Description

In December 2013 36-year-old Fidel Ugo from Nigeria got stabbed in a Stockholm suburb by a group of Nazis, and he almost blead to death. The police investigation into the knife attack was soon discontinued and no one was charged for this obvious hate crime. When the reporters of SVT's current affairs magazine Mission Investigate starts scrutinizing the case they soon identify the perpetrators as members of a nazi organisation called The Swedish Resistance Movement (SMR). The reportage has been called the most important in Mission Investigate's history and gained enormous attention when aired in Sweden in April 2014. The police was heavily criticized for its shoddy investigation, but after the reportage was broadcast the case was reopened again. Three members of SMR are now suspected of attempted murder and they face up to 8 years in prison.
