Speaker of parliament denies harassment claims

1:54 min

Speaker of parliament Urban Ahlin has denied accusations of sexual harassment and bullying after 30 people gave anonymous accounts in newspaper Dagens Nyheter.

The accusations were published Thursday and are based on interviews with Social Democrats and politically independent civil servants.

Speaking to Swedish Radio, Ahlin said he does not agree that there is a unanimous view of him as a bad leader and that he has ordered an inquiry into his leadership and the work environment in Parliament.
