Norway: John Waagaard is currently standing trial charged with attempting to obstruct the duties of a cabinet minister. Waagaard was charged after he threw a cream cake at Finance Minister Kristen Halvorsen during her first official appearance.
The charge carries a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison. Waagaard has apologized to the minister and admits his actions were wrong but thinks the charges are far more serious than the crime warrants.
The judge has allowed both the government minister and John Waagaard to testify privately. The student hopes that he will be free to attend an exam at the Norwegian School of Management on Friday.
