"No jail time" for hiding Saudi email

"It's extremely important"
3:56 min

An email linked to the government's secret plans to build a Saudi weapon's factory was removed from a journal that should be open to the public. The email would have shown that the government knew about plans to help Saudi Arabia build a weapons facility. The removal of the email could go against Sweden's Principle of Public Acces, protected in the constitution. Radio Sweden talked to Per Hultengård, a legal expert and the CEO of the Swedish Newspaper's Publishers Association. He says that hiding documents is a very serious matter - but that no one is likely to go to jail for it.
