Poland asks Sweden to probe Auschwitz theft
“We are askingÂ SwedishÂ justice authorities to question three people, all of
them Swedish citizens, in the presence of our prosecutors investigating the
case,” Krakow regional prosecutor spokeswomanÂ Boguslawa MarcinkowskaÂ toldAFP.
“The questioning is very important to the investigation,” she added, but she refused to reveal the identity of the persons to be questioned.
Polish media reports say that Swedish millionaire Lars-GÃ¶ran WahlstrÃ¶m allegedly askedÂ Anders HÃ¶gstrÃ¶mÂ to arrange the theft late last year of the infamous sign.
Last week, Polish court remanded in custody HÃ¶gstrÃ¶m, a former leader of the Swedish far-right, until September 9th.
HÃ¶gstrÃ¶m was extradited toÂ PolandÂ from Sweden in April and initially remanded for three months to give prosecutors probing the theft more time to question him. HÃ¶gstrÃ¶m was arrested in Sweden on a Polish warrant in February. He risks 10 years in prison if convicted.
