Keeping names secret: “Risk of reprisals”

The prosecutor has previously chosen to withhold the names of the suspects in the murder.

– Given the situation we have in Sweden, I have chosen to keep the names confidential as there is a risk of retaliation against relatives, senior prosecutor Marina Chirakova has previously told SVT.
