Sweden's Supreme Court on Thursday ruled against deporting a young Soviet hijacker to face trial in the Soviet Union. The court said that Mikhail Mokretsov--who forced a Soviet civilian airliner on a domestic flight from Riga to Murmansk to fly to Sweden on July 5--will face trial in the Scandinavian country rather than the Soviet Union. Although two other young Soviet hijackers were deported last month, the court said that expulsion of Mokretsov, 18, would be contrary to Swedish law.
