The 35-year-old man suspected of the murder of Lisa Holm, 17, will not appeal the detention order to the Supreme Court. It’s been confirmed by his lawyer, Inger Rönnbäck to SVT Nyheter.
Last week, Deputy Chief Prosecutor Lars-Göran Wennerholm announced that the suspicions against the 35-year-old who is suspected of murdering Lisa Holm, 17, has been strengthened. The District Court went with the prosecutor’s line and extended the man’s arrest until July 28. Something that the 35-year-old and his lawyer, Inger Rönnbäck appealed.
But on Friday, July 3, the Court of Appeal established the detention order and now Inger Rönnbäck announces that her client has decided not to appeal to the Supreme Court.
– It is true that we will not appeal, she says to SVT Nyheter.
35-year-old was arrested June 16 on suspicion of murder. A warrant of arrest which was appealed all the way to the Supreme Court. But when the arrest is now extended and established by the Court of Appeal, Inger Rönnbäck has chosen not to appeal yet again.
– We realize at this stage that an appeal would not lead to any changes. As regards the long detention, we have as clear objections about it and we can always ask for a review by the district court, even if it’s not something we plan now. We put our energy on other things instead, she says to Göteborgs Posten.
