Lawyer suspected of gross fraud


Ben Kendall 2012-03-19

A well known criminal lawyer in West Sweden has been arrested on suspicion of gross fraud against creditors.

The lawyer and two other men were arrested on Thursday last week following a joint investigation involving the economic crimes bureau, police and customs.

One of the men owns a trading company in Halland. It is believed that the lawyer helped empty all money from the company. At least half a million kronor was then used to purchase tobacco products from abroad.

The lawyer and company owner are suspected of gross fraud against creditors. The third man was arrested on suspicion of involvement in the illegal cigarette trade.

All three men deny the accusations.

The lawyer is known among Swedish media as he has represented members of criminal gangs, according to Göteborgs-Posten and P4 Göteborg.
