Gross corruption is punishable by up to ten years in prison. Spesialenheten let in the Oslo district court a claim for eight years in prison for gross corruption.Fagdommernes decision
the Procedures of sentencing will only happen after the jury's verdict is adopted by the court. Fagdommerne also have the opportunity to set the jury verdict aside. Fagdommerne have now pulled themselves back to discuss just this question.
Lagdommerne can put often arise from the trial damning verdict to the page where they find that it is not led sufficient evidence of the defendant's guilt.
Fagdommerne can also put a frifinnende ruling to the page if they unanimously find it undoubtedly that the defendant is guilty, but the terms here are more stringent than for a conclusive ruling.
If the ruling is overruled, the case will be processed again in the composite court with three fagdommere and four meddommere.Six day treatment
the Jury has the last six days sitting in the lack of counsel alone where they have discussed the issue. Then have each committee member cast a "yes" or "no"-vote on whether Jensen is guilty. The public will not know stemmetallet in the jury or what evidence the jury has laid emphasis on in the matter.
It is now nearly five years since Jensen 24. January 2014 was arrested in the basement under the politihuset in Oslo and indicted by Spesialenheten for gross corruption. He has all the way refused straffskyld, and stood from January 2017 indicted in a four-month-long case in Oslo district court. In september of that year came the devastating verdict against him on 21 years in prison.
Lawsuits against Jensen has been among the most resource-intensive, comprehensive, and most talked about in the shop. The court of appeal has heard at admissible as evidence in the 77 days before the jury retired Wednesday 24. January. Then had lagdommer Kristel Heyerdahl kept his rettsbelæring, where she emphasized that the jury had to be convinced Eirik Jensen's fault for answering yes to the question about straffskyld.
She also asked the jury to carefully and conscientiously look at the objective evidence in the case. Absolutely central for narkotikatiltalen against Jensen is the many messages he has sent to Cappelen about the "setting", "control here" and "sunshine".Entrusted to the police officer
Eirik Jensen was one of Norway's most trusted policemen. In addition to being a foregangsfigur within informantfeltet and one who had close contacts in the criminal environment, he was also the leader of the infamous gjengprosjektet X-ray and for a special group of Special operations in Oslo.
Nesodden-born Jensen was on to trap the infamous Rasool-family, kept peace in the ranks among Norway's criminal MC-gangs, was central in clearing of a number of spectacular krimsaker and led a top-secret national project that involved informantbruk.Fringe
Jensen was also a controversial and unconventional police officer, both of method and appearance. He had long hair in a ponytail and was always dressed in civilian, mostly leather jacket. Several colleagues saw him as arrogant, introvert and never afraid to take a conflict. Some of the properties that got friends and colleagues to look at Jensen as a difficult man to relate to, is also the one of many drawn up his forces as a police officer.
His non-disclosure of the informants and the lack of documentation in the police systems has also been a part of the case against him.
We don't know exactly what evidence the jury believes is important or what they have emphasized in their discussions.
the Prosecution believed that Jensen, for significant remuneration has contributed to the Gjermud cappelen in his (51) innførselsvirksomhet from 2004 to 2014 by to warn of various conditions that could be of importance for hasjbaronens smuggling. The prosecution believed that Jensen and could reduce the risk of that business was revealed, and Cappelen was in the police spotlight, about narkotikalaster was stopped and specifically, what the police were doing.Informant
Jensen and his defenders have always argued that Bærums-man Cappelen was ex-politimannens informant and that the extensive contact between them was in connection with the informantvirksomheten. Taken together, it is found over 1500 communication events between Jensen and Cappelen over several years, and all this contact has been very important in the case.
Other very key evidence in the case have been the values and gifts Spesialenheten have been convinced that Jensen got from Gjermund Cappelen. Hasjbaronen has explained that he gave Eirik Jensen 500 nok per kilo introduced to marijuana, a total of 13,9 tons. This would mean that he has given Jensen seven million. It is not found evidence for such a sum of money, but a number of smaller items have been crucial in the case against him.
the Renovation of the bathroom on the Jensen farm in 2005-2006 has been among the most talked about bevistemaene in court. Both Cappelen and the prosecution says that hasjbaronen paid over nok 200 000 for the renovation. Jensen denies this, and claims that he never paid a now deceased Danish craftsman - hired via Cappelen - because he do not got a hold of him. This was among the most central points in the tingrettsdommen.Receive clock
In addition, there is talk about several alleged kontantoverleveringer at times for hasjinnførsler. The jury also had to decide whether the 30 000 in cash that was found in the garage wall, Jensen was the repayment of a loan to cappelen in his monument mountain peak night life or if it was the payment for hasjhjelp.
Jensen also received a Tag Heuer watch of the Cappelen to a value of 17 000, which he claims he delivered back with once he understood what it was. The same applies to a klokkereparasjon of 800 million in Amsterdam, as Cappelen paid for. Jensen claims he thought the repair went on the complaint.
the Jury has also considered whether this corruption is rough for an overall assessment. The jury has looked at Jensen's position as a trusted police officer, if he has received a significant economic benefit and korrupsjonens skadepotensial.
the Limit for what is a significant financial benefit is approximately 100 000, but the size may be smaller because of the position, repeated korrupsjonshandlinger and risk of damage. Even if the jury has come to an amount of 100 000, still the corruption be rough.
We know now is not the concrete holdepunktene in the jury for why they have arrived at their conclusion. Now will fagdommerne in the case, along with four persons from the jury, begin the work with straffutmåling. Here there will be own procedures from the defenders and the prosecution. In addition, Gjermund cappelen in his lawyer Benedict de Vibe prosedere for that Cappelen will have less punishment than 15 years in prison, of which he was convicted in the district court. Cappelen got a total of 30 per cent strafferabatt of a judgment on the 21 years of the Oslo city court, 20 per cent for confession and 10 per cent to be talked into Jensen.
the Judges will then proceed with a final adjudication that determines straffutmålingen. There will be a description of the chain of events. In addition, it should be specified what evidence conviction based on, it is required that rettsanvendelsen sufficiently specified and that the court manager is reviewing the evidence.
