The Swedish city of Malmö City provided a criminal gang with an all inclusive luxury flat, which they used as a base for drugs and bombs.
Criminals in Malmö were given a luxury flat including food and cleaning help. But instead of rehabilitation, the flat became a base, where explosives and cocaine were found by the police.
Two men from a gang in multicultural Rosengård received the 180 square meter, five room flat, in Malmö City centre last year.
The flat is the company’s most exclusive, and has a fireplace and balcony. When the men refused to clean, they also received cleaning help.
However, this was not appreciated – one of them promised in a text to “mop the maid’s face and throw her off the balcony” if she woke him up at 1 pm.
The social services paid, for just one of the men, €4500 a month. In total, Malmö city paid €7 million to the housing company and this without procurement.
To stay at the free accommodation, one must not commit crimes. A woman on the board of the company, says in an interview that it was difficult to get the residents to do as she said and that there were many “discussions”.
The Work and Social Administration in Malmö is responsible for placing the clients in the accommodation. Katarina Lindeberg, Head of Division, says that they will review the information that has been obtained.
The company does not want to comment, but says that perhaps it was wrong to place so many from the same criminal gang together. However, they “just wanted to help”.
