As I wrote for almost a year ago, then Swedish Prime Minister Göran Persson was suspected for failing to compose a working environment plan for the building site of his house. Such a failure is prosecutable as crime according to Swedish law.

Svenska Dagbladet writes that the prosecutor’s office has issued a fine to the ex Prime Minister. He now has 10 days to decide whether he is going to accept the fine. He will face prosecution if he wants to contest the ticket.

Mr. Persson’s party lost the election last autumn, after which he also resigned as the leader of now oppositional social democrats. The crime suspicion was not an issue during the campaign.
