Scandinavian country deals with dissent by punishing pensions for Facebook posts
A 74-year-old woman in Stockholm was prosecuted and fined for a Facebook post in which she criticized the number of African migrants arriving in Sweden.
According to the prosecution, the woman responded to an article about African immigrants by writing, “Why do these individuals not go home to Africa again.”
The woman also wrote other posts that the prosecution said were “negative to Muslims and immigration.”
The pensioner was convicted for “breach of opinion against a public group” and will now have to pay a fine of 12,250 SEK (around $1500 dollars).
