STOCKHOLM (Reuters) -- A Swedish prosecutor wants to question former Saab Automobile Chairman Victor Muller as part of an inquiry into suspected tax offenses at the automaker, a Swedish newspaper reported.
Earlier this week Jan-Ake Jonsson, Saab's former CEO, ex-Chief Financial Officer Karl-Gustav Lindstroem and former general counsel Kristina Geers were arrested and questioned by Swedish prosecutors in an accounting-fraud probe.
Muller also is wanted for questioning, Svenska Dagbladet reported on Wednesday. "Victor Muller is going to be called into the Financial Crimes Unit," Chief Prosecutor Olof Sahlgren told the paper.
Muller said he has not been contacted by the Swedish authorities. He told the Saab fans Web site SaabsUnited today he felt "absolutely horrible" about the arrest of the three executives. "They are among the finest people I know and personify integrity, " he said.
