According to Dagens Juridik, a suspected terrorist is not permitted to leave Uppsala due to an increased risk of crime. The Swedish Migration Agency initially ordered the man’s deportation with the help of the Act on Closed Youth Care but was unable to proceed due to obstacles, so the man was required to report and subjected to certain coercive measures instead. Last year, Säpo, the Security Police, requested that the man be banned from leaving his municipality to prevent him from meeting with certain groups, as they believed he posed a risk of committing terrorist crimes or other crimes against the security of the kingdom. The Stockholm district court agreed with Säpo’s assessment, and now, the Svea Court of Appeal has rejected the man’s appeal against the residence ban. The court stated that the ban is in keeping with the European Convention and the Convention on the Rights of the Child. A similar case in which Säpo assessed that a suspect could commit terrorist crimes also led to a ban on leaving their municipality, as the Svea Court of Appeal recently decided in the case of a man from Kristianstad.
A terrorist suspect is not allowed to stay outside Uppsala due to increased risk of crime, reports Dagens Juridik.
The Swedish Migration Agency decided in 2019 that the man would be deported from Sweden with the support of the Act on Closed Youth Care (LSU). But there were obstacles to deportation and the man was instead required to report and certain coercive measures.
Last year, the Security Police requested that the man be banned from leaving his home municipality to prevent meetings with certain groups. According to Säpo, there was otherwise a risk that he would commit terrorist crimes or other crimes against the security of the kingdom.
The Stockholm district court followed Säpo’s line with reference to the public interest. Now the Svea Court of Appeal rejects the man’s appeal and notes that the residence ban is not in conflict with the European Convention or the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
In a similar case, the Svea Court of Appeal recently decided that a man is banned from leaving Kristianstad. There too, Säpo assesses that the suspect could commit terrorist crimes.
