In 2020, up to NOK 50,000 was deposited into an account in Sandnes Sparebank. The name of the account was “Najmuddin Faraj Ahmad”, better known as Mullah Krekar.

The money, which had been collected through a fundraising campaign started by Krekar’s family, was to go to pay Krekar’s Italian lawyer.

NRK writes this in a news item on Monday.

The bank account was blocked for outgoing transactions, but PST does not believe that this was sufficient.

They believe the bank should have frozen the account completely, and have therefore chosen to give the bank a fine of NOK one million.

The bank’s lawyer, Gunnar Holm Ringen from PwC, tells NRK that they disagree with PST on several things, and that they took many measures to stop the money.

The case will now be heard in Hordaland district court this week. The case was postponed to autumn 2022.

Trine Stangeland, managing director of Sandnes Sparebank then stated that the case was very stressful for the bank and the employees involved.

– The bank needs a clarification in this extensive and demanding case and we do not understand the reason for the postponement. Now the bank has to settle for appearing in another court and starting the case all over again with new explanations for a new court, Stangeland said.
