Systembolaget will not fire all of its bribed managers, according to press reports. Agence France Presse said yesterday that the state-owned alcohol retail monopoly would not dismiss or report staff it knows have taken bribes from drink suppliers in the past.

The company made the announcement as the initial proceedings of its investigation came to a close, AFP stated.

The scandal came to light in January last year, when Systembolaget suspended six of its store managers and considered de-listing products from three of its suppliers on suspicion of bribery and corruption.

Bjorn Rydberg, the Systembolaget press spokesman, said at the time that the company suspected that the store managers had accepted bribes from three suppliers to give prominence to their products within the stores.
