    The case of a 42 year old man suspected of sending threatening letters to 21 Swedish ministers and other well-known people is today being prosecuted at Stockholm District Court. He is also accused of attempted murder after sending a letter bomb to a company in the UK. The prosecutor will be available to the media this afternoon.

    The man is suspected of having sent letters in Sweden, which contained verbal threats as well as white powders which were found to be harmless on analysis. A total of 26 people received threatening letters. “I am of the view that the man intended to put the recipients in extreme fear. The crimes are serious as the threats were clearly strengthened by the presence of a white powder in each letter, which appeared poisonous or explosive. The threat to elected officials is particularly serious as it is a threat to democracy," states the Public Prosecutor, Eva Wintzell. The man is also suspected of attempted murder of four people in the UK after they received a letter bomb sent by the man. Case number:  Stockholm District Court B 17019-17 Contact  Public Prosecutor Eva Wintzell at the National Unit against Organised Crime, is available today 15 August between 13:00-15:00 by telephone +46 10 562 54 60.
