An Uzbek migrant has been arrested in Sweden this week on suspicion of terrorism, despite previously being praised as an example of 'successful integration.'

The man, who is said to be in his 30s, had previously been deported from the country and is also a citizen of Kazakhstan.

Reports say he was driving near the Stortorget square in Östersund when he was pulled over by armed police and arrested with investigators finding items in his car believed to for a potential murder, according to Nyheter Idag.

According to witnesses, the man had been driving strangely but said he did not appear threatening.

One witness said they assumed the man was being arrested for being intoxicated while driving.

The migrant had previously been deported from Sweden in 2016, but was back in the country on a temporary residency permit, according to newspaper Expressen.

He had initially come to Sweden in 2012 claiming asylum after his family had been threatened because his father had prosecuted a mafia boss.

But he later admitted the story was a fabrication.

A friend of the man, who had come to Sweden with him, claimed:

“They’re a fantastic family. They wanted to become Swedes properly, live as we do.”
