On November 6, the Swedish police have taken three individuals into custody, suspected of espionage or corporate espionage. The three individuals are employed by or have been employed by Ericsson.
The three individuals are suspected to have handed over top secret information to a foreign power.
"With regard to the investigation, we cannot disclose what kind of information that has been handed over," says Henry Sténson, Senior Vice President, Communications, at Ericsson. "Our opinion today is that the damages are limited. Thanks to the timely handling, the deliveries were stopped. Besides, the three individuals did not hold any key positions."
