Swedish police call for help in identifying suspects after Easter riots

Police are appealing for the public’s help in identifying suspects in the Easter riots of 2022. Images of 51 wanted persons have been published on the police website.

Violent riots broke out in several Swedish cities over the Easter weekend of 2022, with predominantly Muslim immigrant groups setting fire to cars and neighborhoods in connection with the Quran-burning actions of Danish politician Rasmus Paludan. Police, emergency services, and civilians were pelted with rocks, punches, and other projectiles, resulting in numerous injuries.

Last year, the police asked the public for films and pictures in order to identify the course of events and the perpetrators. On Monday, police asked for more help from the public by releasing pictures of 51 suspects from the riot in Sveaparken in Örebro.

– We now need the public’s help to identify about fifty people who are suspected of gross sabotage against blue light operations, said Henrik Dahlström, commanding officer within the Police Authority, according to a press release.

The image and film material is said to have laid the foundation for the investigation. Police describe the investigation as extensive, saying that there are more than 700 hours of film to go through, as well as hundreds of people who were present and need to be identified. So far, 113 people have been arrested.

– It would have been impossible to identify so many people afterwards. But with pictures and films as a basis, we have been able to identify people and link them to their actions, and then assess who is committing crimes, says Dahlström.

The pictures of the suspects can be found on the police website.
