It will be easier to enforce decisions involving deprivation of liberty


Law enforcement authorities will be given better tools to quickly and effectively find wanted persons and to find aliens who pose a serious security risk. The Riksdag voted in favour of the Government’s proposal. Among other things, the proposal means that it will be possible to use secret coercive measures, such as secret data interception, with the purpose of locating people who are in hiding or have absconded from a decision on arrest or detention or from enforcement of a penalty.  The amendments will come into force on 1 July 2024.
