Eirik Jensen, was on Monday convicted for gross corruption, but acquitted of rough narkotikaforbrytelse of the jury in the Borgarting court of appeal. Fagdommerne set aside the decision of the jury, and Jensen-the case must thus be treated all over again in the court of appeal if the former politimannens appeal cannot reach.
Jensen's defender, John Christian Fire, has appealed fagdommernes decision to the Supreme court.Jensen: "The worst outcome
Petter Gottschalk, korrupsjonsekspert and professor at the BI Norwegian business school, thinks Jensen should have been completely acquitted.
He also believes it should be directed strong criticism against the management of oslopolitiet in connection with the Jensen case.
He emphasises that the way in which Jensen has worked with informants is not unique to police work against gjengmiljøet and narkotikamiljøet.
- This way of working is not special for Jensen. This was the way THAT, Special operations, worked on. It is a mistake to seize hold of a person. There are several I know of that operated this way. It is a mistake to remove Jensen as a rotten apple. Kickback is an important part of police work against informants in the criminal environment. Confidentiality is also important, " says Gottschalk.The unknown jurydramaet: - Eirik Jensen one vote from being field for drug offences Sacrificed by the police
in Particular Gottschalk critical to how Hans Sverre Sjøvold, chief of police in Oslo, has considered the matter.
He sentenced Jensen partially in advance. When the Jensen case appeared desired Sjøvold that the case should be fully investigated, but he would not anyway because it would then prove that this is a culture in the police, " he says.
Gottschalks clear opinion is that Jensen has been dolket in the back of their colleagues in the oslopolitiet.
It's completely terrible that the police have sacrificed a man when they know that they have shared responsibility for a culture where this is okay, " he says.Why was Jensen-the decision of the jury set aside the Newspaper Plus
I know me not again in these claims. I think this falls on its own urimelighet, write the chief of police Hans Sverre Sjøvold in an e-mail to Dagbladet.
He writes further that he did not want to give further comments as the case stands now.the Police's job becomes more difficult
Gottschalk has previously lectured at the University of New Haven and had former special agents of the FBI as colleagues.
- This is nothing if you compare with how the FBI works. I had told them what Jensen had done, they had joints. Even if we don't want american conditions is it okay to put it in perspective, " he says.CHAOTIC: 28.

Korrupsjonseksperten also believe that the police work against gjengkriminalitet and drugs has become more difficult after the Jensen case.
Gottschalk has written several books in collaboration with, among others, Anders on, among other matters, in spesialenheten and criminal organisations and has a variety of sources in the police.the Police must be fully investigated Comment
Police have already lost many informants due to this matter. I know from the many in the oslo police that many informants have withdrawn. The police are depending on the informants in the heavy gjengmiljøene and MC environments, " he says.
- it Becomes more difficult for the police to combat gjengkriminalitet now?
Police are also being less creative in their work with informants because they see what happened with Jensen, says Gottschalk.changed her mind about the investigation
24. august last year, reported Norwegian broadcasting corporation NRK that the ministry of Justice and public security had changed his mind about the investigation by the police. The message is that the investigation will not be initiated until there is a final and enforceable judgment in the Eric-Jensen-case.That the Jensen not investigated their informant, is completely common practice in the police Comment
- the Police should be scrutinised. I fear now that it will have to wait until the last round, " says Gottschalk.
An investigation will include Jensen and others who worked in the SO, Special operations.
the Investigation and inquiry also depends on the fresh products. Also from a rettssikkerhetsperspektiv should not Jensen have been convicted of a hasjbarons statements without that it has been conducted any investigation of the place he worked, he says.
Dagbladet has been in contact with the ministry of Justice and public security.
"the Ministry does not want to comment on the case until there is a final and enforceable judgment," writes communications consultant Andreas Skjøld-Lórange in an e-mail.- A shadow over the police and the rule of law
- the Case is still a shadow over the police in Norway. The whole matter is deplorable for the police and the rule of law, " says Stig O. Johannessen professor and politiforsker by OsloMet. He has written several books about police culture and leadership.Jensen-friend: - A dødsstøt
He is also among those who believe that the police should be scrutinised.
Regardless of the result in the Jensen case is this a major scandal that has significance for confidence in the police. It should be created a commission with the mandate to investigate what it is with the police cultures and leadership that has facilitated the Jensen's activity and the extent of similar practices, he says.
- It is unlikely that Jensen has run a corrupt practice for years without anyone internally in the police have known about it or closed their eyes to what was going on, " he says.
He does not think corruption is very widespread in the police, but believe that there are gråsoner:
We know that there is a distinction between legal rules and operational politipraksis. Jensen-case shows that this distinction may in the end corrupt practices. How large this problem has been, and is, we do not know. Therefore, we need an independent investigation of this both historically and today, a kind of the Lund commission for police gråsoner. It is not comforting that the attorney general has not followed this up, " he says.the Picture that divulged cappelen in his contact with Jensen Dagbladet Plus
