the case: – He appeared in a secret meeting

SØRUMSAND (Dagbladet): It’s been seven years since they filed for divorce, but the process of reopening the triple homicide on Orderud’s farm is still under discussion. Together, they also found themselves on the farm on Wednesday, when the Commission for the Resumption of Criminal Proceedings came for an inspection.

– My client will pass the test and get a retrial. They work together on this in a joint project and will stick together until we reach the goal, says Veronica Orderud’s attorney, Frode Sulland.

On Wednesday, nearly 20 people showed up in Sørumsand’s courtyard. The members of the Commission for the reopening of criminal proceedings, their delegates and several case managers were present. Also present were Per and Veronica Orderud, private investigator Tore Sandberg, lawyer Frode Sulland, Per Orderud’s lawyer Arvid Sjødin and lawyer Andreas Sjødin.

– Interesting to see

Sulland says his client’s motivation for attending today’s meeting was a desire to follow the process and what is happening now. It has been more than four years since the former couple Orderud filed for reinstatement. Still no one knows when a decision will come.

– You find it interesting to see what the commission does. There were also some clarifications along the way as to what the places looked like 20 years ago compared to today, Sulland says.

Per and Veronica Orderud, along with Kristin Kirkemo and Lars Grønnerød, were convicted of complicity in triple murder, after Kristian Magnus Orderud (80), Marie Orderud (84) and their daughter Anne Orderud Paust (47) were found murdered. fired at the housing estate at Orderud farm in 1999. No one was convicted of carrying out the murders. All four denied firing shots, but both Per and Veronica Orderud were sentenced to 21 years in prison.

Asked if the lawyer is satisfied with the commission’s work on the case so far, he says he has no basis to judge him. However, he asks for clarification regarding several investigations they have carried out since 2018.

– What I can say is that we have made a series of requests for interrogation and investigative acts of which we do not know if they have been carried out, nor do we know if they will be carried out. My impression of today’s meeting is that those who attended were interested, receptive to inputs and thought it was an advantage to be present. But I also get the impression that they think they know the case through the documents, Sulland says.

Per’s desire

Both the kår house where the murders of Kristian Magnus Orderud (80), Marie Orderud (84) and their daughter Anne Orderud Paust (47) were committed in 1999, the main house where Per Orderud currently lives and the rented house , better known as Fjellet, were visited on Wednesday.

For Orderud he was satisfied even after the inspection. This was despite the fact that he believed that much more could be said about the matter than they had succeeded during the two hours of the meeting.

– I hope they take with them the points we have presented here today and take them to heart. I want them to read everything we sent them. And of course I want the case reopened, Per Orderud tells Dagbladet.

The time horizon for the commission’s work was not a topic during the inspection at the Orderud farm, and it is still uncertain when a decision will be made. Dagbladet was unable to contact the commission chair, Siv Hallgren, for comment on Wednesday.
