1 Min Read

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Sweden's Debt Office said on Wednesday it would report to prosecutors 11 employees it suspects of bribery or embezzlement over accepting gifts including tablet computers from an external supplier of IT education to the authority.

"What has happened is serious and risks affecting confidence in us as an authority," Debt Office Director General Hans Lindblad said in a statement.

The Debt Office said there were reasons to believe there are grounds for suspecting the actions constituted bribery or embezzlement.
