The Swedish Chief Prosecutor Christer van der Kwast has decided to close the preliminary investigation into Saab concerning alleged illegal methods in connection with the sale of Gripen.
“The decision is fully in line with what we have claimed all along”, says Cecilia Schön Jansson, Communications Director at Saab. “No illegal methods have been forthcoming from Saab, and this is strengthened by the fact that the Chief Prosecutor now decided to close the investigation.”
Saab says that the laws and regulations in connection with the sale of Gripen have been followed by the company. Business ethics is a matter of great relevance to Saab. For example Saab's employees have been trained in Saabs Code of Conduct.
“We now can put this behind us, and we want to convey this message to all our customers, employees and shareholders, says Cecilia Schön Jansson.
