The ad campaign by the anti-immigration Sweden Democrat party, which is aimed at tourists, includes images of people sleeping on the streets and huge signs in English apologizing for begging in the capital.

“Sorry about the mess here in Sweden. We have a serious problem with forced begging! International gangs profit from people’s desperation. Our goverment [sic] won’t do what’s needed,” read messages on billboards above the escalators at Stockholm’s Östermalmstorg station.

The campaign has been hit with a wave of criticism since it appeared on Monday.

By Tuesday afternoon 56 reports had been handed over to the Chancellor of Justice (Justitiekanslern), the ombudsman which investigates transgressions of freedom of speech and freedom of press in Sweden. A spokesman for the body said an investigation had been launched.

“The freedom of press violation that could apply is hate speech. We prioritize such cases and should have a decision ready in two weeks, perhaps even this week,” David Löfgren told the TT newswire.
