Katarina Ekspong, the editor-in-chief of the Swedish daily newspaper Nerikes Allehanda, published in Örebro, stepped down the end of August/beginning of September over a plagiarism row.
At first it seemed that she had only plagiarized one piece by a free-lance journalist published in January of this year about Örebro. Upon closer inspection of her work, additional word-for-word plagiarisms were discovered.
She first just stepped down as publisher, but has since resigned from all positions. She declines all requests for comment or interviews.
