Sweden releases suspected Russian spy from custody


COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — A Swedish prosecutor said Friday a computer specialist suspected of spying for Russia has been released from custody.

Mats Ljungqvist says the evidence against Kristian Dmitrievski “is such that the suspect cannot complicate the investigation.” Ljungqvist said he couldn’t comment further because the case is “sensitive.”

Dmitrievski, a 45-year-old naturalized Swedish citizen who previously held a Russian passport, was arrested Feb. 26 by Sweden’s domestic security agency SAPO as he met with a Russian intelligence officer working at Russia’s Embassy in Stockholm under diplomatic cover.
