– During the crime scene investigations that were carried out on site in the Baltic Sea, extensive seizures were made and the area has been carefully documented. Analyzes that have now been carried out show traces of explosives on several of the foreign objects that were found. The advanced analysis work continues in order to be able to draw safer conclusions about the incident, says Mats Ljungqvist in a statement.

The preliminary investigation is very complex and extensive and a continued preliminary investigation must show whether anyone can be suspected of a crime, according to the Prosecutor's Office.

– The cooperation with authorities in Sweden and in other countries works excellently. For the continued work with the preliminary investigation and for the various ongoing collaborations, it is important that we can work in peace and quiet, says Chamber prosecutor Mats Ljungqvist.
