ATENCIÒN: 1 OR MAYBE 2 FORMER EMPLOYEES AT NATIONAL DANISH POLICE INDICTED WITH BRIBERY AND EMBEZZLEMENT IN ATEA-CASE

March 6, 2017

Altogether 3 former publicly employed persons at the National Danish Police and Region Zealand were last Thursday indicted with receiving bribes and with embezzlement in the so called Atea-case centered around it-company Atea.
All 3 of them previously held trusted positions. The news outlets don’t detail whether it is the National Danish Police or Region Zealand that may count altogether 2 indictments?
4 former employees at it-company Atea are indicted with generating bribery.
Apart from altogether 7 indictments raised against individuals, the it-company Atea was also indicted last Thursday.
Among other things the former public employees at the National Danish Police and Region Zealand were indicted with accepting invitations to gourmet dinners at famous Danish upper-end restaurants.

BRIBERY TRIPS TO DUBAI,
FLORIDA, LAS VEGAS AND ROME

Furthermore, according to the indictments Atea paid for trips to Dubai, Florida, Las Vegas and Rome in order to retain its it-customers.
Also, those persons that are indicted with accepting bribes have been staying at hotels like Frederiksminde, Radisson Blu and Hotel Bella Sky Comwell.
The case started in May 2015, when Region Zealand reported possible bribery to the police.
The police reports ended in arrests and searches in June 2015. For a period 6 persons were kept in custody.
Altogether 22 persons have been indicted in the so called Atea-case. The court already treated 8 cases. 6 persons were convicted, 2 persons were acquitted. Several of the cases have been appealed. Altogether 20 charges were withdrawn.

POST SCRIPTUM / QUESTIONS

In July 2016 the Danish media reported, that altogether 2 chiefs at the National Danish Police both had been charged with bribery and sacked from the police.

On July 20 last year news readers learned, that the 2 ex-police chiefs had run a kind of ‘career partnerships’ during their various employments.

In what way was this partnership structured? What was it all about?
Previously, it was also reported as a separate angle in the Atea-case, that some of the then suspected persons risked being charged with misusing other people’s names.
Is there anything about misuse of identities in any of the 7 indictments, that were declared last Friday?

According to Jesper Høberg, reporter at Danish daily Jyllands-Posten, the court has ruled that a nameban is to be upheld in the Atea case. For this reason JP Finans is not permitted to identify the indicted persons. This was reported by Jyllands-Posten on March 3, 2017.
