Hassan Asad. Palestinian/Jordanian born father of triplets, one blind, one in a wheelchair and one healthy son. He himself has undergone several operations and has a pacemaker. His whole family recently became Swedish citizens but for some reason he was denied it. Apparently the Swedish Secret Service, SÄPO had given confidential material to the immigration officials.
Asad is now to be sent back to Jordan (where he will no doubt be tortured) on the grounds of being a "threat to Swedish Scecurity". And what is he accused of? No one knows. Nor him or his lawyer have been told, nor do the Swedish public or media know.
Sweden is running errands for the US no doubt, just like they did a few years back when they let masked CIA agents take away Ahmed Agiza and Muhammed Al-Zary on Swedish soil! to Egypt without a trial, without being informed of what they had been accused of and being humiliated and tortured by both the agents themselves and Egyptian authority.
The Swedish public went into an uproar when they found out and apologies were made left right centre by the Government saying they were told by the CIA that the men would not be subjected to torture (which by International Law is a prerequisite if one is to leave out ones citizens). Both men returned to Sweden after being away for years.
A big campaign has been initiated, the Swedish Red Cross and many Muslim Organisations and other Swedish professionals are behind it. Let us hope Sweden doesn't make the same mistake again when his case is decided by the supreme court. We could all be in his shoes...
