The police have still not fully investigated Prime Minister Erna Solberg’s possible breach of the infection control rules in Geilo during the winter holidays.

“There are still some tasks (to carry out) before a prosecution decision can be made. Beyond that, I do not want to comment on the case,” prosecutor Per Morten Sending in the Southeast Police District told news bureau NTB on Tuesday morning.

Sending did not want to say whether the decision would be made this week.

Solberg and her family had a gathering of more than ten people two days in a row during the winter holidays to celebrate the Prime Minister’s 60th birthday. 

First, the family visited a restaurant (without Solberg). The next day, everyone gathered in an apartment in Geilo.

The police decided to start an investigation after tips about the case via Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK).

A priority

On Friday, March 26, the Southeast Police District stated that no decision would be made in the case until after Easter.

“The police need more time to review all aspects of the case,” Sending said at the time.

He said that the most important interrogations in the case had been carried out but that there were still some tasks left before a prosecution decision could be made. He assured the public that the case was a high priority.
