Swedish Radio News will conduct a new internal investigation into one of its reporters who had a relationship with a man who she had been assigned to investigate journalistically and who the security service Säpo classified as a threat to national security.
The reporter, who left Swedish Radio last year, said she started the relationship after her investigative reports had finished last summer.
But a story published on Tuesday by newspaper Dagens Nyheter found car parking fines issued to the man in Stockholm that placed him outside the reporter's home as early as March - at a time when she was still working on the story.
Sweden's Security Police Säpo considers the man a threat to national security and want him to be deported. While awaiting deportation, he must report to the police in his home town of Gävle several times a week.
Swedish Radio's head of news, Klas Wolf-Watz said on Tuesday afternoon that he would be undertaking a fresh look following the newspaper's revelations and go through the matter again with the companies various specialists.
Wolf-Watz said the results of that investigation could bring about new decisions when it comes to how the broadcaster handles the reporters' stories, which remain published on online.
