“We sent a patrol to the hotel after a report that a delegation from Ghana had been robbed,” Grønland police station investigative leader Marius Erlandsen told VG, saying the matter has been reported as theft.

Police have secured CCTV video footage showing an individual exiting the entrance reception area with the suitcase containing the items.

The Ghanaian monarch, king of the Ashanti region claims the larceny took place on Wednesday afternoon.

HM is currently on a visit to Norway in connection with the Norwegian-African Business Summit 2012, due to start at the same address in downtown Oslo tomorrow.

Neither hotel managing director Tarje Hellebust, nor Ghanaian delegation representatives wish to comment on the matter, but the missing items are of what police officer Erlandsen describes as being of “great sentimental value to their owners.”

HM uses the jewels in connection with official occasions as monarch.

“We think this is terrible sad, as hosts for His Majesty”, said Norwegian-African Business Association (NABA) leader Eivind Fjeldstad, “We know that is of great symbolic value to him.”
