The trial against the Labor Party’s (AP) parliamentary representative Hege Haukeland Liadal, who is accused of gross fraud, take place in Oslo District Court in November.

The case will last from November 2 to December 15. A total of 32 court days have been set aside for the case.

At the end of March, it became known that Hege Haukeland Liadal has been charged with submitting false travel invoices to the Norwegian parliament (Storting) from the autumn of 2016 to the autumn of 2018. This is an amount of just over NOK 115,000.

Newspaper Aftenposten revealed that Liadal requested reimbursement for private travel expenses and stated over the top distances in her driving allowance claims.

Intentional gross fraud carries a penalty of six years’ imprisonment. Liadal, who represents the Rogaland Labor Party in the Storting, has previously pleaded guilty to gross negligent fraud, but not gross intentional fraud.
