2019-08-13T10:58:25.887Z

During Monday night and the night until Tuesday, some 150 cars were set on fire in Western Sweden. A total of six people are suspected and three of them arrested after the fires. Reactions have come from several directions.



This has happened:

Monday 13/8

Just before 21, the first fire alarms come. People lit a fire on cars in Hjällbo. Shortly thereafter, the police receive several calls about people walking in a parking lot on Frölunda square and lighting a fire on cars.

At about the same time, people in Trollhättan start lighting fires on cars, pallets and tires. And in Lysekil, a moped was set on fire.

At 23 o'clock there was another alarm about several car fires in Gårdsten and Tynnered.

There is speculation on the internet about who is behind the fires. These include speculation about young people in the area and right-wing extremists.

Tuesday 14/8

Several politicians react to the car fires. This includes Prime Minister Stefan Löfven (S) who, in an interview with Ekot, said: "I'm getting pissed, what the hell are you doing?". Moderate party leader Ulf Kristersson (M) also commented in a post on his Facebook page. “In practice, Sweden has tolerated this for far too long. Now it simply has to end, ”he writes.

Police talk during the day with parents of youngsters who should have been at the site where car fires have taken place. Police are preparing for the evening and fear that new car fires will take place. They also urge adults to walk out into the streets during Tuesday night.

On Tuesday, two men, 19 and 20 years old, were arrested on suspicion of serious murder and violent riot following Monday night's fire in Västra Frölunda. Another young man is wanted.

During the day, Prime Minister Stefan Löven (S) Frölunda also visits.

The first major party leadership debate after the summer is organized on Monday evening in Gothenburg by Expressen and Dagens Industri. First of all, Monday's car fires caught on.

Deputy regional police chief tells SVT News during the evening that criminals should be suspended from their areas.

Speculation about perpetrators and motives continues online.

Wednesday 15/8

During the night, Stefan Löfven (S), together with Ann-Sofia Hermansson (S), spent the night hiking with a group of adults in Tynnered.

Additional cars are set on fire in Gothenburg and Borås as well as a caravan in Vänersborg. It is unclear if the fires are related to Monday's.

However, it is much calmer this night. Chamber Prosecutor Mats Ihlbom says that nothing indicates that the events should have a political motive.

In the morning, the third person in Turkey, also a 19-year-old, is arrested, he is suspected of serious murder and an extradition is requested from him.

Several politicians comment on how they want to solve the problems.

Ester Pollack, associate professor at the Department of Media Studies at Stockholm University, comments that it is unfortunate that politicians speculate in the car fires: “Anyone who wants to take responsibility should think about whether it is well thought out. I have full understanding that people are upset, but politicians can think a little before facts are on the table. "

During Wednesday night, the police assumed that a total of six people are suspected of the various car fires in Gothenburg. Three of them are previously arrested and three have been released. However, suspicions against them remain.

Thursday 16/8

One person was pleaded likely to be suspected of arson and violent riot, the prosecutor decided today.

Two men, 19 and 20 years old, have been sitting arrested reasonably suspected of arson and violent riots.

A third person is arrested, but in his absence when he is in the custody of the Turkish police. Work continues on the car fires in several places.

Friday 17/8

A 20-year-old man is most likely arrested on suspicion of murder after the car fire in Gothenburg.

The prosecutor does not want to comment on the evidence against the man.

However, he can confirm that the police have secured "a lot" of blood from the fire places after someone or someone cut themselves on broken glass.

The 20-year-old man was arrested on Tuesday along with a 19-year-old man suspected of being involved in car fires in Västra Frölunda on Monday. The 19-year-old has since been released on foot because of weaker evidence, but is still relevant in the investigation.
