– I have to be told what happened, I do not want to judge anyone, but it must not happen more times. Somewhere you have to find what went wrong, says brother Tord Fransson, 75.

According to a lex Sarah report drawn up by the municipality's social administration, the food packages were missing because the municipality happened to send important papers about the case to the wrong unit.
