Police are considering arresting a Romanian man who was in possession of a potentially false corona test that showed a negative result.

False documents that show that one has tested negative for coronavirus, with a doctor’s statement, can be bought on the internet for NOK 185 and in any language according to the police, Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) reports. 

On Tuesday, a Romanian man was arrested in Norway after showing what the police suspect was a forged COVID-19 test.

“This is a disturbing trend in Europe. We are seriously looking at whether this has now come to Norway,” police attorney Andreas Meeg-Bentzen in the Oslo police district told NRK.

If the document found on the man is forged, he will be charged with forgery. 

Since the authorities introduced a requirement for a negative corona test for inbound trips to Norway from November 9, 500 people have been expelled from the border on the grounds of the infection control rules.
