Default The Legal Situation in Sweden

[The claim in this post -- that media in Sweden are deliberately censoring reports of Muslim-on-White crime -- is plausible but unconfirmed. The report comes from a neocon shill. That is, the self-styled Irish savant supports the jews who control the media and impose precisely the same hush-crime suppression in the American media he complains of in Sweden. The only difference between suppression here and censorship there is that the jews hate the Muslim mud committing the crime in Sweden while the same jews love and support the nigger/mexican mud-on-White crime in the U.S. As always, apparent contradictions always can be reconciled by knowledge of the jew's agenda. Diversity good, but anti-jew diversity mixed. Not entirely bad, because, after all, the muds are raping and murdering the hated Whites. But not entirely good, because even when they are raping and murdering Whites they still hate jews. You see the dilemma. What's a kosherite to do?

The jew shrieks for diversity, and the borders are opened. In come the Muslims in the tide of flotsam sewage, but that's no good, because Muslims don't like jews. Es isst shver, ein yidl zu seyn.

Don't kid yourself about "Swedish" media. Just because it covers Sweden doesn't mean it's Swedish. In fact so-called Swedish media are controlled by the government (rank socialists) and one private family - the Bonniers - jews. Incidentally, this 'dhimmitude,' subjection to the muslims, is precisely what the West is already subjected to - under the jews. What's the word for "dhimittude imposed by jews?" All together now, class: "Conspiracy theory believed only by haters and extremists wearing tinfoil hats!" What about jews whining about dhimmitude? Where are all these papers and tv stations owned by Muslims? We don't see them anywhere outside Arabia, and even there, check twice.

Jews whining about Muslim crime being covered up - well, who owns the papers that have spent 40 years covering up black-on-White crime? Jews, of course. So why are they so worried about Muslim-on-White crime? Answer: they aren't. They don't give a damn about it. If Muslims weren't anti-jew, more than other mud invaders, you'd never hear a single word about it. Bad, diversity, bad! Don't you know, silly muslim dog, you're only supposed to attack Whites, you dhimmy dummy?]



The Irish Savant carries a shocking post about Swedish journos who agreed that they would not publish anything negative about Mozzies or SBG for FIVE YEARS! That was as long ago as 1985 - so they merely carried on for the next 23 years.

We have been wondering why the BBC so studiously ignores the situation in the NSA - I have no doubt they have adopted a similar policy. This begs the question - why?


My anonymous correspondent from my previous post has now graciously provided us with a more comprehensive description of what happened, and which largely explains why Sweden occupies such dhimmi status today.

Incidentally, the Thought Police seem to see no irony in referring to the self-censoring journalists as 'independent'.

His report:

For many years Scandinavians have wondered what kept the Swedish press from reporting the Muslim atrocities that take place every day and that threaten to tear the country apart. Now the truth is out: The conspiracy that hid the effects of multi culture from public view:


The "Lilla Saltsjöbadavtalet" 1985 as reported by SwedenWatchQuote - On march 21'st 1987 a remarkable conference was held at the Saltsjöbaden (the salt water spa) resort near Stockholm. A set of rules were adopted by the Swedish Journalists Club at their meeting there, rules applies to all journalists working for Swedish media.

These rules are commonly referred to as the "Lilla Saltsjöbadavtalet" (The little salt sea spa agreement).

The agreement was supposed to be kept a secret, but as has happened with most of the state manipulated reporting on the multi cultural project, the truth has come out.

The agreed rules were as follows: "As an independent journalist, you must observe the following recommendations:

Report positively, if necessary rename, fellow Swedes of foreign origin. In particular, this must be observed when reporting on activities related to youth, sports and art. When reporting from events involving different cultures, interview and put visual focus on people of foreign descent. For a period of five years, you must systematically and consistently refrain from reporting on negative aspects like crime that can identify any religious or racial affiliation of the involved or can have a negative effect upon a population as a whole."

(The language is really as clumsy as that) The five year period has been extended several times and the agreement, with cosmetic and linguistics refinements are in effect up to this day. When asked, the journalists admit that the meeting took place, but they are reluctant to discuss what were actually said during the conference.

Sweden created a paradise on earth for all its citizens. And it's throwing it away - for nothing. As numerous earlier posts show, these favoured immigrants view native Swedes, not with gratitude, but with contempt and hatred.

Three teens charged with raping Danish tourists
By ABE SELIG

Three members of Kibbutz Ein Gedi arrested on suspicion of raping two Danish tourists over a week ago were indicted in the Beersheba Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.

Part of the evidence included in the indictment is a cellphone video, retrieved by police, that allegedly shows two of the suspects assaulting one of the tourists, a police spokesman said.

