Sweden yet to decide on Aceh case
Sweden has yet to decide whether to send a delegation of police and prosecutors to
interview Aceh rebels in Indonesia.
Chief prosecutor Tomas Lindstrand says he has first to review documents that were
handed over by Indonesien officials during a visit to Sweden last week.
Indonesia has delivered more than 1,000 pages in which they said there was new
evidence linking Aceh separatists exiled in Sweden to terror acts in Aceh and other
parts of Indonesia.
Mr Lindstrand says whether or not Sweden decides to send a delegation will depend
on his review of the material.
His remarks came a day after Indonesien Foreign Minister Hassan Wirayuda stated
that Sweden would send a delegation of police and prosecutors to the country.
Indonesia has asked Sweden to curb the activities of Free Aceh Movement leaders
exiled in Stockholm.
