Lööf and Tolgfors face parliamentary criticism
Centre Party leader Annie Lööf and former defence Minister Sten Tolgfors could face rapped knuckles from the parliament's Constitutional Affairs Committee Tuesday, as it presents its investigation into reports of alleged misdemeanours.
Lööf was questioned by the committee following media reports that her government department did not pass on receipts from a Christmas party to a newspaper that requested them, they then gave the receipts to Swedish Radio instead. Swedish transparency laws say the government has to hand over requested information such as this to the media without delay.
Former defence minister Sten Tolgfors was questioned by the committee over his dealings with Saudi weapon component factory.
Both are expected to face criticism from the committee, according to media reports today, but the committee has no legal powers of reprimand.
