Ex-chair Victor Muller to be summoned over Saab tax offenses

Article by Anita Panait, on May 29, 2013

Sweden’s Economic Crime Authority will invite former Saab chairman Victor Muller as part of an investigation into alleged tax-related offenses at the carmaker. Muller, however, is not suspected of wrongdoing. He is now chief executive of Spyker, a sports carmaker that acquired Saab from General Motors in 2010.

In a statement, Spyker said that the Gothenburg district attorney has confirmed that Muller is not a suspect, and he may be invited for interview possibly in October. Swedish prosecutors are probing into claims that Saab executives blocked proper tax checks from 2010 to 2011, when the company was experiencing several struggles that included heavy financial fixes that eventually forced the carmaker to collapse.

Katinka Wall, a spokeswoman for the Swedish Economic Crime Authority, confirmed that the former Saab chairman will be summoned as part of a wider probe and that he is not being served as a suspect.

Local daily Svenska Dagbladet first reported last week that tax authorities are intending to invite Muller for questioning. Last week, Swedish prosecutors questioned Saab former chief executive Jan-Ake Jonsson, former Chief Financial Officer Karl-Gustav Lindstroem and former general counsel Kristina Geers.
