    A Swedish man with alleged neo-Nazi ties has been charged with stealing the ‘Arbeit Macht Frei’ sign from Auschwitz.

    Anders Hogstrom was extradited to Poland in April. He has been charged alongside two Poles, who have been identified as Andrzej S. and Marcin A.

    Prosecutors in Krakow said all three men had already confessed and agreed to serve sentences of around two-and-a-half years. If the court accepts their plea bargins, they could be sentenced immediately without trial.

    Hogstrom is expected to serve in a Swedish jail if convicted.

    Three other Poles are already serving sentences between two and a half years and six months for the theft.

    A second Swedish man is currently being investigated by police over suspicions that he masterminded the theft.

    The infamous bronze sign was recovered two days after it was stolen in December 2009, cut into three pieces.
