Investigation into Moderate MP dropped

1:27 min
  • A police investigation against the Moderate Party MP Hanif Bali has been dropped.

  • Bali was reported to the police in the middle of September, after allegations that he had tried to get a 17-year-old girl in the party's youth wing to send him nude pictures of herself.

  • In a statement, prosecutor Maria Sterup said that she has interviewed the girl and seen the images she sent to the MP, but said that "I do not regard the pictures in question as a matter of sexual posing and therefore I am closing the preliminary investigation". Bali has consistently denied the allegations.
