    Today the prosecutors Per Lindqvist and Mats Ljungqvist at the National Security Unit of the Swedish Prosecution Authority, have indicted two men for gross espionage on behalf of the Russian Federation. One of the men is also indicted for gross unauthorised handling of secret information.

    A major part of the information in the indictment is confidential. The prosecutors will therefore have limited possibilities to comment on the investigation. “It has been a complex investigation concerning a crime that is very difficult to investigate and the suspicion concerns very serious criminality directed against Sweden's intelligence and security system. The offense is serious as it concerns circumstances of major importance. The information that has been obtained, transmitted and divulged could, by the fact that if it comes into the hands of a foreign power, result in detriment to Sweden’s security”, says chief public prosecutor Per Lindqvist. The indicted men have been detained since September and November 2021 respectively. Contact Public prosecutor, Mats Ljungqvist, is available to the media today between 10.30 am and 4 pm, by phone +46 (0)10-562 54 29. The prosecutors will not be available to the media on any other time.       Press Service, +46 10 562 50 20
