The case is being updated.

In nearly two months, City Council leader Raymond Johansen (AP) led the investigation of the notices against the school council On Mars Thorkildsen (SV). There is an internal audit section in the county administration that handled the research.

A number of interviews were conducted and a large number of documents were reviewed. The district commissioner was also on the case. This was announced by Raymond Johansen at a press conference on Friday.

"With this as a starting point, I concluded on the subject," says Johansen.

Based on the appraiser's assessment, he concluded: Thorkildsen did not violate procurement rules, nor did it violate the law's prohibition against remittances.

He then explained the essence of the case: allegations of violation of the Workplace Act.

"I understand the agency may have been experienced as demanding and difficult, but I can not find any collapse or other conditions that would exclude my confidence in Thorkildsen," admits Johansen.

He showed that there were few documents that could clarify the statements of the statement in this area and that the interviews conducted show how much the episodes were perceived.

The reason for the subject

September 7 several directors of the senior management group of 21 persons of the Educational Administration sent a notice through the Central System of Notification of the City of Oslo. At the same time, they gave Aftenposten access to the notice, alleging, inter alia, that Thorkildsen had acted in breach of the Working Environment Act against agency employees.

The warnings also meant that Thorkildsen had acted in violation of the municipality's procurement rules in favor of the Change Factory Foundation, where she had previously worked. In addition, several other episodes and conditions were mentioned in the notice.

September 18 a new warning has been sent. The warnings meant that Thorkildsen had violated her statutory protection against retaliation when, after the notice, she declared problems of cooperation with the leadership of the education agency.

September 25th a third warning was issued alleging that the city council, including city council leader Raymond Johansen, had violated his statutory duty of confidentiality through leaks to the media.

Ba the school principal is going

Following the warnings, it became clear that over time there have been serious problems of collaboration between the city council and the Board of Education executive council.

It was known, among other things, that city council leader Raymond Johansen, before the first warning, asked the powerful Oslo school principal, Astrid Søgnen, to leave at the age of 67. She initially has the right to remain in office until she is 70 years old.

Thursday, November 8, Sønen turned 67, but she did not leave. Søgnen hired lawyer Jan Fougner at the Wiersholm law firm, one of the country's most experienced labor lawyers, with the desire to remain in office.

At the same time, the Sakskomplex gained a clear political side.

For two months, the bourgeois opposition in the city council asked Thorkildsen to explain and conclude the allegations of problems of cooperation. The agency has an obligation to inform the city council, but it has not yet responded – with reference to ongoing investigations.
