Lindstedt has been indicted for autonomy in negotiating with foreign powers for having arranged a meeting in Stockholm with Chinese businessmen and the imprisoned book publisher's daughter Angela Minhai in an attempt to get Gui Minhai released.

Margot Wallström and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs have denied knowledge of the meeting plans, something that the Left Party questions.

- This whole act of the ambassador is very strange, that her bosses would not know that she requested this meeting, the party's foreign policy spokesman Håkan Svenneling told TV4.