The two tourists, aged 17 and 19, who were staying at the kibbutz guest houses for Dead Sea spa treatments, had become acquainted with the three young men after arriving at the kibbutz three weeks prior. The women had originally alleged that the suspects, all children of kibbutz members, assaulted them in the apartment of one of the suspects.

According to police, the cellphone video shows one of the plaintiffs in a car with two of the suspects. The suspects reportedly ask her to kiss them, and when she refuses, she is pulled from the car by one of the suspects and thrown into a grassy field nearby.

Earlier reports said that all three of the suspects admitted to having consensual sex with the tourists. However, a police source told The Jerusalem Post that only one of the suspects admitted to consensual sex, and the other two entirely denied having sex with the women.

All three suspects are to remain in jail until the case goes to court, and the tourists, who police said they believed had left the country, may or may not return to testify.

According to the indictment, on April 13, a few days before they were supposed to leave the country, the two plaintiffs met the suspects - Ron Rodeti, 22, Ben Evar, 21, and Dan Lahav, 22 - at the kibbutz pub. They drank, and at some point, the suspects invited the two girls back to Lahav's apartment, where they were given more alcohol. The indictment then states that Rodeti and Evar entered a car with one of the girls, after which the incidents captured on the cellphone began.

The indictment also states that the other woman, left behind at Lahav's apartment, went through a similar experience. There, Lahav allegedly tried to kiss her, and when she refused, the indictment says, he removed her clothes and raped her.

It remains to be seen how the alleged incident will affect the kibbutz as an in-demand tourist destination. Ein Gedi is a popular spot for visitors both from Israel and outside the country, and features a botanical garden, guest houses and a spa, along with impressive waterfalls , hiking trails, antiquities and swimming holes in the nature reserve nearby.

"Why should there be a relationship between this incident and our tourism?" asked Meirav Eilon, a kibbutz spokeswoman. "These sorts of things, while they are terrible, happen in Tel Aviv, Haifa, Los Angeles, Central Park - all over the world - and I don't think it affects the number of tourists that go to those places. Ein Gedi is a famous tourist location in Israel, and I'm sure people will continue to come. There's no reason to connect Ein Gedi and our attractions with the incident that happened last week."

Eilon also said the atmosphere at the kibbutz, which has nearly 500 members, was somber, but that, "like most kibbutzim, it's hard to find one that is a single body. Some people are more upset than others, but it should be said that the kibbutz didn't do this."

Eilon went on to say that since the incident, there has not been a drop in visitors or guests at the kibbutz.

"God forbid," she said. "I can say that in the past couple of days, there's been less people in the entire Dead Sea area, but that isn't related to the incident on the kibbutz, it's related to the heat - and I don't blame them."

Still, Eilon confirmed that the three suspects were to be held in jail until May 7, when the case is set to come before the Beersheba Magistrate's Court.

Regarding the jewish media family Bonniers: They came to Sweden in the 1820ies from Germany via Denmark.

The familys real name was Hirschel. Bonnier is a French name, which they "borrowed".

In Germany they had been chapmans and rag-and-bone-men. But in Sweden they found a better racket: selling books.

This and much more can be read (in Swedish) in a book that was published in 1937. The writer Martin Brandt borrows the name "Moses Smith" from August Strindberg.

Sweden Democrat Party politician Michael Hess of Karlskrona was sentenced today (May 8, 2014) to a fine for hate speech after having connected the religion of Islam with rape.

According to the judgment, the statement is not part of a “factual and authoritative discussion” and it thus it does not matter whether or not the statement is true.

[attempt to assert global jurisdiction by an insignificant northern country]

Crimes against humanity added to Swedish law
28 May 2014

Sweden on Tuesday enshrined crimes against humanity in its penal code, allowing Swedish courts to prosecute severe crimes committed abroad following similar moves in France and Canada.

The law, punishable by an unlimited sentence, will apply retroactively against any person who sets foot on Swedish soil, wherever their victims may have been.

"Crimes include, for example, homicides, sexual violence and torture, when they are committed within the scope of a widespread or systematic attack directed against a civilian group," the parliament said in a statement.

The crime of arranging a forced marriage, punishable by up to four years in jail, was also adopted without a vote on Tuesday.

The Swedish government announced its plan to write the offence into law in January on the twelfth anniversary of the murder of Fadime Sahindal, a 26-year-old from Turkey killed by her father when she refused an arranged marriage.

The offence consists of "exploiting someone's vulnerability to force them to marry," including by exerting pressure on a young person, or suddenly sending them abroad to be wed.

