The family of Maren Ueland seeks redress after all

The family of Maren Ueland will seek compensation after the murder. The Norwegian student was murdered by IS sympathisers in Morocco last December.

Support Lawyer of the bereft, Ragnar Falck Paulsen, tells Stavanger Aftenblad that the family previously did not want to claim compensation in the case.

“The family has stated that they rather want the money to go to the poor in Morocco than to get recompensated. I have explained to them that this is probably not a viable solution. When I spoke to Maren’s mother on Thursday night, she informed me that the family will demand compensation after all,” Falck Paulsen explains.

Death penalty for the murderers

A total of 24 men are prosecuted after Maren Ueland from Bryne and her Danish fellow student, Louisa Vesterager Jespersen, were murdered near Imlil in the Atlas mountains last December.

Three men are charged with committing the double murder. The Public Prosecutor demands that these must be sentenced to death. This, at the moment, entails life imprisonment in practical terms.
