A Hungarian man charged with false allegations of deprivation of liberty has now been extradited to Norway after being imprisoned in France since July.
A couple in their 40s were arrested in June last year, suspected of detention of the Hungarian man. The police, however, quickly suspected that the Hungarian himself had fabricated evidence to incur criminal liability.
Therefore, the Hungarian 38-year-old was charged with grossly incorrect charges and was arrested in France in July. There the man has been in custody since, and was released on Friday last week to Norway.
– The man has been interviewing at Molde police station this weekend and is being presented to Romsdal District Court on Monday, with a request for remand prison for four weeks. He is charged with grossly incorrect accusation, but the accused does not acknowledge guilty duty after the charge, says police inspector Knut Meek Corneliussen in Møre og Romsdal police district.
The police also state that there is a risk of evidence and danger of evasion in the event of the release of the accused man. The couple, who are both foreign citizens resident in Molde, are still charged with the case, but are not detained.
