall enter into force on 1 August 2019.
