Hexagon is not wavering an inch in its support for CEO Ola Rollén, accused of insider trading. Hexagon’s incoming chair Gun Nilsson says, “There is strong evidence that demonstrates Ola Rollén’s innocence. His handling of this frustrating situation has demonstrated that he is an exceptional leader.”
On the other hand Økokrim, the Norwegian National Authority for Investigation and Prosecution of Economic and Environmental Crime, is unwavering in its belief Rollén is guilty. Marianne Bender, prosecutor at the agency, says that they are convinced they can demonstrate he has committed punishable offences. However the conviction the prosecutor is seeking remains confidential until the trial.
The measuring technology company Hexagon has appointed lawyer Hans Strandberg and his law firm Nordia for an independent inquiry alongside Ola Rollén’s defence. Ola Rollén remains as CEO just now.
