But wait, there is more. Birketvedt's resume is full of awards that it's impossible to verify (i.e. fixtional), and VGshows some example:
1999: International Woman of the Year. She first claimed to have gotten
this from "American Biography Association", but later "corrected" this to "The
International Biographical Centre of Cambridge i England"
1999-2000: Intellectuals of the Year. Later corrected to "Intellectuals of
1999-2000: Outstanding People of the 20th Century. Given to her by The
International Biographical Centre of Cambridge.
2000: Gold Medal in Science and Peace, Albert Schweitzer International
University. She later change the name of the medal to "Conmemorative Medal", but
still from the "prestigous" ASU...
She was featured as a diet expert in VG's "Vektklubben.no", and due to her suspicous resume, VG ended their co-operation with "dr" Briketvedt.
And there is even more. Her PhD is real enough, it's from 1995 in Tromsø. But one article, published in British Medical Journal, the editor was really suspicous about the content. However, acording to an interview with Dagbladet he couldn't prove that the data was fictitious, so he had to publish it. Nobody has later been able to reproduce the results from the article, and the conclusions have been deemed faulty.
I will follow this case and see what comes out of it.
VG has done a follow up.
