The Innlandet police district is opening a case against national team manager Ståle Solbakken for alleged breach of the quarantine obligation.

Police attorney Tom Gjestvang in the Inland police district confirmed the news to news bureau NTB.

“We are investigating whether there is a basis for proceeding with the case and possibly fining him. If you read both VG and Dagbladet, what happened looks reasonably clear, and he admits it, so we have to decide whether it will be necessary to interrogate him,” Gjestvang said.

Breaching the quarantine obligation in Norway can be punished with fines of up to NOK 20,000 or imprisonment.

Gjestvang believes the police will make a decision in the case in one to two days.

He further confirmed that the police are opening a case against Solbakken after reading media reports that he broke the quarantine period when he went to Hamar on Sunday night.
