Two Czech women showed fake corona tests on two occasions. This resulted in 30 days in prison.

The women showed the false tests when they arrived in Svinesund the day before Norway de facto closed its borders on January 29. 

They also showed the tests a few days later when the police checked the apartment in Oslo they were staying.

The duo was in Norway because they wanted to work. They have previously tested for coronavirus prior to entry in Norway, but they thought they did not have time to wait for a regular test before the border closed on January 29. 

Therefore, they ordered fake tests from a Swedish company.

The sentence was 30 days in prison, and a deduction has been made for 29 days in custody. The court ruled that the sentence would have been 45 days in prison had the women not confessed.
