Rakhmat Akilov, the chief suspect in last week‘s truck attack in central Stockholm, "admits terrorist crimes," his lawyer Johan Eriksson told a court Tuesday during a remand hearing.

Stockholm (dpa) -  Eriksson said that the 39-year-old man from Uzbeikstan did not contest the prosecution‘s request that he be held on remand.

Deputy chief prosecutor Hans Ihrman earlier said Akilov was suspected of terrorist crimes in connection with Friday‘s attack.

Four people died and 15 were injured after a hijacked lorry ploughed through pedestrians in a city shopping area before crashing into a department store, Ihrman told the court.
Police have since Friday conducted more than 600 interviews and continue their raids in the greater Stockholm area as part of the investigation.

Ihrman requested that the hearing at the Stockholm District Court continue behind closed doors in order to present evidence assembled in the case against Akilov. Eriksson and his client did not contest the request.

Judge Malou Lindblom then ordered members of the public and reporters to leave the court room.

When Akilov entered the court room, he had covered his head with a green pullover, which the judge ordered him to remove, according to reporters present.

Swedish courts do not allow cameras or television images inside a court room.

It emerged Monday that Kilov had requested to replace Eriksson with a "Sunni Muslim" attorney. The court denied the request.

Security was tight at the court. Visitors were forced to pass through security screens similar to those at airport checkpoints, while the street outside the building was also blocked off and stationed with armed police.

On Monday, national police chief Dan Eliasson and other police officials declined to confirm or comment on whether Kilov had admitted to the attack, whether he had ties with extremist Islamist groups, or had volunteered any motive since his arrest late Friday.

Police have since Friday conducted more than 600 interviews and continue their raids in the greater Stockholm area as part of the investigation.
