Invitation to a Press Conference: Decision on Prosecution Matters in the Palme Investigation
The Swedish Prosecution Authority and the Swedish Police Authority invite the media to a digital press conference on Wednesday 10 June at 9.30 am. Chief Prosecutor Krister Petersson will present his decision in the case and, together with Head of the Investigation Hans Melander, he will provide details concerning the investigation.
The press conference will be held digitally and broadcasted on both the Swedish Prosecution Authority’s and the Swedish Police Authority’s YouTube channels respectively. The press conference will be interpreted into English and broadcasted on this YouTube-channel. There will be the opportunity to conduct individual interviews afterwards. This means that journalists cannot be physically present at the press conference. The reason for this is that we estimate that more than 50 people would be present in the conference room during a physical press conference. Pre-registered journalists will be able to place questions in an open Q&A session via a link directly after the presentations.
Individual interviews afterwards
Following the press conference, Chief Prosecutor Krister Petersson will be available via Skype or telephone. This is due to him belonging to a risk group.
Head of the Investigation Hans Melander will be physically present to the media after the press conference.
Compulsory registration to question and answer session and individual interviews
Journalists who wish to participate in the Q&A session must register in advance. One person per media house will have the opportunity to place questions during the open session. Due to time constraints, each journalist can place only one or two questions. Register at firstname.lastname@example.org by e-mailing a picture of your press credential or a certificate from your editorial client. When you receive confirmation of your registration, you will also receive information on how to connect digitally to the press conference and how the Q&A session will operate.
Journalists who wish to interview Chief Prosecutor Krister Petersson afterwards must register at email@example.com. Please provide the same information as for the Q&A session, as well as to which e-mail address you wish to receive the invitation. You will receive a time slot in your final invitation.
If you wish to interview Head of Investigation, Hans Melander, who will be physically present following the press conference, please send an interview inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All registrations must be received before 3 pm on Monday 8 June.
Please note that if there are an exceptional number of questions during the Q&A session on 10 June and/or requests for individual interviews, then due to time constraints we may have to limit the number of journalists who are able to place questions.
Chief Prosecutor Krister Petersson will also be available for interviews on 11 and 12 June at 10 am–3 pm. If necessary, we will get back to journalists who could not be prioritized on 10 June.
