A Swedish court has told Saab's administration that there are 'insufficient grounds' to remove him
16 December 2011

A Swedish court has told the administrator in charge of Saab's affairs that he cannot quit the role – even though both he and the struggling car firm want him to step down.

As Autocar reported yesterday, administrator Guy Lofalk asked the court in Vanersborg to authorise his decision to quit just days after Saab requested that he was relieved of his duties.

Last week Lofalk applied to the same court to end Saab's reorganisation process, which is currently protecting the company from its creditors while it tries to sort out its finances.

Today the court threw out the request to have Lofalk replaced by lawyer Lars-Henrik Andersson because there are 'insufficient grounds to immediately dismiss Lofalk'.

On Monday Vanersborg court will make a decision over whether to remove Saab's reorganisation request.

Earlier this week Saab’s parent company Swedish Automobile (Swan), confirmed that it had received a much-needed cash injection from one of the Chinese investors that is interested in taking a stake in the firm.
