STOCKHOLM, Sweden — An employee of Sweden’s national medicine authority was asked to step down from her job interviewing drug addicts after her bosses discovered she had previously worked in hardcore films in the United States.

The woman, who was not identified by name but said she had performed in several adult movies during the 1990s and appeared in Penthouse, was paid a hefty sum of $53,000 to vacate her post.

“They got off cheap,” she said. “I have never been treated so badly in my life.”

A co-worker discovered still photos of the woman on the Internet several months ago, and a scandal erupted after reviews of her work showed serious flaws, according to a spokesman for the Swedish Medical Products Agency.

Authorities are investigating the individual who hired the woman to determine whether the hiring broke with department policies and whether the woman herself actually had the proper credentials for her position.

The woman denies any wrongdoing.

“I got no explanation about what I had done wrong,” she complained. “But later I spoke with a woman at the agency, and she said they had seen pictures of me on the Internet.

“I was in those films seven years ago. I now disassociate myself from them. Am I not allowed to move on?”
