The Kalmar-based inspector forgot her weapon after answering nature's call at the city's district court on July 1st last year. But the fact that the gun was returned to her before falling into the wrong hands was not enough to prevent the matter from being reported to her superiors.
"By failing to keep control of your weapon, with the consequence that it was left behind in the toilets, you have displayed insufficient care and heedfulness," writes the police disciplinary committee in its ruling.
The committee added that the incident merited more than just a standard warning since the lavatories were open to the general public.
