Norwegian police have requested the extradition of a Swedish man suspected of sexually assaulting children in Norway, Sweden and Thailand. The man is older, but the prosecutor has revealed little about the age of the children or how many were involved.

“There is at least one child in each case,” Leif Görts of the international prosecution office in Stockholm told TT news agency.

The alleged assaults were to have occurred between 1994 and 2003 and possibly even earlier. The statue of limitations may have expired on several of them, Görts said.

The man was arrested on Thursday but the district court did not find sufficient grounds to remand him into custody and he was subsequently released on Saturday.

“They were of the opinion that the Norwegians can summon him by other means,” said Södertörn prosecutor Nils Lundberg.
