In a direct response to the Swedish government's decision to expell the terrorists captured after the occupation of the West German embassy(see The Embassy), the newly formed "Kommando Siegfried Hausner" devised a plan to kidnap the Swedish Minister of the Interior, Anna-Greta Leijon. Mrs. Leijon was to be kept in a 1 x 1 x 0,75 m box in basement of this building (a.k.a. "the People's Prison") while the leader, Norman Kröcher, negotiated with the authorities.
However, the Swedish secret police, SÄPO, had them under close survelliance and before the plan could be put into action the entire group was arrested on March 31, 1977 in an operation code worded Ebba Grön. Sweden's leading punk rock band formed the same year, named themselves after the operation.
