The woman works with access to secret records in law enforcement. These are records that are strictly confidential and can only be used for official purposes.

In the autumn, a report was made to the police's Special Investigations Department about the incident, which allegedly took place in April 2018.

According to Expressen, the woman says in police questioning that she made the hit on behalf of an acquaintance and therefore considers that she is not guilty of a crime.

The woman's acquaintance has been suspected of instigating the crime but has been cleared by prosecutors.

The woman will be tried in Solna District Court. The prosecutor will ask for a fine.
