The Dynamic Oil criminal trial started at an Aalborg Court on Wednesday (4 April) morning, according to Danish paper Nordjyske.
Lars Moller, the former CEO of Dynamic Oil Trading, the Singapore-based subsidiary of O.W. Bunker, was represented by lawyers Arvid Andersen and Anders Nemeth.
They were defending Moller against a charge by Denmark’s general prosecutor in July 2017 over fraud of agent for more than DKK 800 million ($132.52 million).
The lawyers argued the charge requires Dynamic Oil Trading to benefit from the misconduct, which is not the case for Moller.
“That recital does not fit Dynamic Oil Trading, which was just established with a deliberately high risk profile,” said Nemeth.
“Lars Moller's actions are best regarded as commercial, risky actions.”
Marie Tullin, Senior Prosecutor, State Prosecutor for Serious Economic and International Crime at Denmark, presented her case to the court from the statement of accountability of audit firm Ernst & Young.
Ernst & Young prepared the statement to describe the economic conditions in Dynamic Oil Trading for Soren Halling-Overgaard, a trustee for the O.W. Bunker bankruptcy.
"A company has the right to choose a high risk profile, but the accusation against Lars Moller is based on Lars Moller's lack of competence to make a decision on a large and risky credit grant," she said.
The trial is set to continue
on Friday with an interrogation of Lars Moller.
