Norway MP called fortune-tellers

“Ms Khan initially said the expensive calls were satellite phone calls to her boyfriend, who she said was on a secret foreign mission with Britain’s special forces.”

A Norwegian politician has said she will not seek re-election after running up a large phone bill ringing fortune-tellers at parliament’s expense.

Saera Khan, an MP for the ruling Labour Party, admits calling pay-per-minute fortune-tellers 793 times in one nine-month period, for a total of 133 hours.

In one three-month period, she spent 48,000 kroner (£4,590; $7,750), the daily Verdens Gang newspaper reported.

Ms Khan, 29, who is on sick leave, has said she has paid the money back.
