A Norwegian news team has claimed they were detained, harassed and threatened while reporting in Sochi.
Oystein Bogen, a reporter for TV2, and cameraman Aage Aunes, had arrived in Adygea – south of Sochi – on 31 October.
Traffic police stopped the news team six times, and on one occasion alleged the anchor had been using narcotic drugs.
When Bogen denied the allegation, he was asked what would happen if he declined.
The officer allegedly told him: ‘That will be an admission of your guilt and we will put you in jail.’
