SWEDEN: Increased crime, no-go zones, the refugee crisis - with an ongoing housing crisis, and especially the terrorist threat, are all factors that are about to collapse the Swedish judiciary. Chief prosecutor Pär Andersson in Linköping warns of an ongoing systemic collapse in the police.
- In the long term, and I hope of course we never come there, we see a society where citizens have no trust in the police and take the law into their own hands, says Andersson to Nyheter Idag.
If you think we've never been safer than today, then you'll probably read the wrong papers. Chief prosecutor Pär Andersson talks of a system that is ready to fall apart. He uses the term "systemic collapse" when the newspaper calls to ask questions. And he provides many examples of what no longer works as it should.
He paints a picture which is not far from what the Police Association acting chairman Christer Palmkvist recently told Nyheter Idag. A society where citizens are increasingly losing confidence in the judiciary and for good reason.
- To begin with, one can say that it is government representatives themselves who used this term in the fall. I think what we are seeing now are the first signs of it, says Pär Andersson to the newspaper.
- What I mean with the term systemic collapse is that the rule of law is the foundation of the system. When it starts to fall apart one sees the first signs of the whole system collapsing.
