Nicolai H. Løvenskiold will resign as head of the group that owns the private college Westerdals Oslo ACT while Economic Crime Division handles the allegations against the school.
Lovenskiold confirmed Thursday that he will withdraw from his position until the Norwegian authorities have dealt with the case, according to the newspaper Dagens Næringsliv.
– As the owner of Westerdals, Anthon B. Nilsen Education AS has to follow up the case, and in order to avoid doubt that all judgments and decisions are made solely in the school’s interest, I do not want to be part of the process. Because of this and for the good of the company, I have asked the board to be allowed to resign, Løvenskiold says in a statement.
