Åke Green acquitted

Åke Green was acquitted by the Supreme Court of Sweden today.

The Court found that Green’s inflammatory language against homosexuals contravened the Swedish hate crime legislation but under the circumstances a sentence against him would most likely be considered by the European Court of Human Rights as a breach of the European Convention on Human Rights.

The sentence can be read in Swedish at the site of the Swedish Supreme Court.
