The police called in all the people involved in the sex scandal for questioning Wednesday after a young couple walked on stage in the middle of a Cumshots concert Tuesday, took of their clothes and had sex, right there in front of the audience.
As sex in public places in illegal in Norway, the five Cumshots band members and the couple were fined NOK 10,000 (USD 1,470) each.
Tommy Hol Ellingsen, age 28, and Leona Johansson, age 21, who pulled off the controversial stunt, have stated that they will not pay the fine.
«No, this fine is ridiculous,» Ellingsen said to TV 2 Nettavisen. «There will be no fine; there will be a court case and the whole nine yards.»
The couple has not yet hired a lawyer, but Ellingsen said he does not think that will be a problem.
«There is not a problem to locate one,» Ellingsen stated. «The case has gotten a lot of publicity, and there are probably a lot of lawyers who want this case.»
«It is ridiculous that we are prosecuted and sentenced on a moral basis at the same time as Norway is in the war against Iraq,» Ellingsen claimed. «Violence is aired on TV every day, and if this is so terrible, we could have called this performance art, and we wouldnt have been fined then.»
Festival not fined
Kristopher Schau and the rest of the members of Cumshots had Wednesday not yet decided whether or not to pay the fine they received because they allowed the sex stunt at their concert.
The festival management stated that they had no idea of what was going to go down on stage during Cumshots concert. Ellingsen and Johansson were listed as part of Cumshots crew. Management apologized for the stunt and apologized for the fact that the security guards did not going in and stop the concert.
The police have decided not to press charges against the festival management.
