‘Demonstration of Power’: Criminal Gangs Impose ‘Curfew’ on Inhabitants of Swedish No-Go Zone

Swedish Interior Minister Mikael Damberg condemned the gangs for acting with impunity and stressed that no criminals should be allowed to decide what others should and shouldn’t do, Sputnik reports.

Inhabitants in the Stockholm suburb of Tensta have been told to stay indoors after 6 pm – not by the police or the authorities, but by criminal gangs who call the shots in the area.

The police initially noticed that there were unusually few people in Tensta in the evenings in late August. Later, they received tips that gangsters had threatened people with weapons and violence to force them indoors.

“There were people, gang members, who were out telling people that they shouldn’t be going out after 6 pm, and it spread quickly to all inhabitants,” police chief in Rinkeby Therese Rosengren told TV4. According to her, potential “lawbreakers” were threatened with serious violence.

The news quickly reached the upper echelons of power. Swedish Interior Minister Mikael Damberg condemned the gangs for acting with impunity.
