Persson’s Accounts in Order

Former Swedish Prime Minister Göran Person has played by the books and can keep his controversial and substantial financial benefits paid to ex ministers. 

The independent pay-board that is in charge of ministerial salaries looked into the case and found no irregularities. 

Reports that Persson had been claiming the full amount of financial benefits despite his high income from consultant work in private business sparked outrage from critics who have petitioned for a change in legislation.
