British singer Amy Winehouse has been summoned to appear in a Norwegian court – two months after she was arrested and fined in the country.
The Rehab hitmaker, husband Blake Fielder-Civil and her hairdresser were briefly arrested and fined 500 euros for drug use and possession of seven grams of marijuana in the western Norwegian town of Bergen on 18 October.
Winehouse has been ordered to appear in court on 29 February, according to Bergen police lawyer Rudolf Christoffersen.
He says: “The Gulating court (in Bergen) sent us a letter dated December 18, 2007, stating that… this case cannot be tried in absentia.”
The 24-year-old reportedly claimed she was tricked by police into signing a confession, but Christoffersen insists, “(Police were) very certain the three knew what they were signing. They were interrogated by a police officer who speaks fluent English… and they paid the fine on the spot.”
