STOCKHOLM (AP) – Swedish prosecutors have charged three people after claims that bribes were paid in the construction of a new 50,000-seat stadium for the national football team.
A city official in Solna, a Stockholm suburb, is accused of accepting bribes from a company involved in the construction project.
Anti-corruption prosecutors on Wednesday said another Solna city official and a representative of the company were also charged in the case. They didn't identify the suspects.
The stadium is being built in Solna to replace Rasunda, the current home of the Swedish national team. The new stadium is scheduled to be completed in 2012.
