Former Saab Chairman Victor Muller “will be called in to answer questions related to a Swedish inquiry into alleged tax offenses at the bankrupt carmaker,” Sweden’s  Economic Crime Authority told Reuters.

When news spread last week that Muller will be called on the carpet, Victor took to his favorite mouthpiece, Saabsunited, and said it is not true:

“Nobody from the Swedish Authorities has ever tried to get in touch with me and I am sure they have my number so if they had wanted to, they would have certainly been able to do so.”

Katinka Wall, a spokeswoman at the Swedish Economic Crime Authority, told Reuters that Muller would be summoned as part of the wider investigation and that he is not being served as a suspect.

    Shame GM doesn’t bring him on as CEO. He could finish the axe job that Rick Wagoner was even too incompetent to complete.

      Victor Muller is probably not very happy about GM preventing him from selling SAAB cheap to the Chinese, so I suppose it’s unlikely that he’d ever want to work at GM. If he did end up there, though, we all know what he would do – sell GM cheap to the Chinese. It’s the only trick he knows.

      Though to be fair, GM will end up as Chinese Government Motors anyway, there’s no need to involve Muller to make that happen.

    “Katinka Wall, a spokeswoman at the Swedish Economic Crime Authority, told Reuters that Muller would be summoned as part of the wider investigation and that he is not being served as a suspect.”

    Yah, shoor. And if Muller believes that, his middle names are Julian Assange.

      maybe she omitted the ‘yet’ on the end of her statement.

      In actuality, no one is currently being treated as a suspect. They are still information gathering.

    The SAAB story is going on longer, but the Porsche-Volkswagen story was juicier, with a more convoluted plot, more interesting characters, and lots more intrigue. More chapters are coming in the former, but who knew a zombie story could be so dull?
