A man in his 50s has been sentenced to 90 days in prison for threatening Minister of Climate and Environmental Protection, Sveinung Rotevatn, Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) writes.

The verdict was issued in Sogn og Fjordane district court.

The man must also pay legal costs of NOK 5,000. According to the verdict, the man allegedly sent a threatening message to the minister in May. 

The fact that the man was previously not punished and that he confessed to the police during questioning affected the sentence.

  1. Although President Biden’s “national security” appointments are the same villains who promoted/perpetrated our Libya and Syria holocausts, his a appointment of former Secretary of State John Kerry as climate czar/defender was/is wonderful.

    I hope Sveinung, Erna, Ine, and Norwegians will join everyone in cutting back fossil fuels and adopting alternative energy as soon as possible.

    And whenever possible the old fossil fuel energy corporations and their personnel should be helped to join the new renewable energy effort. There is a lot energy expertise there which can be converted too.

    The threatener should instead try thinking of ways he can help … others.
