According to the prosecutor, the investigation should answer three central questions:
- Is it possible to prove that the alleged crimes committed in Block 5A by the military and militias associated with the government took place during the relevant period?
- In this case, were individuals with links to Sweden aware of these crimes?
- Have these people in any way encouraged crimes by “word or deed” – that is to say, have they, through their actions, decisions, psychological influence or in any other way, encouraged the perpetrators in their decisions to commit criminal acts?
