Section 155. Violence or threats against public officials

Any person who by violence or threats induces a public official to perform or abstain from performing an official act, or seeks to achieve this, shall be subject to a penalty of a fine or imprisonment for a term not exceeding three years.
«Public official» means any person exercising public authority on behalf of central or local government, or who holds such authority by virtue of his/her position. «Public official» includes military guards and any person who in the course of duty or by request provides assistance to a public official, or security at a public official's place of work.
The first paragraph also applies to offences against officials of the International Criminal Court.
On condition of mutual applicability, the King may decide that the first paragraph shall also apply to offences against officials working for the public authorities of another country or for inter-governmental organisations of which Norway is or becomes a member.
