Former Yara boss Thorleif Enger will receive NOK 9.2 million in compensation from the state in the so-called Yara case.
The Borgarting Court of Appeal ruled in the compensation case on Friday.
Enger sued the state for compensation for what he believed was unfair prosecution against him in the so-called Yara case.
The state was acquitted in the district court, but in the Court of Appeal’s judgment, Enger was awarded compensation for a financial loss of NOK 9.2 million.
In December 2016, three of four former Yara directors – including Enger – were acquitted of corruption in the Borgarting Court of Appeal. Since then, he has fought for compensation and redress.
Enger originally demanded NOK 16 million in compensation from the state.
