Authority neglected - Växjö resident won't be extradited to the US
A man living in Växjö was suspected of fraud in the United States. The Prison Service failed to put him on an airplane after being detained for seven months in Växjö.
Now the Americans have chosen to close the case and thus the man is not extradited.
– The Prison Service failed. They should have left the suspect at Arlanda but had failed to set aside staff for it. When it was discovered, it was too late to drive him out and the plane, a regular passenger flight to the United States, had already been lifted, says Prosecutor Michael Hansson at the National Unit against International and Organized Crime in Malmö to Smålandsposten.
