At the end of May, Friborg will host the largest investigation of its kind: 32 defendants indicted for contravention of the law on the public domain, contravention of police orders, disturbance of the peace and the offense of “constraint”, an offense punishable by a penalty of up to ‘to 3 years in prison. A press conference held by the defense announced the contours of the hearing on Wednesday.
