No corruption investigation

Published måndag 1 november 2010 kl 15.17
Sofia Arkelsten

The Swedish anti-corruption unit has decided not to launch a preliminary investigation into links between the new conservative Moderate Party Secretary Sofia Akelsten and business interests.

Arkelsten was previously the party’s spokesperson on environmental issues. After she recently moved up to the party secretary position, it was revealed that she was a member of the board of a company listed on the Stockholm exchange, and had made a number of trips abroad where the expenses were picked up by private interests, like the Shell Oil Company.

She immediately resigned the board post.

Chief Prosecutor Gunnar Stetler announced Monday afternoon that there was no reason to believe any crimes had been committed, and Arkelsten’s trips are not considered to be bribes.
