The culture protection chief of Nordland county will take Mesta AS to court for overturning the six-meter tall stone, as workers cleared a road in Steigen.
Egil Murud, culture protection chief, said to NRK: "We finished writing the report [on Wednesday] and will deliver it today."
In mid-June a local sub-contractor employed by Mesta smashed the monumental stone on Engeløya island, 1,300 kilometres north of Oslo. The stone was overturned by an edge-cutter machine, used for clearing weeds and grass.
