Project Simoom: Sweden building arms factory in Saudi Arabia -- Svergies Radio Reports

The confidential papers received by Svergies Radio revealed that the said project was started in 2007 and contains plans to build 35 buildings.

Svergies Radio further claimed that the Swedish government had knowledge of the project, code named as ‘Simoom’. FOI head Jan-Olof Linde, however, denied the report, and stated repeatedly that such a plan does not exist.

“Today we have no ongoing projects with that country, so I have no comments because we don’t have any project,” Linde said to Svergies Radio.

When asked deeper questions, Linde remained halt.

“The answer is no. Really! Don’t you hear what I’m saying,” he told representative of Svergies Radio.

Jan Erik Lövgren of the Swedish Agency for Non-Proliferation and Export Controls (ISP), stated however that the FOI still has plans involving Saudi Arabia.

“I understand that there is some form of dialogue with the Saudis,” he said.

The radio station claimed that the secret government documents stated that the project “pushes the boundaries of what is possible for a Swedish agency," according to SR.

Saudi Arabia is regarded as one of the world's strictest dictatorships by a number of human rights organizations. Nevertheless, Sweden still has a military cooperation with the country.
