He will not say in court whether the other two were involved, but he claims he has not seen such a farm before. His girlfriend has announced that she will not give an explanation. The 27-year-old tells himself that he was there.
The boyfriend is part of the Vegan Party’s administration, while the 27-year-old is not a member of the party.
At Wednesday’s court hearing, senior plaintiff Lise Frandsen goes into the flesh of the 29-year-old party leader, who during the visit to the pig farm in May recorded a video that was broadcast live via the Vegan Party’s Facebook page.
And judging by Lise Frandsen’s question, she does not exactly think that Henrik Vindfeldt’s explanation in court agrees with what one hears in the video.
Before playing the video, Henrik Vindfeldt has explained that he and the two co-defendants had been to an event called Madens Folkemøde on Lolland. On the way home, he decides he wants to see a pig farm.
In the video, however, you hear Henrik Vindfeldt use phrases such as “every time we are out like this in some places”. And according to Lise Frandsen, it does not harmonize with his explanation before playing the video.
And Henrik Vindfeldt also explains that he has seen pig farms before.
– Now I think you are sitting and saying that you have seen lots of pig herds, it sounds challenging from the senior prosecutor.
– I’m from Falster, and they are all over the place, but I’ve never been inside before, it sounds from Henrik Vindfeldt.
The prosecution believes that the episode took place under particularly aggravating circumstances, because Vindfeldt by his presence has exposed the animals to health hazards.
Defense lawyer Kåre Pihlmann does part of his interrogation by asking Vindfeldt if he had been in contact with animals, living or dead, before the visit to the farm. Vindfeldt rejects this outright.
Vindfeldt also says that he has been inside the building for a maximum of two minutes.
The vegan leader is accused of having filmed in another pigsty as well. Also it was recorded on video and shared online. But Vindfeldt tells the court that he was allowed by an employee on the farm to go inside. The employee came later and asked them to go, which they did.
Judgment in the case is expected on Wednesday afternoon. The prosecution is going after a jail sentence.
