Wanted ex-politician returns to Sweden

A former conservative Moderate county politician suspected of embezzlement has landed at Arlanda airport in Sweden, reports news agency TT.

She is suspected of defrauding Värmland County of SEK 3 million.

The politician’s family members, who are suspected of aiding her, returned to Sweden on Thursday. They were all arrested in Pattaya, Thailand two weeks ago, after already having been placed under arrest in absentia in Sweden.

The politician will now be taken to Karlstad. She will appear in court for a new arraignment hearing on Saturday.
