I do not know the judgment, what was it?

And after he was informed that he was acquitted, It is several seconds where the lanky Dutchman stands to ear without saying anything. Then he exclaims:

– I am extremely happy! I had confidence in the Swedish legal system all the time and thought that they are doing a good job.

“This confirms that we were right all the time, we were very conservative and had only one interest – to save Saab.

Victor Muller was CEO and Chairman of Saab Automobile in bankruptcy in December 2011. He also had a starring role in the Dutch Spyker, which owned Saab for the last time.

For over 10 years, Goran Aničić has been passionately focused on Saab automobiles and everything related to them. His initial encounter with Saab cars took place back in 2003 when the first Saab 9-3 and sedan version were introduced. At that moment, he was captivated by the car's Scandinavian design logic and top-notch engineering, and everything that followed stemmed from that first encounter. Later on, through his work at the editorial team of the Serbian automotive magazines "Autostart" and later "AutoBild," he had the opportunity to engage more closely with Saab vehicles. In 2008, he tested the latest Saab cars of that time, such as the Saab 9-3 TTiD Aero and Saab 9-3 Turbo X. In 2010, as the sole blogger from the region, he participated in the Saab 9-5ng presentation in Trollhättan, Sweden. Alongside journalists from around the world, he got a firsthand experience of the pinnacle of technological offerings from Saab at that time. Currently, Goran owns two Saabs: a 2008 Saab 9-3 Vector Sportcombi with a manual transmission, and a Saab 9-3 Aero Griffin Sport Sedan from the last generation, which rolled off the production line in Trollhättan in December 2011.

  • I truly believe Victor. At the end of the day Victor is a car guy who wanted to save the iconic SAAB brand. Instead, the globalist Swedish government lead by (then) Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation – Maud Olofsson – wanted to end the Swedish automotive industry because it didn’t fit “their” world view and Sweden’s role in that hierarchy.
    I bet proud Swedes really do want their county back and building SAAB’s in Tollhatten would be part of returning Sweden to the Swedish people.
