State Liquor Chain CEO’s Contract Reviewed
The board of Sweden’s liquor retail monopoly, Systembolaget, is to review the pension agreement for the chain’s CEO, Anitra Steen.
The move follows a complaint from the opposition Conservative Moderate party that the contract violates state guidelines.
Chairman of the Board Olof Johansson, a former leader of the opposition Center Party, said Tuesday Anitra Steen’s original agreement was from before the guidelines were adopted, and that she voluntarily agreed to a renegotiation with a 30 percent cut in salary.
Anitra Steen is married to Swedish Prime Minister Göran Persson, who has refused to comment on the issue.
