Methanol alcohol accidentally sold
The police and the prosecuting authorities claim the deadly methanol alcohol was produced by mistake and it was never supposed to be sold in Norway.
The alcohol was produced at a factory in Portugal. Several sources the Norwegian television channel NRK has talked to stated that it was a mistake that several thousand liters with poisonous spirits was smuggled to Norway.
The methanol alcohol came to Norway the fall of 2002, and the people charged in the case state that someone tried to destroy their operation by mixing methanol in the alcohol. However, this statement seems to be incorrect according to the police and the prosecuting authority, reported NRK Østfold.
The first of three cases against three persons charged of selling alcohol that killed two persons in the Moss area, starts in January.
