Tommy Sharif has accepted the fine of 20,000 kroner he was issued after harassing Stormberg owner Steinar J. Olsen. Thus, there will be no trial next week.

The criminal case was due to appear before Nedre Romerike District Court on Friday 14 August.

“A day away from work costs a lot of money. Taking up time on lawyers and the judiciary is also a bit overpriced. This time I’m choosing to listen to the advice I have received. I’ll pay the fine and put time and effort into work and the flow of satisfied customers,” Sharif writes on Facebook.

According to the indictment, Sharif published posts on Facebook that he would meet Olsen against his will. In one case, he is said to have traveled to Olsen’s workplace in Kristiansand and stayed there for some time.

In February, Sharif was sentenced to pay Olsen 130,000 kroner in compensation. The reason was that Sharif posted on Facebook where he claimed, among other things, that the hiking gear manufacturer Stormberg uses the Nav system and that the owner has money in China.

Sharif has previously been sentenced to nine months in prison for tax evasion and accounting irregularities.
