    Summary

    A Committee on Planning and Community Development was in charge of supervising a company. A committee official informed the company that a newspaper had requested documents about the company. The official also inquired whether the company would like to receive the documents that the newspaper had requested and subsequently sent the documents to the company. According to the Parliamentary Ombudsman, the official’s actions can not be perceived in any other way than as a warning to the company that a review of its business activities had been initiated. Therefore, the Parliamentary Ombudsman finds that the official’s actions were inappropriate in accordance of the interests supporting the Swedish Principle of Public Access. According to the Parliamentary Ombudsman, these actions can also be subject to scrutiny in compliance to the statutory requirement on impartiality.

    The Committee on Planning and Community Development is responsible for ensuring that its staff members are aware of the regulations governing their actions. The Parliamentary Ombudsmen directs criticism towards the committee for the incident.
