Nurse deemed too sexy to be a police officer
A Norwegian nurse who applied to be a police officer has been turned down because she is too sexy, after pictures surfaced from her nude modelling career.
Rejected: Ashima intends to fight the decision not to let her be a police officer (CEN)
Nurse Cathrine Ashima, who models part time, breezed through the medical and fitness tests required to join the force but was rejected after an interview panel questioned her over her work as a nude model.
Police deny that the decision was made on these grounds saying that ‘the applicant was not found suitable on the basis of the following: Work motivation, understanding about the role of the police and a lack of general knowledge.'
However Ashima says she knew she would not get the job after a female member of the interview panel confronted her with her modelling shots.
'During the interview one of the women on the board held up some nude pictures of me and started waving them in my face.
'I think it's too bad that someone in the police thinks I am unfit to be a police officer because of my great body.'
Despite passing the tests with flying colours police told the nurse that working as a nude model was akin to being a member of a right-wing organisation.
'It's just terrible political correctness,' Ashima said.
She has now reportedly sought legal help and intends to challenge the board’s decision.
