Was it false reporting, when back in 2012 Vestas initiated a police case against dismissed CFO Henrik Nørremark? The question will be further investigated by the Danish economic crimes unit after Nørremark's US advisor reported Vestas to the state prosecutor. This is according to Danish business news daily Børsen.

Nørremark's advisor believes that Vestas, including current chairman Berg Nordberg, former chairman Bent Carlsen, and former CEO Ditlev Engel were aware that their report against Henrik Nørremark for embezzlement of DKK 140 million (EUR 19 million) did not hold water. Nevertheless, they went to the economic crimes unit which dropped the case in 2015 and then Vestas settled with Nørremark in 2016.
