Top-level Green party recruit reassigned, thought to be security risk

Published fredag 31 oktober 2014 kl 19.50

A high level Green party official working close to Sweden's new education minister, Gustav Fridolin, was forced out after just two days on the job, because the Swedish Intelligence Service deemed the person as a security risk.

The person was found to have debts totaling over SEK 188,000 with the government agency handling debt collection (Kronofogden), according to the Expressen newspaper online.

The Green Party's deputy head of press Adam Bergsveen told Expressen, "We stopped the recruitment, because the security check wasn't finished. Unfortunately, we haven't had enough time after the election. Some of the recruitments have gone faster than the process."

The man has instead been offered another job with the party, reports news agency TT. Earlier this week, it also came to light that another of the Green party's top officials in the Government Offices (regeringskansliet) had been convicted of smuggling drugs as recently as 2012.
