Uzbek national Rakhmat Akilov, who has confessed to driving the truck in the April 2017 attack that killed five and injured many others in central Stockholm, will go on trial today accused of terrorism.

Akilov had sworn allegiance to Isis before he stole a truck and ran down pedestrians in the city’s busy Drottninggatan street on April 7th, though the jihadist group never claimed responsibility.


The high-profile trial – described as one of the largest trials in Swedish history – gets under way at Stockholm District Court on Tuesday morning, with no chances being taken on security measures.


Akilov, 39, will be heard behind reinforced glass in the underground security room.


Plaintiffs will be able to follow the trial from an adjacent courtroom.


The trial, which is expected to run until mid-May, will start with prosecutor Hans Ihrman making his case by summarizing the suspicions against Akilov and selected parts of his evidence, followed by a summary by the defence and plaintiffs. This is expected to take three days, if necessary four.


Akilov himself is expected to be heard next week. This will be followed by a number of days of plaintiff hearings, witness hearings and the prosecutor’s and defence’s concluding statements in May.
