Download PDF for this date

Bjoern Lundahl, leader of a gang of neo-Nazis uncovered last month in a police raid, must be prosecuted before June 22, it was reported here today. He had been charged with suspicion of armed threat against the security of Sweden but that charge was reduced to preparation of such a threat.

Police said Lundahl’s passport had been taken from him and he was ordered to stay in Sweden. Meanwhile, he has been released pending further investigation of the charges. During the raid, material was discovered showing that the neo-Nazi group worked out a plan to kill all the Jews in Sweden.
