Threat to Swedish free sheet

FREE daily newspaper publisher Metro International SA might lose its distribution in Stockholm with threats by the city transport authority to cancel its contract to hand out newspapers at train and bus stations.

“The idea is to carry out a procurement which is open for options to let in other players,” said the transport authority’s boss, Ingemar Ziegler.

Metro Sweden CEO Andreas Ohlson claimed the contract would run until the end of 2010 and if not cancelled would automatically renew for five years. The current agreement was signed in 1995.
