Former Progress Party (FRP) leader Siv Jensen is still being investigated by the Oslo police in connection with a breach of the corona rules during the May 17 celebrations.
“The Siv Jensen case is still under investigation,” communications adviser Steinar Wulfsberg-Gamre in the Oslo Police District wrote in a text message to news bureau NTB.
The Oslo Police District opened the case on May 19 due to a possible breach of corona regulations after it became known that former FRP leader Siv Jensen and her family broke the corona rules in connection with the May 17 celebration at Jensen’s mother’s home.
Sorry for the violation
In addition to Jensen, there were twelve other people present at the celebration, according to TV 2. At that time, it was forbidden to have more than ten people gather in private homes in Oslo.
“We had more than ten people, of which five were vaccinated. We had not realized that the new recommendations from the FHI to not include protected persons in the total number did not apply to Oslo,” Jensen told the channel when the case became publicly known.
“I strongly regret this. If we are fined for this violation, we will, of course, pay for it,” she said.
Six weeks have passed
In April, Prime Minister Erna Solberg was fined NOK 20,000 for breaking the corona rules when her family gathered to celebrate her birthday in Geilo during the winter holidays. The Southeast Police District spent three weeks on the investigation.
NTB has asked Siv Jensen what she thinks about the fact that the Oslo Police’s investigation has now been going on for six weeks.
“The police are investigating the case, and I have no comment on that,” Jensen wrote in a text message via her press contact.
