<p>In the video, Moxnes can be seen putting on sunglasses and asking his fiancée what she thinks. After being seen stuffing the sunglasses into his pocket, he is subsequently seen leaving the store without paying for them.</p>
<p>The lawmaker was charged with stealing on June 30 by the police, “with the intent to obtain an unjust gain for himself or others.” He was fined 3,000 kroner (approximately 24,000) for stealing the Hugo Boss sunglasses, which were worth 1,199 kroner (nearly Rs 10,000).</p>
<p>Moxnes started calling in sick in July as a result of a widely shared video of the stealing. Moxnes admitted to the theft and tendered his resignation one day before he was supposed to return from his medical vacation.On July 24, he admitted to the theft in a Facebook post and resigned from his position as party head.</p>
<p>On Facebook, he said that those in charge should be questioned and held responsible.</p>
<p>“Many have doubted my ability to pull off anything so stupid. I’ve pondered this question a lot over the last two weeks. I haven’t had a whole explanation given to me. However, I’m certain that whatever I did was wrong, and I now have to deal with the consequences,” he added.</p>
<p>According to the Red Party national executive committee, Marie Sneve Martinussen will follow Moxnes as party head.</p>
<p>Martinussen criticized Moxnes’ handling of the issue and the theft on Monday, claiming that Moxnes had not given the “correct information” about the matter from the start.</p>
