"Sensitive information from the investigation has been in the media," says lawyer Mikael Westerlund, who is defending a 20-year-old man suspected of, among other things, kidnapping.
Mikael Westerlund states that there has been a disclosure ban before the trial and that the defense has thus been prevented from talking to the media. At the same time, information that he says is sensitive information has been leaked.
Now that the entire trial will be held behind closed doors, Mikael Westerlund believes that the task of giving the picture his client wants to present is still difficult.
The trial began in Attunda District Court on Monday and is expected to last until just before Christmas.
