di.se quotes the news agency DIREKT who says that NEVS today completed a property transaction with Hemfosa and bought back Saab’s factory.

Last year, Saab Automobile AB sold 50.1% of the company that owns the 483000 m² property for 255 million SEK in addition to one year free rent (valued at 70 million SEK).

Robert Collin Calls Out Reinfeldt

June 24, 2011 in Editorial

Friend to SaabsUnited Robert Colin of Aftonbladet has written a very to the point and worthwhile summary of how the politicians at the top of the Swedish government reacted to the news of Saab’s troubles yesterday. Usually I leave the Swedish media or government rants to Tim as I’m American, but I can plainly see all the way from over here just how poorly they’ve handled this situation. I love Sweden– the history, the design heritage, the culture, and most of all the people. But right now, I’m not so in love with the ministers that run the place. For all those of you who live in Sweden, please bookmark this article so the next time that election cycles come around, you can remember how Prime Minister Reinfeldt feels about Saab and vote accordingly to elect politicians who value the Swedish auto industry.

Full English translation after the break.
