A couple of weeks ago, Evelina Lindberg lost her personal support. After that announcement, 77-year-old Monica Isaksson decided to start a petition for her to get her support back.

After the social welfare board's open meeting, Monica handed over the signatures to the board's chairman Sven-Gösta Pettersson (S).

"I couldn't just watch anymore, I felt that I needed to do something and then I came up with a petition," says Isaksson.

"Does not comment on individual cases"

But the chairman of the social welfare board and the head of social services in Piteå stand by their guideline not to comment on individual cases.

"We will register the petition and put an administrator on it. And then we will prepare for it, says Sven-Gösta Pettersson (S).
