"the Pensioners national organization (PRO) reported on the incorrect numbers for several years which led to that the organisation received large government subsidies. The organization had counted the number of membership rather than the number of physical members. The same member can be in different parts of the association. In march last year, the national Board of health PRO would pay back the 1.6 million crowns."
"But the PRO has had continuing problems with counting the number of members."
"– When we took out the numbers in preparation for applying for government grants for 2019, we discovered that there was a snippet of code in our system that did not work. It means that we have reported for many members of the application applying in 2018, " says Patrik Fornedal at PRO to the Swedish newspaper svenska Dagbladet."
"the health Board has opened a new case against medlemsrapporteringen. The authority has not made a decision yet on how much money that PRO will have to pay back."
"the Organization has now come to the conclusion that at the end of last year had about 330 000 members."
