Raiders Given Community Service


Four Swedish animal rights activists from Umeå arrested following a raid on the mink farm in Umgransele in the spring of 2009 have been sentenced to ommunity service. The three women and one man were arrested in a car with false plates and investigations proved that they had been inside the mink farm. At the trial it was revealed that the operation was well planned, but none of the defendants would answer the prosecutor's questions. In addition to community service for 75 days, they were also sentenced to pay damages of more than SEK 20 000 (£1,700) to the owner of the mink farm.
