Trond Giske has earlier today posted the letter on his own Facebook page.
The letter states that, among other things:
"In your letter you highlight your view that "none of the cases involves some form of harassment." At the same time take "responsibility where I have been conscious enough at my role and position of power in some social and private contexts". We take your point of view to the intelligence".
"the Party has in its treatment of cases not given any grading of severity, and has not seen it as its task to assess whether there is a breach of the likestillingslovens provisions on sexual harassment. The party has therefore not drawn such a conclusion".
One year after the so-called Giske case, with warnings about inappropriate behaviour towards several women, raging in the Ap, is now a kind of formal an end.
I'm relieved that the party was so clearly says that the cases against me has not been assessed against the likestillingslovens provisions on sex harassment, " says Trond Giske to Dagbladet in the evening, on the way into to the general assembly in Malvik Ap in the county.
