Wallström reported over missing documents

The Minister for Foreign Affairs, Margot Wallström (S) has been reported to the Riksdag’s Committee on the Constitution (Konstitutionsutskottet, or KU) after documents concerning Sweden’s campaign to get a seat in the UN Security Council went missing. The announcement was made by the opposition Moderate spokesman for Foreign Affairs, Jonas Jacobsson Gjörtler, reports Dagens Nyheter. “This has to be properly reviewed. Nothing can be ruled out: from someone involved having wanted to keep an evaluation in the dark to a bad or sloppy handling,” he told the newspaper. The Ministry for Foreign Affairs has previously claimed that it never received the 44-page evaluation, but only 13 pages consisting of conclusions. However, on Thursday the government announced that it will report material that is linked to the previously missing document shortly.