War crimes had previously been included in Sweden's penal code, which had been used to prosecute for crimes committed in the former Yugoslavia and the Rwandan genocide.

Football fans held for violence and Nazi chants

31 May 2014

Supporters of Swedish football club Djurgården have thrown the club into the spotlight again after clashing with police and chanting sieg hiel amidst violent scenes in Örebro, central Sweden.

The altercation took place in a local pub in the early hours of Saturday morning. Stockholm club Djurgården were in town to play against Örebro in the latest round of fixtures in the Allsvenskan.

An estimated 20 male football fans threw bottles at police and security officers after the authorities arrived at the pub following an altercation there.

"The Djurgården supporters got very angry and began attacking the police and throwing things," said duty officer Dan Sööder to NA.se.

He added the atmosphere got quite nasty as the supporters made a number of verbal threats and began making Nazi chants.

"They were screaming sieg heil and giving the Hitler salute," said Sööder.

Police managed to bring the situation under control by using tear gas. Two men, aged 51 and 26 respectively, were subsequently arrested on suspicion of violent rioting.

A separate report has also been opened in connection with the Nazi chants which are classified as a hate speech.

Earlier this year a supporter of Djurgården was killed in Helsingborg after two rival sets of football fans clashed in the city centre.

Following the incident some government ministers suggested banning away supporters from going to matches but no legislation has yet been passed.

Pirate Bay founder Peter Sunde arrested
01 Jun 2014



The co-founder of file sharing site Pirate Bay has been arrested in southern Sweden after almost two years on the run. Sunde has been wanted by Interpol since 2012.

Quote:
Pirate Bay Swede suffers Danish prison 'torture' (13 Dec 13)
Pirate Bay Swede to be shipped to Denmark (21 Nov 13)
Supreme Court rejects Pirate's hacking appeal (29 Oct 13)
Peter Sunde,35, was seized at a farm in Oxie in Skåne on Saturday. Swedish and Polish police forces worked together to apprehend him.

The Swede was sentenced to eight months in prison in 2010 for copyright violations but has yet to spend a day behind bars.

"He will serve his prison sentence. I don't have any more details on the arrest," said Carolina Ekeus of the National Police Board (Rikspolisstyrelsen) to the Expressen newspaper.

It's understood that Sunde has been living in Germany for the past few years. He had applied for a revision of his case to the Swedish Supreme Court in February but his appeal was rejected.

Sunde and his fellow Pirate Bay co-founders Fredrik Neij and Gottfrid Svartholm Warg, as well as financier Carl Lundström, were all convicted in 2009 of facilitating copyright infringement and ordered to pay 46 million kronor ($6.9 million) in damages to the music and movie industry.

Sunde later had his sentence shortened after a ruling at an appeals court.

"He's incredibly talented and I still think that the judgment was wrong," Peter Althin, who defended Sunde in the Pirate Bay trial, told the TT news agency.

He added; "You have to be at the forefront if you are going to e successful but if you are too far ahead then it's not always about success."

Fellow co-founder Gottfrid Svartholm Warg was extradited to Denmark in November 2013 to face accusations he orchestrated a hacker attack on registries belonging to the Danish police.

Financier Carl Lundström has since served his time in prison. Sunde's arrest means that just one of the three main people behind Pirate Bay remains at large. Fredrik Neij is believed to be laying low in Asia.

Founded in 2003, The Pirate Bay made it possible to skirt copyright fees and share music, film and computer game files using bit torrent technology, or peer-to-peer links offered on the site.

Despite several efforts to close it down it remains online after changing its domain name on numerous occasions.

Man charged for assault in Kärrtop clash

02 Jun 2014

A man was charged on Monday with aggravated assault for his involvement in the Kärrtorp clash with neo-Nazis late last year.

The 25-year-old man was charged on Monday after he was arrested in Denmark in March. He has been detained since mid April.

During December's clash in southern Stockholm between neo-Nazis and Kärrtorp residents, the charged man was among those standing on the square when the Swedish Resistance Movement (SMR) showed up, reported the TT news agency.

He allegedly bludgeoned someone in the face.

READ ALSO: "The Nazis are back, and they look like anyone else"

Prosecutor Tove Kullberg explained that the process was dragging out because of the high number of suspects involved. Around 30 people were under investigation.

"There will likely be more charges filed," she said.

In April, an extreme-left activist was sentenced to six and a half years in prison for stabbing a neo-Nazi in the back during the same altercation.

The story is written and headlined to disguise the story: leftists attacked Swedish nationalists.

