New arrests as high court reviews 'honour' killing
The parents of a man convicted of a so-called honour killing in Högsby, southern Sweden in 2005, have been arrested following a decision by the Supreme Court to review the case.
"There will be a remand hearing for them in the Supreme Court tomorrow, Tuesday," said prosecutor Kerstin Eriksson.
The Supreme Court has ruled to allow a retrial in the case of their son, who was 18-years-old at the time, and who remains the only person convicted in the murder of 20-year-old Abbas Rezai.
