Today, Monday 29 November, the case against Swedish Kim Roger Eriksson will go to court for the first time, and Kim may be facing the death penalty.
On the 14th of July Kim Roger Eriksson was arrested for possessing 53 grams of pure meth- amphetamine. Furthermore police found a home laboratory and chemicals used to produce drugs of that kind.
The public prosecutor has raised the case under the Narcotics Law of 1979 and according to the case files, reviewed by ScandAsia, they will charge Kim Roger Eriksson not only with possession of the drugs but also with producing with the purpose of sale.
Charges which, if proven, will most likely result in the death penalty.
When arrested in July, Kim claimed that he was only interested in learning how to produce the meth-amphetamine so he could later re-sell that knowledge.
ScandAsia will follow the case closely and be present in the court room when the case opens this afternoon.
