Call to Reconvene Tsunami Commission

Johan Hirschfeldt, the head of the Stockholm Appeals Court, has written to the government calling for the official commission on the Asian tsunami disaster to reconvene.

The letter follows Hirschfedlt’s analysis of computer logs concerning the activities of former State Secretary Lars Danielsson the day after the disaster. According to media reports, the back-up logs do not corroborate Danielsson’s versions of events.

Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt is calling in the leaders of Sweden’s political parties to discuss the issue.
