Fines in Systembolaget Bribery Trial

Published torsdag 23 februari 2006 kl 17.36

A court in southern Sweden ordered fines for 15 former liquor store managers convicted of accepting bribes from distributors in a scandal involving the country’s state-owned alcohol monopoly.

Prosecutors said the wine distributor Vin-Trägårdh paid the store managers over US$16, 000 to favour their products.

At the time, the managers were working at the state-run Systembolaget, which has a monopoly on alcohol retail outlets in Sweden and strict rules governing alcohol sales.

This was the second of six trials stemming from an investigation into US$152, 000 in bribes allegedly paid by alcohol distributors to Systembolaget employees.  A total of 92 people have been implicated in the investigation.
