Early Tsunami Warning Sent to Government
The Swedish Parliament’s Committee on the Constitution is expected to present its evaluation on Thursday.
This is after conducting a series of hearings with government representatives to get a clearer picture of why thousands of Swedes were left without help during the tsunami disaster.
New information shows that some 40 people including two ministers were already informed at 05.42 on the morning of the catastrophe by a mobile telephone service run by Swedish news agency TT. The flash included information that many tourists were missing. The Prime Minister’s press office were among the notified, but according to the investigation, no one passed the information on to the Prime Minister that morning.
