Over the past year, the grave of 11-year-old Ebba Åkerlund, one of the victims of the Stockholm truck attack in April 2017, has been defiled about 30 times, the magazine Samtiden reported. (Full Story Below)
After the police proved unable to arrest anyone for this crime, Ebba’s father, Stefan Åkerlund took the matters into own hands to stop the desecration. By his own admission, he guarded the graveyard at night until he finally caught the perpetrator red-handed. However, despite being detained by the police, the man was released without further action.
“I personally caught him in the act of desecration, when he was pouring stearin on Ebba’s grave; the police released him after only one hour in custody,” Stefan Åkerlund wrote on his Facebook page, sarcastically praising the police for “good work.” “That’s what my nightly visits to the graveyard were worth.”
According to Stefan Åkerlund, the man violating his daughter’s grave is an illegal alien whom the authorities cannot expel.
“How can a person condemned to expulsion and barred from Sweden until 2019-02-27 have never even left the country in the first place?” Åkerlund asked rhetorically, stressing that the man in question was taken to the police several times, while facing a year’s imprisonment for staying in Sweden illegally.
According to Åkerlund, the man also vandalized other graves at the same cemetery, including that of Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme, whose murder in 1986 remains unsolved as of today.
“Since late March, he’s damaged Isabell’s tomb at Ebba’s cemetery so badly that her mother had to replace the headstone. About six weeks ago, Olof Palme’s headstone was totally destroyed by stearin that won’t come off. Ebba’s tomb has been desecrated over 30 times,” Åkerlund wrote.
Åkerlund lost his daughter in the Stockholm truck attack in 2017, when fundamentalist Muslim illegal immigrant Rakhmat Akilov plowed a truck into a crowd of pedestrians. He has spared no words in his criticism of the Swedish government, which he holds responsible for her death.
“A headless immigration policy and authorities that did not do their job led to my daughter’s death, and my own life is ruined forever,” Åkerlund wrote in an opinion piece in the daily newspaper Expressen, calling for an independent commission to investigate the terrorist attack on Drottningsgatan.
“What happened to the wonderful Sweden that I once grew up in?” Åkerlund asked rhetorically on Facebook.
Åkerlund’s piercing Facebook post became of the most-shared in Sweden, with dozens of Swedes expressing their condolences and sympathy for the bereaved, as well as indignation over the repeated acts of vandalism.
CRIME. Ebba Åkerlund’s grave is repeatedly violated, even though the police know who the perpetrator is. Ebba’s father has taken the man to work and states that it is an expulsion sentence that remains in the country. Just like the terrorist Akilov who murdered Ebba.
The government that is unable to expel those who cannot stay in the country continues to cause suffering. Ebba, 11, was one of the victims of the terrorist attack in April 2017. The terrorist Akilov who was convicted of the death would be expelled but remained in the country and could commit the terrorist attack.
But the suffering for Ebba’s relatives continues. After Ebba’s grave has been violated about 30 times since April without the police having arrested anyone, Ebba’s father Stefan Åkerlund has visited the burial ground at night and taken the man to work. But even if he is arrested by the police, he is released without action.
Stefan Åkerlund writes on Facebook:
“I personally took him to the bar when he was standing and pouring stearin on Ebba’s object, the police released him after 1 hour in detention” good job “. That’s what my nightly visits to the burial place are worth. “
Should be expelled
According to Stefan Åkerlund, the man who violates his dead daughter is a deported man who the authorities are unable to get out of the country.
“How can it be that a person who is sentenced for expulsion and cannot return to Sweden before 2019-02-27 has never left the country. Has been taken a number of times without the judgment being enforced, and that he will have one year’s imprisonment if he is staying in Sweden meanwhile. ”
Excavated more The
man has buried several graves in the cemetery where Ebba is located, according to Stefan Åkerlund.
“He has since late March buried Isabell’s grave, which is located at Ebba’s cemetery so heavily that her mother has had to remove the gravestone because it has been completely destroyed by all the stearin he poured over it. Olof Palme’s tombstone totally destroyed 6 weeks ago by stearin that will never ever disappear and Ebba’s grave he has buried over 30 times late in May. “
Even yesterday, the man was there.