Residents of the southern suburb had rallied to protest against the sprouting of Nazi graffiti when members of the Swedish Resistance Movement showed up. The scene quickly descended into violence with several people fighting back and several suffering knife wounds.

The following weekend, Stockholmers gathered in their thousands to protest the violence.

Nordic Resistance Movement district-leader Pär Sjögren convicted for hate speech ("incitement to racial hatred") and fined on the grounds of having tweeted: "Death to Zion. Long live Golden Dawn.".

Sweden's arbitrarily applied draconian speech-crime laws rivals those of the UK in grim absurdity.

Quote:
Pär Sjögren convicted of posts on Twitter

RESISTANCE MOVEMENT. Today was sentenced Pär Sjögren against its negative for the crime of incitement to racial hatred by Falu District Court. The judgment relates to two messages posted on Sjogren Twitter.

Earlier today announced Falu District Court to Pär Sjögren, head of the Resistance fifth nest, convicted of incitement to racial hatred. The penalty was a daily fine of 5,000 kronor.

The district court said that two posts on Sjogren's Twitter account incited against Jews. One of the posts contained a picture of an ugly creature that ate up the Sweden Democrats' (kosher nationalists)party symbol.

The district court held that the ugly figure symbolized the Jewish people. The second panel included the following text:

Quote:
Death to zion. Long live the Golden Dawn.
The post was published in conjunction with the Zionist organizations demanded that the Greek nationalist party Golden Dawn would be banned, but the district court nevertheless chose to interpret that post incited against Jews, not Zionists.

Sjögren himself denies that it is he who has published two posts on Twitter, claiming that other than himself have access to the account and can post things on it. Furthermore mean Sjögren that posts should reasonably be interpreted as criticism of the Zionists, do not hate the Jewish people. Therefore, the decision will be appealed to the Court of Appeal.

Realistens chief editor, Bjorn Björkqvist, has written a chronicle of the judgment and short interviews with Sjögren concerning the judgment.

Björkqvist pointed out the following scathing fact:

We have a society where it is free to post pictures where a parliamentary politicians are abused because it can not be taken as threatening, while it is an offense to publish a picture of a Jew munching a flower. Both images expressing criticism of the Sweden Democrats, but only the one that includes violence and blood is legal.

Finally writes Björkqvist that he wants to hate speech law to be abolished when the law is not being used "to prevent the incitement of hatred, but to judge inconvenient voices'.

Swedish journalist union imposes self-censorship
2014 11 05
From: swedenreport.org

Comment: Diversity of opinion, Swedish style! Big congratulations to the Swedish journalist union for doing what they can to terminate Sweden’s long tradition of the freedom of the press and move Sweden even further towards censorship

The Swedish journalist union today unanimously voted through a change in the statutes that effectively muzzles non-leftist journalists in general and anyone writing anything positive about the nationalist party SD in particular.

The new clause is worded exactly like those of other unions, where anyone found to be an SD-supporter is immediately excluded, and the same wording that was used to ban Fox News.

“All union functionaries must [...] enforce and act to in accordance with the principle of people’s equal value,” in popular Orwellian newspeak.

In effect, it makes a free and unbiased media impossible, since anyone found not singing leftist praises equals not supporting “people’s equal value” equals exclusion from the union equals likely unemployment.

In other words, the predominantly leftist journalist union has imposed the same kind of censorship on the few non-leftist journalists that is usually seen in dictatorships.

The Swedish journalist union has about 17 000 members, making it a dominant force amongst the 20 000 journalists.

Swedish artist jailed for criticising the usual protected classes.

http://www.redicecreations.com/radio...RIR-140603.php

Dan Park - Sweden’s Soviet Style Art Censorship & Dying Freedom of Speech
June 3, 2014

Swedish street artist Dan Park faced two prison sentences because of his provocative street art. He was accused of denigration of “folkgrupp,” which is the Swedish term for specially protected segments of the population, such as Muslims, Gypsies, homosexuals and women – but not the original Swedes nor men in general. Both sentences were given for the same pictures. During the first court case, Park had uploaded pictures on his blog to tell his fans what was going on - before any sentence was given. He received another prison sentence for doing that. The court thought that Park had to be locked up because he was having a high risk of repeating the "crime." The prosecutor even demanded a psychiatric assessment to be performed on Park. Dan will tell his story of being jailed for his artwork in a country that professes to uphold freedom of speech. We’ll discuss how any viewpoint that opposes the left is deemed offensive and racist. Dan points out the hypocrisy and lies coming out of “tolerant” Sweden. Left violence against Nationalists and free speech is rampant. Henrik Rönnquist, an art gallery owner who shows Dan’s artwork and also Lars Vilks, who has received death threats for his drawings of Muhammad, also joins the conversation. Since he has shown the artwork of Dan and Lars Vilks, he has been threatened, harassed, had his emails hacked, lost friends and does not go out after dark in fear of his life. We’ll talk about art censorship, Sweden’s fascist society and the union of the left with Islam in all its contradictions.

