The former Labor leader of the Labor Party announced his verdict in Oslo District Court on Friday.
– It is better to close the case after three years, Liadel told NRK before the verdict was read.
The 105-page verdict states that Liadal was guilty of gross fraud against Starring.
In addition to the seven-month prison sentence, she will have to repay 99,000 kroner to Sporting. He has previously repaid 17,000. She will also have to pay about 30,000 kroner as legal costs.
This is a good time to consider whether to accept or appeal the Liald judgment.
Leah: – I was disappointed
– I was disappointed. Defender Eric Lea tells the NRK on his behalf and on her behalf.
He believes that part of the evidence before the court is completely false.
– I thought she would not be fully released, but I hoped that the amount would be very small. Leah adds that we ended up being very negligent.
The guard says he wants less imprisonment and that he was punished for certain positions, not intentionally, but for acting with extreme negligence.
– We do not listen to the court and the court judges. We can only adhere to it, he says.
61 Invalid Travel Invoices
When Liadel was a Member of Parliament, he was accused of gross fraud after submitting a false travel list. During the period from 2016 to 2018, he submitted a total of 61 invalid travel invoices.
The court believes there is no doubt that Liadel abused and deceived his parliamentary seat.
– The court administrator Steiner Bake says trust has been seriously abused.
On five personal trips, the court did not prove that Liadel had deliberately deceived Storting.
Liadel pleaded guilty to gross negligence fraud, but did not commit gross fraud.
Criticizes Sorting’s control system
The court found that Liadel had proven that he had built other cities than he claimed. Sometimes she never travels at all.
In many cases, the court cited Liadel’s Facebook or Instagram profile, indicating that he was not where fares were indicated.
She was also reimbursed for using her own car, whether by train or plane. On one occasion, he presented a travel invoice for campaigning while he was in the cabin.
Liadell explained that he does not think much about travel, and that the court considers that it is not possible because travel invoices are issued when travel is completed.
Court Administrator Steinar Backe also criticizes Sporting’s regulatory system for travel costs. He believes they do not have the functions to detect fraud and that the system is based entirely on trust.
Travel invoices included in the indictment include travel that government officials believe Liald did not attend, travel that was not linked to Sorting, and business travel that did not provide a refund.
Liadal Liner holds team positions at Utsira, where he has been seeking a refund from Storting regarding travel and accommodation. One of the three judges said the loan request had not been proven, but the majority concluded that Liadel had deliberately paid her ineligible bills.
700 fare paid
Sporting complained to the police after the litigation Aftenpostense Revelations in April 2019. Avisa revealed that in 2017 and 2018, Liadel paid fares of half a million kroner for starters. He has been to other cities many times than he has said.
Before the chargesheet was filed in March last year, police examined nearly 700 travel invoices. He has been charged with gross fraud under Section 372 of the Penal Code, which carries a fine of up to six years.
The 49-year-old was accused of writing, among other things, a high-mileage travel invoice between Hujsund and Oslo. Several such tours between her hometown and the capital are said to have given her more than 14,000 kroner.
