But there are risks….Also, an alarming report indicates that women with disabilities are one of the most highly victimised groups in Swedish society.

Africa’s Zimbabwe Problem

by Brett D. Schaefer and Marian L. Tupy

Brett D. Schaefer is Jay Kingham Fellow in International Regulatory Affairs in the Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom, a division of the Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Institute for International Studies at the Heritage Foundation and Marian L. Tupy is a policy analyst at the Cato Institute’s Center for Global Liberty and Prosperity.

Zimbabwe was recently elected to chair the U.N. Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD), to the dismay of human-rights groups and nations, like the United States, that would like the United Nations to take its responsibilities seriously. This election is more than a travesty; it is a cruel demonstration of disregard for the suffering of the people of Zimbabwe on the part of the U.N. and those African countries that helped Zimbabwe to the chairmanship.

Swedish Motor Cycle Gang Connected in Stolen Property Fencing Ring

Seven men, several of them with connections to Bandidos, one of the criminal motor cycle gangs here in Sweden, were taken into police custody on Wednesday, accused of involvment in several major robberies that had taken place during the spring in Borås, Mölnlycke, Mölndal and Gothenburg (these locations are pretty close together, they all could be considered part of the “Gothenburg region”).

Three men have already been in police custody for a while, accused of having fenced stolen cellphones.

It was at 3 am on the morning of May 15th that the police raided an apartment on Rimfrostgatan out on Hisingen. The 38-year old tennant was arrested together with three other men. In the apartment, the police found a large number of stolen cellphones.
The 38-year old used to run a store on Hisingen but then found himself in personal bankruptcy with large debts. He told the police during questioning that he had been contacted by “a buddy”, a 21-year old man, who just happens to be the brother of one of the men convicted for the robbery at Landvetter airport last year. The 21-year old said that HE had a friend who wanted to sell cellphones. They then went to a house to pick up the cellphones.

The 38-year old explained that “the tax people take all the money I make so I try to make a little business on the side…” He also said that “everybody” knows that he is in trouble and that he “wants to work or buy and sell”.

The 38-year old, the 21-year old friend and the man who handed over the cellphones to them were arrested, and a fourth man was taken into custody but the evidence against him weren’t strong enough to hold him.

The investigation continued, and on Monday morning the police hit another ten locations, among them the Bandidos clubhouse on Marieholmsgatan in Gothenburg. Nine people were taken into custody, and on Tuesday seven of them were put in jail.

Among the seven there is a 30-year old Bandidos-member, who begun his criminal career in the so called “BMW-gang” several years ago. This gang were known for this particular type of break ins and robberies (“smash-and-grab”) that the people in custody are now accused of.

The 30-year old Bandidos-member was also a suspect in the Landvetter airport robbery but was never prosecuted.

Another one of the men in custody is a 22-year old member of the Bandido’s supporter club, known as the “X-team”.

The initial trial hearings began on Wednesday morning.

Gunshots At Swedish Police In Stockholm – Armed Bandits Escape

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , , — entry @ 15:10PM


Robbers opened fire on police officers in Stockholm on Tuesday
following a raid on a secure cash transport vehicle.

The police got an alarm shortly after lunch time, about a security
guard being robbed of the bags of money that he had just collected at
a Konsum grocery store. The robbery was carried out as the guard
returned to his vehicle outside the store in Täby, in northern

The armed robber escaped together with an accomplice, who was
waiting in a getaway car nearby the cash transport.

The robbers made away in the car, and were later seen by a witness
changing into a green Volkswagen Passat in Roslags Näsby. They
then drove towards central Solna, also in the north of Stockholm.

Police caught up with the car, whereupon the robbers fired shots
at the police car.

The police immediately stopped their car, at that point it wasn’t
a good idea to pursuit the car chase. The police were completely
surprised when the men opened fire, and did not respond to it.

It is not known how many shots were fired. Apparently a gate post
of a nearby house had been shot at, the police were examining bullets
and bullet holes on both the police car and the gate post.

The getaway car was abandoned on Östervägen in Solna,
which has now been sealed off by police.

Neither the police officers nor the security guard were harmed
during the robbery.

An investigation has been started into the incident, according to
police spokeswoman Ann-Charlotte Wejnäs. Both getaway cars have
been impounded by police, and witnesses in the area are being

Apparently, the two robbers continued on foot, and as they are
both armed, the police have about 30 patrols out, heavily armed with
machine guns, wearing bullet proof vests, scouting the area, as well
as several helicopters.

When the second getaway car was found, the police sent a SWAT team
to an address nearby where the robbers might be hiding out, and they
entered the house and stormed two apartments where they thought the
robbers might be hiding – only to find them both empty.

The police had sealed off the area around the house where they
thought the robbers might be hiding, and several other apartment
houses around it had been sealed off as well, the people living there
had to go in and out through back doors all afternoon. The house
where the suspects were believed to be hiding was completely off

Apparently they now have descriptions of what both men look like,
they didn’t wear masks or anything, but as of yet the police does not
want to go into any more details.
