It was on the evening of December 12, 2019 that Joakim Lamotte was surrounded and attacked by a masked immigrant mob of about 50 people during a riot in the ghetto Kronogården in Trollhättan.

In Lamottes live broadcast from the event, you saw how the very aggressive mob called him “pussy”, “gay”, “whore”, “whore” and similar reports.

A date has now been set for the trial of the man suspected of stealing Joakim Lamotte's equipment in connection with the riot.

The hearing will be held in Vänersborg District Court on 2 and 3 May – almost two and a half. years after the riots took place. Lamotte himself will be present to testify.

“It is bizarre how slowly the legal machinery spins in Sweden. In my opinion, it is shameful that victims of crime have to wait several years before any justice is done. In addition, it is unreasonable that the perpetrator during this time is allowed to run free in society,” writes Joakim Lamotte on Facebook.

The 25-year-old man is suspected of weapons offenses, threats against an official, offenses against the knife law, illegal driving, drunk driving, drug offenses, unlawful threats and aggravated theft. He has previously been convicted of a number of other crimes.

The man is suspected, among other things, of having threatened several police officers in Trollhättan. For example, he has told a female police officer that he should “fuck her” and “warned” other police officers and said that he should “fuck their mothers”, according to the preliminary investigation.

The police investigation also includes material from the police's body cameras in connection with the riots in Kronogården on 12 December 2019.

A video, which Joakim Lamotte has posted on Instagram, shows how the mob shouts insults at the journalist and demands that the police “get rid” of him from the place.

A policeman tries in vain to reason with the gangsters.

– Hassan, sorry, Hassan! I'm not putting on you, the policeman says when one of the men accuses him of being pushed.