Lay judges step down over 'racist comments'
Published: 02 Apr 2015

Several lay judges appointed by Sweden's third biggest political party, the Sweden Democrats, could face internal investigation and some have been forced to step down after claims they made racist comments online.

“It is unacceptable. If you belong to our party you don't have these opinions,” party leader Jimmie Åkesson, who is returning to work after months of sick leave, told Swedish tabloid Expressen in an interview published on Thursday.

Together with the Research Group ('Researchgruppen', a network for investigative journalism), Expressen has carried out an investigation of around 6,000 people, from all parties, who became lay judges at the start of 2015.

Lay judges ('nämndemän') are politically appointed and sit alongside professional judges in first and second tier Swedish courts. Eight members of the nationalist Sweden Democrat party have so far been revealed by Expressen to allegedly have written racist messages online.

One lay judge at Södertörn District Court, who has not yet been involved in any court verdicts, is said to have commented on an article on a Swedish far right anti immigration site about violence in the Rosengård area of Malmö in southern Sweden, “deport the dregs to their rubbish piles of countries”. The man, who also works at the Sweden Democrats' parliament secretariat, has since told Expressen he is going to step down from court, but it is understood he will remain at parliament.

“I have spoken to him and this does not affect our confidence in him. And he has already left the assignment as lay judge,” Henrik Vinge, press secretary for the Sweden Democrats, told Expressen.

But several of the other seven lay judges – some of whom have stepped down from their posts after the report, either voluntarily or asked to by the court – risk facing an internal investigation, he said.

It is not the first time members of Sweden's nationalist party come under fire for allegedly making racist comments online. In January, the Deputy Speaker in parliament was reported to have written on Facebook after the Paris attacks, "the religion of peace shows its face". He later edited the post.

The vote of a lay judge carries the same weight as a professional judge in court in Sweden. Although normally appointed by political parties, their assignment is apolitical and they must remain neutral in all cases. But the system is not uncontroversial.

Anne Ramberg, general secretary of the Swedish Bar Association ('Advokatsamfundet', a membership organization for practising lawyers in Sweden), described her shock at hearing about the Expressen report in an interview by Swedish Radio earlier this week.

“It is harrowing. That's how you feel when you see these expressions of extremely racist and inhumane descriptions of people who come here,” she said.

Ramberg went on to criticize the current system of appointing lay judges.

“It has always been a system error in the sense that the political parties appoint the lay judges. This has become especially relevant after the Sweden Democrats got up to 25 percent of the vote in some local authorities.”

“A basic principle in a democratic state is that courts enjoy the public's trust. This is dependent on them being independent, impartial and that the jurors have integrity, meaning that you should not mix your political values with your judicial function.”

The Sweden Democrats are the third largest political group in Sweden, scoring a record 12.9 percent of the vote in September's general election. Åkesson has returned to lead the party after a six-month absence due to exhaustion. In an appearance on popular Swedish talk show 'Skavlan' on Friday he revealed he was taking anti depressants and would be returning to work in stages from March 31st.

According to fresh figures by Sifo released on Thursday, only 37 percent of voters think that Åkesson's return to politics will have a positive effect on his party's popularity in the polls.

Left-wing extremist recruited to Swedish public radio news show
March 22, 2015


My Vingren, well known extremist now employed by the Swedish public radio

An outspoken left-wing extremist with close ties to the most violent anti-fascist groups has gotten a new job: At Swedish public radio. Now she can enjoy a healthy salary from the Swedish taxpayers.

My Vingren is a left-wing feminist and is associated with the group AFA Doku/Researchgruppen who, via legal and illegal methods, gather information about nationalists and/or anyone daring to comment on the political situation in Sweden, and then expose them on the Internet, or give the information directly to criminals in the antifascist underground.

Working closely with Robert Aschberg, grandson of Olof Aschberg (who helped to fund the communist revolution in Russia) this antifa collective have been accepted into the mainstream media, and they’ve been hired by large daily newspapers like Aftonbladet and Expressen as “researchers”.

To further extend the co-operation between mainstream media and the left-wing criminals, the Swedish public radio’s most trusted news show (Ekot, The Echo) has hired My Vingren.

Her job will be in – you guessed it – research. And the Swedish taxpayers will pay her salary.
