Vilk's case: prosecutor challenges acquittal of suspects


Ben Kendall 2012-02-09

The acquittal of three men that were suspected of conspiring to murder artist Lars Vilks, was challenged on Wednesday. Chief prosecutor Agnetha Hilding Qvarnström wants the case to go to the Court of Appeal.

"I think this needs to be tried in another court," says Agneta Hilding Qvarnström in a press release.

The three men were arrested at Central Station in Gothenburg on September 10 last year. They were arrested on suspicions of planning the murder of controversial artist Lars Vilks in connection to the Gothenburg International Art Biennial at Röda sten.

They were acquitted of conspiring to commit murder by the Gothenburg District Court on January 20.
