The investigation is now being led by District Prosecutor Tove Kullberg at the National Public Prosecution Department's Unit against Organised Crime (RIO).

– We do not currently have an indication of when criminal proceedings can begin. But it will probably take several months, she says.

Kb/NSk has been in contact with the lawyers who are representing the men from Kristianstad. Martin Nilsson, who is defending the 28-year-old from the Åhus area, did not want to give a statement at all.

Caroline Nord, who is representing the Kristianstad resident, states that her client denies the charges.
