Polish prosecutors have filed charges against a Swede with neo-Nazi ties and two Poles acting for profit, and said all three had confessed to the brazen theft of the notorious "Arbeit Macht Frei" sign from the gates of the Auschwitz death camp last year.

A second Swede, whose name was not released, is suspected of masterminding the robbery.

"We have evidence indicating the possibility that a Swedish citizen might have instigated another Swedish citizen to commit a crime connected with the theft of the 'Arbeit Macht Frei' sign," prosecutor Robert Parys said.
