Judged after documenting military installations

“The person is suspected of having illegally documented and disseminated information about several military facilities that are covered by defense secrecy,” Säpo writes.

The district court assesses that the man has revealed a large amount of information about several defense facilities on an internet forum.

The convicted man has never had the aim of going to a foreign power, the judgment states, but the crime is to be judged as serious as the information relates to conditions of great importance for Sweden’s defence.

The acts were committed several years ago. Several other men have been convicted in similar cases.
