The IB-affair[edit]

Peter Bratt revealed Informationsbyrån together with Jan Guillou in the magazine Folket i Bild/Kulturfront. This was to be known at the IB affair. He also published his own book on IB from Gidlunds förlag (publisheres) in 1973, IB och hotet mot vår säkerhet (IB and the threat against our security).

The Geijer affair[edit]

In November 1977 Peter Bratt published an article in Dagens Nyheter on a memo in which the Police Commissioner had stated that the Minister for Justice Lennart Geijer was a security risk.[1]
This led to the Geijer affair, a scandal involving prostitution[2].
