The man, who according to NRK is in his twenties, is being charged for fraud after it is claimed he managed to swindle an American investor for over USD 1 million.

The Norwegian allegedly told the victim that he was booking agent for Justin Bieber’s Scandinavian Spring tour, holding exclusive rights to five concerts.

He promised the investor he would get a USD 9 million return after the tour was over by putting the USD 1 million in. Justin Bieber, who has legions of teenage fans, is due in Scandinavia in April.

The Norwegian, held since September, has pleaded guilty to the charges against him. He has not requested a so-called plea agreement, Andrew Brown, a lawyer with the Major Frauds Section confirmed to NRK.

“There’s no minimum penalty for this type of offence, the maximum is 20 years”, he said, “[but] each of the parties will argue for the prison sentence they deem appropriate since no settlement or agreement is entered into by the prosecution or defence.”

Norway’s state broadcaster did not manage to get a comment from the defence and it is not yet known whether, or when a trial is due.

“The court will ultimately decide the length of sentence the accused will receive,” concluded Andrew Brown.
