Anna Ardin no longer wants the services of Claes Borgström

Claes Borgström has sent his final bill to the courts for representing Anna Ardin. The bill totalled over USD 17,000 for what he estimated was 48 hours work. Ardin objected to Borgström wasting time with the media but Borgström insists it was necessary.

The document indicates Anna Ardin was interrogated on seven separate occasions by the Swedish police.
