  • A former reporter at Swedish Radio News Ekot, who reported on islamists deemed as national security threats, started a relationship with one of them, reports news site Doku.

  • The coverage dates back to 2019 and concerns people who faced deportation.

  • "As soon as I found out that there was a situation where Ekot's integrity could be compromised, we took measures and the reporter left Ekot soon after that", says Klas Wolf-Watz, head of Swedish Radio News.
