In reference to media information today
Swedish Radio can confirm that a person with the same name as the suspect for the Paris attack on 6 June was a trainee at Swedish Radios Gothenburg office for six weeks in 2010. The person worked primarily with local reporting.
Swedish Radio takes on a large number of supervised trainees every year and as such this person would have gone through normal procedures for such a position. This would e.g. include the school confirming that the person is a student.
As far as we know the person has done four pieces of local reporting.
After completing the trainee period in 2010 the person has not been employed by Swedish Radio.
