The Ola Rollén Case

This site is dedicated to Ola Rollén's innocence and acquittal from the insider trading allegations by the Norwegian economic crime authority (Økokrim).

During the period 24 April to 29 May, 2019 the Borgarting Court of Appeal (Borgarting lagmannsrett) heard the Norwegian economic crime authority (Økokrim) appeal of The Oslo City Court’s unanimous verdict of Ola Rollén’s acquittal. This verdict is currently pending.

Background
On 15 March, 2017, the Norwegian economic crime authority (Økokrim) announced its decision to indict Ola Rollén for insider trading in connection to an investment in a Norwegian company. The grounds for the indictment were proven meritless by Rollén’s lawyers.

Ola Rollén was acquitted by The Oslo City Court in a unanimous verdict (announced 10 January, 2018).

Two weeks later, Økokrim announced its decision to appeal.

DID YOU KNOW?
Ola Rollén is the first investor in Europe – and possibly also in the Western world – to be indicted for insider trading due to ‘abuse’ of a share price increase entirely created by his investments and good name. MORE
