Criminals Demand $10 Million in Monero (XMR) in Norwegian Kidnapping Case

Police have received no signs whether Falkevik Hagen was still alive, "but we haven't either received any sign that she is not alive", he added.

The abducted woman's husband is one of Norway's wealthiest men, with an estimated net-worth of $200 million dollars accumulated from the real-estate and energy markets.

The police are now asking the public for any information regarding the search for Anne-Elisabeth Falkevik Hagen.

Officers have released two surveillance videos taken outside businessman Tom Hagen's office on the day his wife, Anne-Elisabeth Falkevik Hagen, disappeared and want three people seen in the October 31 footage to get in touch.

The Norwegian police have reportedly been forced to use civilian cars with fake license numbers when moving in the area around the couple's residence outside of Oslo, in order not to arouse suspicion in case the suspected kidnappers might have been watching.

Brøske noted police have received no proof that Hagen is alive, "but we haven't received any indication that she isn't alive either".

Indeed, it seems that the only hopes will be on triumphing in Europe, as they have been doing for so many years. It was an attempt to bat away crisis headlines, but it did not work. "His recovery will be monitored".

Quoting unnamed sources, Norwegian newspaper Verdens Gang reported that the unidentified plotters-whether they are holding Hagen or not-have demanded a ransom of just over $10 million in the Monero cryptocurrency.

It has also been reported that there had been limited contact between police and the suspects with the only communication sent through encrypted digital platforms.

The kidnappers are said to have asked for the ransom to be paid in cryptocurrency Monero, which can be sent and received anonymously.

"Despite a broad and extensive investigation, we need more information", he continued.

"We still have no suspects", he said. Police refused to confirm the exact amount, but said they have advised Hagen's family not to comply.

Local media reports that despite their fortune, the couple lived "modestly", choosing a "secluded" and "private" life over the limelight, which was unfortunately not enough to keep them off the criminals' radar. Norwegian police have also engaged worldwide counterparts in Interpol and Europol as part of the probe.
