Marie sues Expressen
STOCKHOLM - Marie Fredriksson is not satisfied with the apology the tabloid Expressen published last Monday. Therefore, she will now start a legal process against Expressen.
"She is very angry about the treatment she's got from Expressen," her laywer Leif Silbersky says.
To win this case Silbersky will summon doctors who can testify that the information published by Expressen January 31st, is totally faulty. "Expressen won't get away with this simple apology. We want this tried on two levels now." Silbersky says to Aftonbladet. One thing is filing a complaint with the press ombudsman, for ethical reasons. Part two is a formal lawsuit in about a week. As reported earlier, they will demand 500,000 Swedish kronor in damages, which will go to the Cancer Fund.
"If Expressen is convicted, we will demand that the sentence is published by Expressen," Silbersky states.
