The bribery scandal consuming Systembolaget, Sweden's state alcohol monopoly, has widened further with the suspension of a board member and two head office employees.

Systembolaget said yesterday that the suspensions had been made because of "prohibited contacts" with suppliers.

The scandal has already cost scores of jobs at store manager level, where employees have been accused of taking bribes in return for favourable listings of brands in the stores.

Now a TV programme on the Swedish channel TV4, aired yesterday, has claimed that three head office executives accepted international trips paid for by suppliers. They were not named.

Acording to report the three have been suspended from Systembolaget but a spokesman Bjoern Rydberg said the company wasn't entirely clear on what they had done wrong.
