Wednesday, 26 October 2011
There is a growing embarrassment griping the Swedish military and it has to do flights from Sweden to Sicily during the Libyan campaign.

It happens that the Swedish military participating with the Gripen mission to Libya also saw that military in their travels between the air base in Sicily and the Swedish Air Force squadron dealt with the transportation of some good amount of sprits wine, consumer electronics and toys and the likes.

It is not precisely however, clear if these good were transported from Sweden to Italy or vice versa.
14 employees at the F21 base in LuleŚ are those that have come under the suspicion according to the Swedish daily Svenska Dagbladet. This approach has meant that there were saving made by shipping the goods since they are not passed through customs.

But if the quantity of alcohol brought not was not much there should be no big deal as within the EU there is free management of goods.

Swedish military police has been notified of the suspected smuggling of goods to the Prosecutor's Office in LuleŚ.
