Minister Fined for Non-Payment of TV Licence

Swedish Migration Minister Tobias Billstsröm has been fined around 128 dollars for failing to pay the mandatory television viewers licence fee.

The fine was for not paying over a two year period, but Billström has in fact admitted that he has never paid the fee, which funds public broadcasting in this country.

Two of his colleagues in the center-right cabinet that took over in October were forced to resign in scandals that included non-payment of the TV licence.
