The Supreme Administrative Court of Sweden on 26 March 2019 threw out an appeal by defense lawyers of Lundin Petroleum. They demanded the Court to overrule the October 2018 decision by the Government to allow the prosecution of Alex Schneiter and Ian Lundin for war crimes, arguing that two Government ministers, including the Minister of Justice, who had been involved in making the decision, were not in an independent position. Legal observers have questioned the motivation behind the appeal, which did not seem to have any legal merit, as the Government is bound to only consider proportionality and the national interest, not the case itself.
