Säpo investigates Reinfeldt threat

"We are aware of the threat, it is also been brought to our attention," said Thomas Engberg at the Security Service (Säkerhetspolisen - Säpo) to the Expressen daily.

The threat was made on Sunday evening to SOS Alarm, Sweden's emergency response service.

The threat was made in Östersund in central Sweden and was immediately passed onto the police, the newspaper reported. The matter was forwarded to the security service.

"Our responsibility is the security of the central government and that means that we always assess threat and take appropriate protective measures based on the situation at hand," said Säpo press secretary Sirpa Franzén to news agency TT.

Franzén was however unable to give any details on the threat nor how they were working to deal with it.

"We are looking at the information which has come in and take measure and work with what there is, but we can't say anything about how we work," she said.

Fredrik Reinfeldt's press spokesperson, Robert Alenius, referred all inquiries to the the Security Service.

Håkan Juholt's press spokesperson, Ann Wolgers, also declined to comment on the report.

"We never comment on security issues," she told Expressen.

Is there a Terrorist group that targets boring people??? If so SAPO better post a 24/7 guard on these two.

A terrorist targetting Fredrik Reinfeldt and Håkan Juholt.

What would be the point?

Both Fredrik Reinfeldt and Håkan Juholt are capable of doing more damage to Sweden, than any terrorist.

The title of the story is somewhat missleading. At first I thought Säpo was investigating Reinfeldt because HE was the threat.

beware of the insurgent terrorist: laura ka baal !!!

BTW-Muhammad is a Dog : )

...Oops sorry to all the non-terrorists, but I had a momentary lapse in-tolerance due to laura Ka Boom, I mean 'ka baal', well, the fact of the matter is, well...

I Don't Like muslims!

...and now back to the story comments,

These two dudes are a complete waste of taxpayer money, so the only threat here is these two losers sucking up misappropriated funds. Gee, I wish I could have the swedes pay my rent of 60.000 SEK a month while my house was being 'fixed-up'.
