Christmas party written up as seminar
The newspaper Aftonbladet reports that the Christmas party at the Ministry for Enterprise cost almost US$ 100,000, but was written up as a seminar.
According to the newspaper the actual seminar involved amounted to only around one-tenth of the total expenses.
The revelation comes after Minister for Enterprise Annie Lööf called in the heads of the public agencies under her responsibility to discuss a series of reported spending irregularities.
The Ministry disputes the newspaper's figures and says everything was done in accordance with the tax laws.
