Kinshasa - An autopsy carried out by military authorities in
the Democratic Republic of Congo shows that Tjostolv Moland, a Norwegian
citizen imprisoned in DRCsince 2009, died by hanging himself.
In a communique, the army's deputy auditor General Munkuto
Kiyana said: "The investigation shows Moland committed suicide, and that
he committed suicide by hanging himself."
Moland along with another Norwegian were sentenced to death
in DRC in the murder of their driver. The court in the north-eastern city of
Kinsangani also convicted them of spying for Norway because they were carrying
military ID cards at the time. They denied the charges and the Norwegian
government has denied that the men were spies.
