The Swedish television journalist Cats Falk and a friend were murdered in 1984 on the orders of the East German security service Stasi, the newspaper BERLINER ZEITUNG reports today.
According to the newspaper, Cats Falk, who worked for Rapport [Swedish television news programme], was murdered because she had found out too much about the smuggling of high-technology equipment, weapons and ammunition to the Communist regime in East Germany through her investigations.
According to the newspaper the women were poisoned and put in a car which was rolled over the quayside into the Hammarby Canal in Stockholm.
