Swedish FM Wallstrom, Israel’s pariah, reportedly linked to corruption scandal

Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom, who has become public enemy No. 1 in Israel over her remarks criticizing the security forces for carrying out “extrajudicial killings” against Palestinian terrorists, appears to be entangled in a brewing corruption scandal back home.

According to the Swedish daily Aftonbladet, the country’s largest trade union, Kommunal, is alleged to have rented out luxury apartments in Stockholm at steep discounts to corporate executives and senior officials from the ruling Social Democratic party.

The newspaper reported on Friday that Kommunal leased these apartments at substantially low prices compared to their value on the real estate market.

One of those senior political figures reported to have received a discount is Wallstrom.

The apartments were reported to have been overseen by a maintenance firm that made sure to take them off of the market so that they could be reserved especially for senior government figures and trade union executives.

The TT news agency reported on Friday that one of the tenants who took up residence in these apartments was Wallstrom.
