Government Criticised for Slow Response to Tsunami

Published torsdag 1 december 2005 kl 11.40

An official commission has sharply criticized the Swedish government and several individual ministers for failing to respond effectively to the South Asian tsunami that killed at least 179,000 people, including more than 500 Swedes.

In its final report, the Swedish Disaster Commission says the Foreign Ministry took too long before reacting to the December 26 catastrophe, and failed to provide clear information about the situation to victims and the Swedish public.

Prime Minister Göran Persson, Foreign Minister Laila Freivalds, and Health Minister Ylva Johansson were all criticized.
