Crime-Surge Sweden Mulls Hand Grenade Amnesty Proposed After Rise in Attacks


After a significant rise in the number of hand grenade attacks, Swedish authorities are proposing a bill of amnesty for those willing to turn in their weapons.

The amnesty bill is designed to encourage those in possession of hand grenades to give them in to police and get them off the streets. The bill is scheduled to be introduced to the Swedish parliament in February next year and will likely see a general amnesty occur for three months between October and January 2019, SVT reports.

Grenade attacks have increased substantially in recent years. In 2014, Swedish police recorded only eight cases that involved the use of hand grenades while 2016 saw that number grow to 52. The increase has led Sweden to rival Mexico in the prevalence of hand grenade attacks.
