An Expressen reporter has been suspended after it emerged that he had accessed the Social Democrats' internal network, Sapnet.

Niklas Svensson, a political reporter for the Swedish tabloid, first got hold of the log-in information in March and since then had logged in three times, most recently in August.

"We take this very seriously," Expressen's editor Otto Sjöberg said in a press release.

Svensson had not informed his superiors that he had the log-in information, Sjöberg said.

According to Sjöberg, Expressen received the information via other media on Tuesday evening. On Wednesday morning Svensson confirmed that the information was true.
