Abba-Frida claims back temple-money
Anni-Frid Reuss, more known as Frida from Abba, is demanding back 6,9 US dollars that she has invested in a qigong-temple in southern Sweden.
She claims that it was only a loan, but Marcus Bongart, who runs the centre, says it was not a loan but an investment. He tells the news agency TT Spektra that she "invested in an idea about Chinese medicine" and that she has changed her mind along the way.
The qigong-temple Yangtorp outside Hörby opened in 2000. It includes a hotel, a restaurant and space for exercising. Last years turn-over amounted to 4,9 million US dollars. The temple now risks bankruptcy.
The temple offers courses in mediatation, treatments in Chinese medicine, acupuncture and qigong, which is a system of physical and mental exercises that originate from China.
