Three weeks ago, Advocate General (JAG) Arne Willy Dahl asked Sunde to investigate Home Guard Commander Kristin Lund for allegedly revealing secret information about the now disbanded HV016 Special Forces Unit.

During a radio debate in November 2010 on NRK’s Dagsnytt 18 programme, Major General Lund mention one person sitting in the studio at the time was associated with the Home Guard’s HV016 Special Forces Unit.

General Harald Sunde explained his decision not to press charges, saying there is no basis for disciplinary action.

In a parallel case related to the unit’s disbandment, the Ministry of Defence secretly investigated former HV016 union representatives, claiming they used excerpts from classified military material to defend their case.

These individuals have also been acquitted, after General Sunde considered there was no reason to proceed with the case.

“It is important to emphasize that these are two separate issues and both of them have been given thorough consideration separately. The conclusion is that neither case contains grounds for further disciplinary proceedings. No harm has been caused to the military. Even if it had, the damage is so marginal that there is no basis for additional investigation”, Bent-Ivan Myhre, spokesperson for Chief of Defense Harald Sunde, tells Dagbladet.
