The 'Goldman case' that refuses to die

More than a year after Denmark’s ruling coalition split apart amid a clash over Goldman Sachs’s purchase of state assets, the case refuses to die.

Bloomberg News reports that the issue at stake is whether the government was transparent in its handling of the deal. A recent statement signed by the speaker of parliament criticized the process.

With an election set to be called any time in the next three months, even parties that support Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt are refusing to accept her explanations.

It’s 'disrupting the government’s political machine' and 'overshadowing other initiatives', said Rune Stubager, a political science professor at Aarhus University.
