After the VG revelations about the wonderful predecessor Svein-Magne Pedersen and his Mission Jesus Leger foundation, the Stiftelsen Supervisory Authority now opens surveillance cases.
VG revealed Saturday, how the wonderful predecessor Svein-Magne Pedersen collected money from the Norwegians aid projects that do not exist.
The case met with strong reactions, and requirements for police investigations.
See briefly explained here:
Based on the disclosures of VG from this summer until today, the foundation's supervisor is starting an investigation against Pedersen and the foundation:
"The basis of our supervision is the information that appears in media reports and which creates the risk that there may be circumstances that violate the provisions of the Act on the Foundation and statutory provisions of the Act" – writes Stiftelsestilsynet in a letter to Mission Jesus Leger sent on Monday .
Read the previous disclosure of VG: For years, Svein-Magne Pedersen and the Foundation have been selling prayers to the sick on the phone at a rate of 14 crowns per minute.
Set requirements for follow-up and control
On September 15 this year, Svein-Magne Pedersen asked for gifts because his foundation "2000 meets in India" in his "24th orphanage".
VG can document this weekend that the mission, Jesus Leger, never financed 24 orphans, but two. On one of them live only cows. The second is not used as an orphanage – but it is used to provide dozens of home help for children.
In a letter to Mission Jesus Leger, the Foundation's Supervisory Authority writes:
It requires the police to investigate the wonderful preacher: – This is a scam
– The Foundation receives funds from private donors and allocates funds to colleagues in other countries, ensuring management of the Foundation's assets in the anticipated high-risk situation. This in turn will give the Board an increased scope of duties and responsibilities.
The Foundation's Supervision Authority will examine whether the Council's assessments are correct and write in:
Wonderful preachers will stop advertising – they risk millions of fines
– The most important conditions for our supervision and under the supervision of the Trusteeship Board of the Swedish Securities Regulatory Authority have an impact on whether the Council's work organization and evaluation are correct and whether the management ensures distribution and implementation in accordance with the Foundation's goal.
He must show what they gave the money to
VG also mentioned that Svein-Magne Pedersen founded the organization in Canada, Jesus Heals. Annual reports from 1995-2002 show that millions have been transferred to Jesus Heals from Mission Jesus Leger in Norway. In addition, if the foundation in Norway ceases to exist, all funds will be sent to an organization in Canada.

The Foundation's Supervision Body is now asking Jesus Leger for clarification on which entities and objectives have allocated funds for the last three years.
"The question is whether the management ensures the sound asset management of the Mission Jesus Leger Foundation and whether the foundation conducts dividends and implementation in accordance with the Foundation's goal, including through actions that the Foundation carries out and transmits to influence the outside world and donors.

About the organization in Canada, fire wrote on behalf of the mission Jesus Leger:
"The mission of Jesus Leger, accountant and accountant is that the money is used for the purpose of the foundation, and of course not for their own benefit." The fact that the money is to be transferred to the foundation in Canada is due to the fact that the law requires such allocation.
