IKEA France bosses 'hit with spying charges'

Three executives at IKEA France, including the CEO, were charged this week in connection with allegations the company illegally used police files to spy on staff and customers, a judicial source told AFP.

IKEA France's CEO Stefan Vanoverbeke, CFO Dariusz Rychert and the company's former CEO, Jean-Louis Baillot, were charged with "complicity to collect personal data" and "complicity to violate professional secrecy", the source said.

All three were formally held for questioning by police in Versailles, near Paris, on Monday.

The charges follow police seizures at IKEA France's headquarters in the Paris suburbs earlier this month.

 A spokeswoman for IKEA France, the Swedish furniture giant's local subsidiary, said the firm was aware of the latest developments. Full story...
