"In november, came a much-publicized study on fully independent churches and extremism. Now wounds other researchers doubt the findings of the report and have notified it of misconduct in research, writes Svenska Dagbladet."
"the Report establishes that between 15 000 and 18 000 people in Sweden are included in the various criminal networks, from motorcycle gangs to islamist extremism. A much higher number than previously feared."
"– the Numbers in the report sounds high, and possibly correct the. But we as outsiders do not have the opportunity to make their own judgement, " says Johannes Knutsson, professor emeritus at the national Police academy in Oslo and one of the plaintiffs, told the newspaper."
"He believes that neither the authors of the report, or the police have been able to answer how the data has been developed."
"Amir Rostami, who is one of the authors of the report, dismisses the criticism."
"”There is no doubt that it is a weakness that we lack control over the observation and measurement. But there is one weakness that is common to most of registry"
"Amir Rostami also been accused to have violated ethics rules when he during the research project partially returned to a service at the Police department. Amir Rostami rejects the criticism. The study are now being examined by both Lund and Stockholm universities."
