§3   The legal situation – short introduction by legal consultant Ulf

     Ulf Öberg, consultant from Öberg and Associés, gave the group a brief
     presentation over his judgement as regards the legal situation of the
     Baltic Cable and SwePol Link.

     The group discussed the topic and it was clear that it is not easy to make
     a definite judgement of the legal situation for the cables.

§4   The legal situation – comments and discussion
     Vattenfall and Svenska Kraftnät presented the outcome of separate legal
     studies over the legal situation that pointed out different judgements
     than Ulf Öbergs conclusions. (The studies will be distributed together
     with the minutes.)

     Margareta Bergström promoted the group to try to find “the spirit
     behind the legislation” instead of trying to interpret the wordings in
