I’m in shock, they’re not labeling him a mental case.
Stockholm terror suspect was mentally fit at time of attack, doctors judge
Sweden’s National Board of Forensic Medicine (Rättsmedicinalverket) handed the results of its examination of Rakhmat Akilov to Stockholm District Court on Wednesday, in which it concluded that the Uzbek national was not suffering from any mental issues when the attack was carried out.
The same is true of Akilov’s condition during the investigation, doctors also concluded. As such there is no reason to consider psychiatric care as part of any eventual sentence, they judged.
According to Akilov’s lawyer, the judgement will not impact the investigation.
“This doesn’t affect the investigation at all. This is done regularly in cases of a serious nature, as is this one is. It relates only to the issue of sentencing,” Johan Eriksson told news agency TT.
