A large number of customers got totally excessive bills for the viewing of commercials in cinemas. Why has the fraud squad just raised charges against the company Danish Advertising Film A/S and against the three persons.
the Fraud amounts to 91 million. It is alleged in the indictment, as Ritzau has been provided from the fraud squad, whose real name is the public Prosecutor for Special Economic and International Crime.
the Company's chairman of the board Erik Kongsvik-Ibsen declares itself surprised at the turn the case has taken.
- It comes to us, that the Danish Advertising Films are to be charged. Danish Advertising Film has even handed over the case as the wronged, he says.
the criminal complaint was filed in January 2018 and the framework that is now the company as a boomerang.
The alleged crime must have happened through four and a half years. Data on the number of biografgæster, as from the soft seats looked at advertising, was deliberately manipulated and turned up too high, it is argued.
Thus, clients were overfaktureret and got to pay more than they should, it appears.
the criminal Proceedings shall be decided by the Court of Frederiksberg. Here, judges have decided to retire the navneforbud for the three accused persons.
Two of them are accused of fraud for 91 million dollars, while the amount of the sidstes he is 75 million dollars.
All the refuse of not guilty. If convicted, liable to imprisonment, while the company is a financial penalty.
the Danish Advertising Film A/S, which is owned by Nordisk Film, report having paid a total of 95 million dollars to the customers as compensation. And overall, there is talk about a loss of tens of millions of dollars, says the chairman of the board Erik Kongsvik-Ibsen, who wonder about the prospect of yet another sharp smack in the right. In particular, because the company initially even took action, went to the police and tried to clean it up.
A case like the present would, in the Danish Advertising Films opinion, cannot be solved without the company itself had acted properly and investigated the case, he said in an email to Ritzau.
the indictment states that the company as so-called legal person is 'responsible for' what was going on, and thus have committed fraud.
the court Hearings in the case will be settled in april next year.
