Telia execs cleared of bribery charges

Anders Igel - cleared of bribery charges

The chief executive of Swedish-Finnish telecom operator TeliaSonera, Anders Igel, was cleared Tuesday of bribery charges for inviting customers to the hit ABBA musical Mamma Mia in 2005.

The former head of the group’s Swedish operations, Marie Ehrling, was also acquitted by the Stockholm district court.

The pair were accused of corruption for having invited customers to attend a dinner and the musical, as well as a product demonstration, in April 2005.

One of those who received an invitation was a national police chief who reported the company to police.

The event was later cancelled after the prosecutor launched a bribery investigation.

In Sweden, which prides itself on a longstanding tradition of equality and openness, the slightest privilege or favour is often exposed by the media or colleagues.
