Soccer star in paternity case

«I have no comment,» said Per A. Flod, Carews agent and advisor, to TV 2 Nettavisen.
«The case will be heard in court,» said Erling O. Lyngtveit, the womans lawyer, to Se og Hør. «The adversary party does not want to admit anything at all. We have several times been in contact with the adversary party without any results. Last time Carew was in Oslo, he didnt have the time to meet us because he was off to soccer practice.»

The lawyer said that he is shocked by the way the woman has been treated by Carew and Flod.
«This has case has been a huge strain on my client for more than six months,» Lyngtveit said to the magazine. «My reaction is that this is not very manly of Carew. The truth will nevertheless be revealed one day. Carew and his lawyer Flod represent a set of values that are totally foreign to me. The adversary party sent among other things a letter to me that I would describe as 'inappropriate'.»
According to the magazine, Carew has to provide a DNA sample.
