The Norwegian anti-fraud unit has dismissed the case concerning allegations of corruption against Veidekke in Uganda. But now a fax, discovered during a raid last summer, suggests that a British lobbying firm offered inducements to Ugandan politicians on behalf of the Norwegian company. – The lobbying firm Amisa never got paid a penny from us, states Kristian Mathismoen, at the time executive of Veidekke in the Karuma-project, in an interview to NorWatch.

Norwegians common oil fortune is placed in production of nuclear missiles, in spite of the fact that Norway refuses to have nuclear arms placed on the country’s territory.  The investment made into the US arms giant Lockheed Martin makes the Oil Fund a party to the production of the highly advanced Trident II D5 missile.

Last autumn the Social Left Party (SV) had to make a humble appology after having claimed thet the Oli Fund invested in cluster bombs prodution. They really didn't have to do that. For now NorWatch can reveal that the Oli Fund investment into the american weapons giant General Dynamics gives Norwegians cluster-blod on their hands after all.
Norway does not want nuclear weapons placed on Norwegian territory. Still, Norwegian's common oil fortune has been invested in production of nuclear missils and war heads: The vast majority of people in Norway want an international ban on nuclear weapons.
