"Runar Søgaard appealed against imprisonment."
"Now he demands also the return of their weapons that were seized in connection with the judgment."
"I think it is a very important decision," says his attorney Leif Gustafson."
"Runar Søgaard, 51, was sentenced to 20 months in prison for aggravated accounting fraud and tax evasion in February."
"He has since appealed the judgment and argues, inter alia, that he not had such a role in the company that he shall be responsible for the financial statements."
"Runar and his attorney Leif Gustafson has previously criticised the trial and believe that it has been kept in ”an unacceptable manner”."
" It has been a trial without a shootout, and without defense, said Runar Søgaard, the day after the imprisonment."
"In connection with the verdict decided, the police also to seize the two arms, ammunition and licence with reference to the judgment and the earlier judgment of two counts of false accounting in 2014."
"”the Police overall assessment, that you are not suitable to possession of the firearm and, in the event the judgment against you becomes final, it is likely that your permission to possess the firearm will be revoked. The police authority therefore considers that, based on the prevailing circumstances there is some evidence against a disposal,” writes the agency."
"Now appeals His decision."
"”Have nothing to be ashamed of”"
"His lawyer, Leif Gustafson argues that the crimes Søgaard has been convicted of can not justify the seizure."
" I think it is a very remarkable decision. For the first evaluates the acute, necessary, before one knows about the remarks that are against His will stand fast, " he says. "
"Leif Gustafson also believes that there is no criticism against Runar when it comes to the particular handling of weapons."
"– There is something very special about you to seize the weapons because of these suspicions, and there will be something even more special when you do it before the thing is done."
"– He's doing well good. He knows that he has nothing to be ashamed of, but he thinks that this is a totally unwarranted action in the middle of it all. "
