Rumours has it that these two guys where starting a training ground for mercenaries in Congo-Kimchasa and one of them registered a security company in Uganda last month.
They are also said to have been trying to recruit norwegian citizens to join up in their mission.
The very mission should concern westerns guarding a not named oilcompanys project in the region.

Both of the accused are ex norwegian mountain rangers of the telemark division, (arctic trained)
The two norwegians admits to nothing.

In the sentence the state of Congo also demand the Norwegian government to pay $60 million for damages.
