Parliamentarian J�rgen Hellman from the social democrat party based in Lilla Edet near Gothenburg intends to report the Swedish industry minister, Maud Olofsson, to the Swedish constitutional committee (KU) relating to the way Saab has been treated.

Finance Minister, Anders Borg will also be reported for taking a very weak stance on the Saab issue, according to reports from radio Sweden.
"I want to get the answers as to why the government opposes solutions to Saab issue, "said Jorgen Hellman.


The minister feels that Saab has done a lot to try to turn the company around but had got limited support from the government. The government is believed to be in support for the collapse of Saab and instead supporting the company to stand, there is preparation for what to do with all those who will loose their jobs if the company finally falls.

On related issue, Saab on Tuesday afternoon is reported to have said that it is on tract to pay its workers who could not receive the salaried in the past week.

According to Swedish television channel, TV 4 News in a matter of days, the money will be in to pay the workers.
"With 99 percent certainty before the end of the week, but no earlier than Thursday, "said TV 4, according to a news source.

The sources of money are reported to be Chinese Youngman, one of the Chinese companies that will become a part owner of Saab, if and when Chinese authorities give the go-ahead.
