                              Pressemelding  Scandinavian Star

15. 01.2017

Norsk politi ville efterforske mulig ”forsikringssvindel” på Scandinavian Star men undlod, at afhøre forsikringsagenten og forsikringsselskaberne. I Oslo politis oplæg fra 2013 og 2014, ville man igangsætte en dyb efterforskning af mordbranden på Scandinavian Star.

Hovedtemaet var forsikringssvindelen & brandstiftelsen, altså kaskopolicen på skibet & observationer omkring branden.

Men hvad Oslo politi undlod, var, at efterforske forsikringsforholdet men alene, at forholde sig til tidligere forklaringer fra bl.a. danske myndigheder. Oslo politi har, i en mail af d. 31. august 2016 fra politiadvokat Hanne Fauske bekræftet, at manden der formidlede kaskoforsikringen, ikke er blevet afhørt. 

Det samme gælder personer omkring forsikringsmanden, der i dag har søgt skjul i udlandet. Den mand & hans nærmeste pårørende, kender sandheden.

En anden person som heller ikke er blevet afhørt, er en central, nu tidligere medarbejder i Søfartsstyrelsen, der i 1990 havde et særligt ansvar på kontoret i Frederikshavn, til trods for, at denne person var en af tre personer, der i 2015 bad om, at blive afhørt om viden til branden på Scandinavian Star.

Først blev personens henvendelse syltet af den danske Rigsadvokat, der til trods for anmodning om bidrag til den norske undersøgelse. Dernæst fik sagerne, fra de tre nu tidligere ansatte, status som nedprioritet til trods for, at de havde gjort observationer på Scandinavian Star, der havde store betydninger for en faglig efterforskning/opklaring. 

Scandinavian Stars Danske Støtteforening udtaler sin alvorligste kritik af den måde, som danske og norske myndigheder, har håndteret denne sag på &, som foreningen kalder forkvaklet, udtaler foreningens talsmand Mike Axdal, der fortsætter:

Vi bliver nød til nu, at lægge denne oplysning ud til pressen og de folkevalgte som dokumentation for, at statsadministrationen i mange år, har haft en dagsorden, nemlig, at holde proppen i flasken i erkendelse af, at
politiet, anklagemyndigheden & domstolene begik så graværende fejl i årene 1990-1993, og siden kaldt sagen,som værende opklaret og grundigt efterforsket, siger Axdal

Siden 1993 er der forsvundet så mange dokumenter fra arkiverne hos politiet, Søfartsstyrelsen, Sø og Handelsretten & forsikringsselskaberne bag skibet. Men Støtteforeningen har i allerstørste træk sammensat sagen ud fra de dokumenter vi har samlet siden 1990. Vi har et klart billede og dokumentation på, hvad der ligger bag mordbranden på Scandinavian Star.

Hvilke personer og selskaber, der med held, vildledte, ikke bare politiet, men også domstolene til tråds for, at den fremlagte dokumentation i sagen i 1990, var falske og fabrikeret imens Søforklaringen pågik i Sø og Handelsretten.

Politiet var på ingen måde udfarende eller foretog sig efterprøvelser af de oplysninger, som de påståede ejere tilførte sagen frivilligt. Og det var en fejl der er årsag til, at sagen aldrig er blevet opklaret. Men den kan opklares, hvis myndighederne ønsker det. Danske og norske myndigheder er ikke kommet et eneste skridt videre i sagen, siden dagen for mordbranden d. 7. april 1990. Vi bistår gerne til en opklaring, afslutter Mike Axdal.

It is considered a breakthrough for Norwegian and Danish prosecutors when they on

 

Monday January 19. 2015 finally will be able to move forward with their investigation

 

related to The Scandinavian Star-tragedy on 7. April 1990 where 159 lost their lives in

 

the ship`s fire.

 

 

A directive by Police Commissioner Hans Sverre Sjovold, Oslo Police Department

 

during summer of 2014 has lead the Stortinget to announce an investigative

 

parliamentary commission, and also making it possible for the Norwegian and Danish

 

prosecutors to move forward before date of “limitation of action” later this year.

 

Survivor and kin, Mike Axdal, will on Monday morning give statement to the

 

prosecutors, as well as give access to documentation he has collected since the fire on

 

Scandinavian Star, (a passenger ferry operating between Oslo, Norway and

 

Frederikshavn, Denmark). The police consider Mike Axdal as a key witness.

 

 

Mike Axdal says;

 

 

"I look forward to Monday's session, especially because there is a Judge present, and

 

everything will be written into an official court protocol.

 

I am more worried about the Prosecutors who wants to move forward with asking the

 

judge to move forwards behind closed doors. In my opinion, the Scandinavian Star-

 

tragedy is still a matter of public interest, the time passed considered; I will request the

 

Judge to allow open doors during the trial.

 

 

It is expected that Mike Axdal will bring surprises for the prosecutors including a long list

 

of new complaints filed against private persons, lawyers and companies in the aftermath

 

of the tragedy. It is further expected that Axdal will present questions regarding the

 

complaint filed against four attorneys from the Danish Attorney General Office of 24.

 

April 2013

 

 

Axdal will initiate proceedings to ask The Court to assess the jurisdiction and proper

 

venue, based on new information and documents. He will furthermore seek an order

 

that The Court Hearings are being held in public. Should The Court reject open hearings

 

an appeal will immediately be sent to the Supreme Court.

 

 

Unfortunately, the Prosecutor has in fact forgotten to inform the legal counsel for

 

survivors and relatives, who have been identified and set up by the Oslo District Court,

 

in autumn 2014.

 

 

Among them, Attorney Siv Hallgren from Attorney John Christian Eldens office in Oslo,

 

which today was both surprised and astonished that this could happen.

 

Attorney Siv Hallgren from Law Firm Elden in Oslo will nevertheless meet in

 

Copenhagen on Monday morning, to take a seat beside Mike Axdal in court.
