Norway: Imam wins compensation for children beating accusations
Via VG (Norwegian):
In 2009 Imam Ghulam Nabi, of the Islamic Culture Society Buskerud & Vestfold, was accused of beating children with a cane during Koran studies. However, after some time, police dropped the charges.
The imam sued the state and will get 15,000 Kroner (~$2600) in compensation, reports Drammens Tidende.
His lawyer, Svein Duesund, says that the sum is too low, and is considering appealing. Duesund says that the police immediately went to the media, and that had it been a common Norwegian priest, the compensation would have been much higher. Duesund had demanded 100,000 kroner for his client.
