The Danish Attorney General's Office for fraud and financial crimes (SØIK) will reportedly be appealing the judgement against Lars Moller, the former CEO of OW Bunker subsidiary firm Dynamic Oil Trading (DOT), at the Court of Aalborg in Denmark for a stricter sentence.
The Danish court in May charged Moller with misconduct of “a particularly serious nature”, cf. section 280 (2) of the Criminal Code, cf. section 286 (1); he was also found guilty of violation of section 299 (1) of the Criminal Code.
Moller in mid-June planned to appeal against an 18-month jail term sentence by the Court of Aalborg in Denmark.
OW Bunker, which was bankrupted in November 2014, found DOT trading with a partner that significantly exceeded the approved credit limit of USD $10 million.
“It was established by the judgment that at the time of the competition there were a total of about USD $90.2 million in transactions which had not been posted,” a statement from the court revealed.
