Swedish government slammed over TeliaSonera sale

Sweden's government is facing accusations from Riksrevisionen, the country's national audit office, that it has mishandled the planned sale of a controlling stake in TeliaSonera, the Financial Times reports.

The office is set to issue a report that is expected to criticize the government for an alleged lack of expert consultation ahead of the planned sale of its 37 percent stake, the newspaper added.

The Nordic operator is currently the subject of a hostile takeover bid by France Telecom.
