Law is the same for all, and all are equal in front of the law. The Norway police had followed this strictly and shocked everyone by imposing a fine on the country’s Prime Minister Erna Solberg for violating the Covid-19 social distancing rules.
As per reports, the PM broke the virus rules when she organised a family gathering to celebrate her birthday. Following this, the cops fined her 20,000 Norwegian crowns ($2,352).
However, Erna Solberg, the two-term prime minister, apologised last month for arranging an event for her 60th birthday with 13 family members, despite a government ban on meetings of more than 10 people.
In order to uphold the public’s trust in the rules on social restrictions, the police fined the PM, who has been at the forefront of the government’s work to impose restrictions.
