"One of the Facebook group Stand up for Sweden's founder is liable to be imprisoned for not deleting racist comments."
"– the Person prosecuted for offences against the act on electronic bulletin boards, " said prosecutor Maria Estberg."
"the Group was formed first as a support for police Peter Knight, who wrote in a Facebookinlägg that persons with an immigrant background were most abundant in the crimes he was investigating. "
"the Post received a lot of attention in the Swedish media and he was reported to hate speech. In this context, formed the group Stand up for Peter Steed that would later become the group Stand up for Sweden, which today has over 167 000 members. "
"– Some comments have been rough on incitement to hatred and they have been left standing for a long time. I believe that the person had the duty to delete the comments, says kammaråklagaren. "
"almost two years ago, notified the person of the Näthatsgranskaren for the violation of the law on electronic bulletin boards, called BBS-law. "
"According to the law, it is not only persons who can be convicted of a crime. Even a person who is behind a digital bulletin board, is responsible for what is written and thus can be convicted of a crime. The law says that those who are responsible for a bulletin board is obliged to remove comments that may be illegal within a reasonable period of time. "
"the Law was already twenty years ago, but there is still no judgment."
" What I know is there no one who has been convicted of this. It goes all the way to the Supreme court, it may become a precedent, " Maria says Estberg. "
"Aftonbladet have searched the group's founder, without success."
