FOI, the Swedish Defence Research Agency – subordinated to the Ministry of Defence of “Neutral” Sweden, is now reported of helping in complete secrecy – totally behind the Swedish public and Parliament (according to declarations of Vänster Party‘s chairman Jonas Sjöstedt) – the building of a missile factory on behalf of the notorious dictatorship in Saudi Arabia. The breaking news emerges just few days after FOA ungrounded accused WikiLeaks founder and editor Julian Assange of illegal actions against Sweden. Professors blogg asks, FOA, Who is in fact violating the Swedish laws?
On the other hand, as Dagens Nyheter informs 7 March, the said fake company “Swedish Defence Research Agency” given the same address and telephone number as the Swedish Defence Research Agency”.
It is highest unlikely that the Intelligence services at disposal of Defence would not have alerted Tolgfors of the upcoming disclosure. In this scenario, it is likely that Tolgfors’ subordinate, FOI’s Vice Research Director Mike Winnerstig (below) had the assignment of sending a chauvinistic smoke courting to the public, by preposterous accusing Assange and WikiLeaks of non-existent criminal behaviours, such as blackmailing the Nation of Sweden.
This measure was one among the variety of articles and aired programs aiming to discredit WikiLeaks and presenting Sweden under an attack from “Sweden’s Number One Enemy” Julian Assange, as he has previously been named in Sweden’s mainstream media both by the pro-government press and the “opposition” press.
During a recent radio debate in which Professors blogg was invited to meet Expressen‘s editor-in-chief’s opinions (Radio1, aired 3 March 2012) on WikiLeaks, Mr Thomas Mattsson dismissed any explanation pointing to a coordinated media campaign as nonsense. During the acid polemic which have ensued between WikiLeals and Expressen, the tabloid has been signalled as a megaphone of the Moderate Party – or going “hand-in-hand” – as Julian Assange recently indicated.
The Swedish mainstream media – State or corporate owned – will in these days give the impression that they, or the political establishment, is “reacting” to the disclosures. For instance, it is announced that the Green Party have reported Minister Tolgfors to the Parliament’s Constitutional Committee. It will not happen a thing. Professors blogg can absolutely promise: Nothing it will happen at the end, unfortunately.
Another way from the Swedish political establishment of faking a reaction is calling for a modification of the current legislation on arms/weaponry export. With this they let people “understand” that in the agreements with Saudi Arabia dictatorship were nothing illegal, that the law permitted such things even if “one could think it would be inappropriate”. Such is the posture for example of Folkpartiet (a party of the government coalition), in declarations made today by chairman Jan Björklund.
According to TV News (19.00) The chairman of such Constitutional Committee has already declared that the above it will not be considered in any case before year 2013. This because their agenda is fully booked for this year!
The King of Sweden recently bestowed Saudi Arabian dictator with a Swedish medal
In October 2011, the Swedish monarch bestowed his Saudi Arabia counterpart with a Swedish medal, the Wolf Bronze Award. This caused just a minor “storm bubble” in Sweden, almost unnoticed in the country but known abroad thanks to a reportage by The Localof 4 October 2011.
This morning, the Radio Program Ekot – one of Sweden’s eldest – informed that the Swedish agency has been helping to plan such factory since 2007. That was a time in which the Swedish government, politicians, and the official press (read Swedish mainstream media) arduously agitated the “Neutrality” of Sweden.
In spite of the documentation gathered by Ekot, officials at the FOI still denies. And PM Reinfeldt appeals to a “secrecy matter”, according to SvD.
Jan-Olof Lind, FOI’s General Director: “No. And I do not wish to comment on discussions that may or may not have occurred between Sweden and Saudi Arabia. These discussions are classified.” 
Anna Troberg, Sweden’s Pirate Party chairman comments “Sweden’s secret arms assistance is not an accident, it is a symptom” (“Sveriges hemliga vapenhjälp är ingen slump, den är ett symptom”).
