No preliminary investigation into Juholt

News agency TT reports that the decision to halt the preliminary fraud investigation of Social Democrat party leader Håkan Juholt will not be re-examined.

A Chief Prosecutor decided last Friday not to go ahead with a fraud investigation into whether Håkan Juholt broke the law when he received too much compensation from the government for his apartment. Two private individuals appealed that decision, but the Prosecutor says they had no right to do so because they were not directly involved in the case.

He also says there will be no preliminary investigation into Håkan Juholt's study trip to Belarus or the inaccuracies in Juholt's rental car receipts.
