Svenska Dagbladet reported on Wednesday that a 32 year old woman has been jailed for four months for trespassing on Saab's premises in Linköping. She is suspected of sabotage.

It appears she broke in to the premises in order to take notes on different JAS fighter planes. Allegedly she was interested in whether they were to be exported.

"The woman reported herself to the security guards immediately after the incident", said SvD.

A man has also been charged for helping the woman. The court ordered both people to pay Saab 1,500 crowns in compensation.
