Sweden: Customs to be allowed to seize hand grenades

Sweden: Customs to be allowed to seize hand grenades
SWEDEN: Customs should get increased abilities to stop the influx of hand grenades to Sweden, suggests the government.

The grenade attack on an apartment in Gothenburg last month when an 8-year-old boy was killed has stirred up emotions. Moreover, the incident put the focus on the growing use of hand grenades by criminals in the country.

To try to stop the influx of hand grenades, government investigators now propose that customs should get more power. In the future, the customs officials themselves will be allowed to seize hand grenades and other explosives at border controls, and not as today; being forced to request assistance from the police.

- This was long awaited. Previously we have only been able to watch hand grenades passing over the border, says Jonas Karlsson at the Customs Administration, to SVT.

- We have had an alarmingly high use of hand grenades, said Interior Minister Anders Ygeman. The government has already significantly tightened the penalty and now we move on and improve customs' ability to stop the hand grenades.
