Grant-seeking companies are drowning the courts in work

Published 18 April 2022 at 16.43

Despite the decline, the inflow of cases throughout the judiciary is the third highest in the 2000s. This is shown by the Swedish National Courts Administration target statistics for the first quarter of 2022.

At the Administrative Court in Stockholm, 10,000 cases were filed by the grant authority Tillväxtverket, which dealt with appealed corona grants to companies in 2021.

During the first quarter of 2022, the number of new targets has decreased sharply and one explanation is that there are no longer as many grant targets from the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth.

– We see an expected reduction in the number of targets coming from the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth and the balance for these targets is now declining at a steady pace. In the past year, these cases have been dealt with in a special project with partly extra staff, says Eva-Lotta Hedin, who is a lawyer at the Administrative Court in Stockholm, in a press release.

What the grant circus in the judiciary cost the taxpayers is not clear.
