UPDATED: A man detained by a Gothenburg court on suspicion of committing murder in Syria has been released from custody pending an ongoing investigation.

On Thursday an appeals court tore up last week’s decision by Gothenburg District Court to remand the 32-year-old Swedish citizen in custody on suspicion of terrorist crimes in war-torn Syria in the spring of 2013.

According to the appeals court the health condition of the man, who is in a wheelchair and struggles to speak, prevents him from obstructing the ongoing investigation.

He was however forced to hand over his passport and was told he was not allowed to leave Gothenburg pending the probe.
