New suspect arrested in Lindh case as first suspect cleared

Swedish police have arrested a new suspect in connection with the murder of foreign minister Anna Lindh, and dropped charges against a man detained earlier, Chief Prosecutor Agneta Blidberg said. She said there was a higher degree of suspicion against the latest arrest than the previous suspect, Per Olof Svensson. With regard to Svensson, she told a news conference: “He is no longer suspected of the murder.” “Another man has been arrested” on a higher degree of suspicion, she said. No evidence would be disclosed until prosecutors had deliberated with the Stockholm Court about his detention. Under Swedish law, prosecutors have three days in which to present the court with evidence justifying a suspect’s continued detention. Wednesday’s arrest was “undramatic”, Leif Jennekvist, head of the Stockholm police serious crime division, told the press conference. “The investigation is now in a new phase, that is why we can’t say anything,” he said.
