At the beginning of May, the verdict fell on the noticeable double murder of Vivalla, which took place on 3 July last year. The murder victims were 22 and 20 years old and, according to the public prosecutor, were their rival gang.
The background to the murders should have been a conflict between the gangs and the motive was revenge for a murder that took place in 2015.
Two of those accused of murder were sentenced to long prison sentences, a third were released from the murder case. Another four people were sentenced; two for an extremely serious attack, one for assault and the fourth for assault.
On Thursday The prosecutors in the case, Krister Peterson and Martina Winslow, left an eight-page page that went well into the appeals court of Göta.
In the first instance, they demand that the whole case be taken over by the court because they believe that a serious legal error has been committed. It should have happened when the court rejected two charges – gross drug offenses and lawsuits – against one of the murderers, a 22-year-old.
The 22-year-old left Sweden, shortly after the murders were committed, but was arrested 1.5 months later at a border crossing between Kosovo and Albania. The court is of the opinion that he was handed over to Sweden on the wrong grounds and that he can therefore only be prosecuted for the murder. "Amazing and hard to understand," writes Chief Prosecutor Petersson about the court's position on the issue, which the 22-year-old also wants to be convicted of crimes.
Furthermore, the prosecutors are very critical of how the district court values large parts of the evidence. The court has not been sufficiently attentive or careful in assessing the evidence presented, the prosecutors said.
They also believe that the court misrepresented various testimonies and rejected the central testimony for unclear reasons.
For example, the prosecutors write & # 39; it is tragic that the court did not even make a serious attempt to analyze its statement & # 39; about one of the testimonials.
Another example is that the prosecutors are of the opinion that the district court is more or less the father of lies when it summarizes the conclusions of the judge. The prosecutors claim that the & # 39; from which the district court has retrieved the information on which it bases its conclusions and that it is & # 39; serious that the court reports the findings in this way & # 39 ;.
In addition, the prosecutors write that "the public prosecutor's office" transcends how the court has placed some of the witness data on the time scale.
It is sharp writings of prosecutors, meaning that the court did not understand or accept the evidence presented in the case.
This is not least the case for the 20-year-old who was released from the murder case. He should be sentenced to 14 years in prison for murder, even the others should receive more severe penalties, prosecutors say:
The 22-year-old must be sentenced to life imprisonment for murder. The 31-year-old man, who returned to Sweden from the IS-controlled area in 2003, should also be sentenced to life, as would the 32-year-old who was sentenced to court for 13 years and 10 months.
One of the two the victims in Vivalla were shot. The other was unmasked before he died for a rough and radical attack using an integral helmet, the plunger of an automatic weapon, a knife and a pair of scissors as weapons. The death penalty, which lasted just over five minutes, was caught on film.
The prosecutors describe the murder as brutal and thoughtless. The victim was in an extremely vulnerable situation and the course of events was delayed. The prosecutors therefore state that it is not about anything other than life.
Even the 31 year old the former IS traveler, who was sentenced to 15 years and 10 months in prison for murder, has appealed against the court's verdict. He wants to be completely acquitted.
The Court of Appeal of Göta will now decide to refer the whole case back to the court, or if only the part concerning the 22-year-old has to be taken over. Alternatively, the prosecutor's claim that the case should be taken over by the court is rejected and the case is dealt with in its entirety in the court.
