Comments By Olof Stenhammar, Chairman, OM Group On Recent Press Reports Concerning Sweden's Bid For The 2004 Olympics

Date 10/10/2000

'Some recent press reports have been critical about my role in trying to secure the 2004 Olympic Games for Sweden. Earlier this year, the Swedish Prosecutor closed his investigation into the company set up to make the bid for the Games. He had found no evidence of any wrongdoing on my part or that of the company.

'I am not aware of any other investigation and there is no reason for one. While I am happy for my role with the Olympic bid to be considered by any official enquiry, I deplore the unfounded attacks on me which have appeared in the media and shall, if necessary, take steps to protect my reputation.'
