Mulla Krekar (Najumuddin Faraj Ahmad) is no longer in Norway and has been extradited to Italy, according to Minister of Justice and Emergency Management Monica Maeland (H).
The minister informed about the extradition at a press conference on Thursday.
She stated that the Ministry of Justice and Emergency Management has received assurances from the Italian authorities that Krekar will be well and properly taken care of in connection with the Corona situation.
Najumuddin Faraj Ahmad, known as Mulla Krekar, was agreed to be extradited on February 12 to Italy, where last year he was sentenced to twelve years in prison for having planned terror attacks. The verdict was appealed.
FRP politicians Sylvi Listhaug and Jøran Kallmyr invited to a cake party at the Storting.
The politicians provide a cake decorated with a Norwegian and an Italian flag and with the inscription “Good luck, Krekar”, writes NRK.
“We just say good luck and hope he never comes back,” said Progress Party’s deputy leader Sylvi Listhaug.
Several Frp politicians participated at the ‘cake party,’ according to NRK.
The conservative politician Anniken Hauglie also applauds the extradition. On her Facebook page, the former Minister for Work and Social Affairs writes : “Finally! Mulla Krekar has been expelled from Norway for several years because he is a danger to the security of our country. Italy has asked to have him extradited, so today he was sent out of the country. Good on Monica Meland. »
