The appeal case after the bunker party in Oslo starts on Tuesday

Two men have been charged with, among other things, negligent bodily harm and breach of the Fire and Explosion Protection Act after an illegal party that was organized in a disused shelter at St. Hanshaugen in Oslo in August 2020.

In January last year, the defendants were sentenced in the Oslo district court to prison for one year and six months. They were also sentenced to pay compensation and restitution totaling around NOK 550,000 to two men who were seriously injured.

The prosecution appealed the sentencing, while the convicted have appealed the sentence in its entirety. The appeal case will be heard in the Borgarting Court of Appeal on Tuesday.

It was at 3.46 am on Sunday 30 August 2020 that a police patrol found seven young people unconscious at the intersection between Uelands gate and Colletts gate on St. Hanshaugen in Oslo. Evacuation and life-saving first aid were then initiated.

26 people ended up in hospital after the party, two of whom suffered brain damage after inhaling diesel exhaust during the illegal rave party.

At least 200 people were invited to the rave party, which was held in a closed and sanitized bunker. During the hours the party lasted, around 100 people attended. Inside the bunker, they placed a diesel generator, without ensuring proper fire protection or ventilation, according to the judgment from the district court.

The case runs from 16 to 30 April.
