Defence minister resigns


Published

Defence minister Sten Tolfgors resigned his Cabinet position yesterday. The move was described as something that had long been in the offing but local newspapers are reporting that it was most likely over revelations about a deal to build a secret arms factory in Saudi Arabia.

Prime Minister Frederik Reinfeldt has placed Catharina Elmsäter-Svärd, currently the infrastructure minister, in charge of the defence portfolio.
