Sweden drops probe of spy agency 007 gala

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Nov. 3 (UPI) -- The Swedish government said it would not press an investigation into a lavish James Bond-themed party thrown by the nation's security service.

The Swedish Security Service, known as Sapo, came under scrutiny for allegedly spending 5.3 million kronor ($802,500) for the 2011 company bash. The government's Competition Authority said the revelations arose after the reporting deadline.

The issue wasn't so much that Sapo threw itself such a party but that it allegedly did not put the event out for bid.

The Local.se said about 1,000 guests from intelligence service and elsewhere were feted with a dinner, entertainment and a casino party that would have made the dapper 007 feel right at home.