“As late as an hour ago he was there and poked Ebba’s Tomb, you get so tired,”
Responsible for the daughter’s death
Stefan Åkerlund, in his despair after losing his daughter, has strongly criticized the government, as he is responsible for the daughter’s death.
“A headless migration policy and authorities that did not do their job led to my daughter being murdered and that my own life was forever destroyed”, he wrote in a debate article. (FULL TRANSCRIPT BELOW)
Stefan Åkerlund wants an independent accident committee whose first case is to be the terrorist act on Drottninggatan.
“Akilov received his expulsion decision six months before he carried out his assassination, a deed that took place almost three months after he had left the country. But no one tried to find him, no one investigated if he was at his home address. That the Migration Board and the police did not do their job and rejected a person who was here illegally, resulted in my daughter losing her life and that my own life was forever destroyed. Similar losses have been made to other relatives of the murdered. “
DEBATE. On April 7 last year, my eleven-year-old daughter Ebba died and four more people died in the terrorist attack in central Stockholm. It didn’t have to happen. If the Swedish state – and by extension the country’s political leadership in recent decades – had acted as if it were entitled to demand a modern, orderly and resource-rich society, then Rakhmat Akilov had never been near Drottninggatan that day. He had not even been to Sweden.
Presumably, we all agree that it is impossible for a state to ensure that no terrorist acts occur on its territory. There is probably also a consensus that a state can act so that the risk of such crimes increases or decreases. Then the question arises: what is a “reasonable level of terror” in a society? When has the state taken sufficient steps and steps to minimize the risk of terrorist acts, without devoting unreasonable resources or renouncing citizens’ rights and freedoms.
Akilov could stay undisturbed in Sweden
Akilov received his expulsion decision six months before he carried out his assassination, a deed that took place almost three months after he had left the country. But no one tried to find him, no one investigated if he was at his home address. That the Migration Board and the police did not do their job and rejected a person who was here illegally, resulted in my daughter losing her life and that my own life was forever destroyed. Similar losses have been made to other relatives of the murdered.
Ebba’s murderers came to Sweden because of a headless asylum and migration policy that is unprecedented in Europe, indeed in the whole world. And he remained in Sweden because of a dysfunctional state administration, partly as a result of the congestion that the policy pursued had created. It is the established parties in the Riksdag – both the Alliance and the Red Greens – that bear responsibility for that policy. It is also those who bear the responsibility for anyone who questioned that policy – also in their own direction – being branded.
The decision makers are afraid
But it doesn’t end there. After the death, these politicians have done nothing to investigate how it could happen. How society could have acted differently to prevent the crime. Or if there are lessons to be learned that can reduce the risk of something similar happening again. Is it not strange that in a country that has a special authority – The Accident Investigation Board of Norway – which investigates incidents even when two aircraft NEXT are colliding with each other, do not also thoroughly investigate the reasons behind the country’s so far largest terrorist act where five people were murdered? Can the reason be that decision makers are simply too worried about being identified in such an investigation to want to appoint one?
Sweden, as I want it to be, a safe and functioning society and an example abroad, is obviously no longer there. However, I have decided to try to use my grief, my bitterness and anger to something constructive, to try to make Sweden a little better.
Those responsible must be investigated
Therefore, I want to – together with the business community and civil society – take the initiative for a new permanent accident commission that should be decoupled from the state. Its purpose is to improve the Swedish state’s effectiveness in maintaining its monopoly of violence. The aim of the Commission’s work is that fewer people in Sweden should be injured or killed because of deficiencies in the execution of this for the state’s original and central task. This should be done in a way that is customary for accident commissions. When extensive personal injury through criminal activity occurs because the state may have mismanaged its mission, the Commission shall seek out facts, analyze the causes of the deficiencies, store and disseminate those facts and propose measures based on the analyzes that the Commission considers would reduce the risk of similar crimes in the future.
The task includes assessing the responsibility of the authorities and individual executives for the occurrence and proposing appropriate consequences for those responsible. The Accident Investigation Board’s first case shall be the terrorist attack on Drottninggatan 2017.
