Swedbank refused to close the account – must pay again

Published September 2, 2022 at 5:45 p.m

It was in October 2021 that the Stockholm District Court ruled in a judgment that Swedbank violated the Payment Services Act when the bank suddenly closed the bank account for Widar Nord a few days after finding out that he ran Fria Tider.

The district court sentenced the bank to close the account again, determined that the termination was illegal and found that the bank should pay both its own and Widar Nord’s legal costs, which totaled a little over SEK 800,000.

However, the bank refused to turn on the service for foreign payments, and Widar Nord therefore sued the bank again in the spring of 2022, after unsuccessfully trying to get the bank to voluntarily turn on the payments.

However, after receiving a lawsuit from the district court, Swedbank stopped the payments. Widar Nord has therefore withdrawn the case and the district court now orders the bank to pay an additional SEK 43,000 in court costs.
