Nav stops payouts to Islamist on the run
Nav stops payments to Mohyeldeen Mohammad. The Islamist is probably on the run in Morocco after he did not show up for his trial on Monday
The Islamist Mohyeldeen Mohammad is accused of threatening Norwegian Member of Parliament, Abid Q. Raja (Liberals). On Monday, the lawsuit against the Islamist was scheduled to start, but Mohammad did not meet in the Oslo District Court. Now, Mohammad can also lose his monetary support from Nav.
– PST has made Nav aware of the arrest decision and the APB request. Nav has confirmed that they will suspend payments to Mohyeldeen Mohammad if he applies for payment in November, states Attorney General Frederik B. Ranke to NRK.
– I think it’s quite right that Nav stops the payouts. It is fair and reasonable. The Norwegian taxpayers should not fund Mohammed Mohammad’s evasion from a criminal case, says Ranke.
The prosecution has decided to send an APB for threat indicted Mohyeldeen Mohammad through Interpol. The reason is that he did not meet in Oslo District Court on Monday, where he is charged with making threats towards the outspoken Norwegian Member of Parliament, Abid Q. Raja (Liberals). The Prosecutor’s Office believes that the Islamist is in Morocco.
– We believe that he avoids criminal prosecution. Oslo District Court agrees that he is avoiding criminal prosecution, and last night we received an arrest warrant from them. That entails that he is sought after internationally. I’m assuming this will happen today, but the police are in control of this, Attorney General Ranke tells VG on Tuesday.
Withdraws cash in Marocco
During the trial, it was revealed that Mohyeldeen Mohammad withdrew cash in Morocco a few days ago.
– Some time ago, Mohyeldeen Mohammad performed an Internet search on countries that don’t have an extradition agreement with Norway. Morocco doesn’t, but it does not mean that Moroccans are unwilling to hand over persons to Norway, they are just not obliged to do so, the prosecutor elaborates.
It was set aside a week for the trial. The District Court, prosecution and defence have already reached an agreement for a change of dates, which is now scheduled for Tuesday 13th until Monday 19th, November.
