A convicted man from Telemark will be produced for custody in Norway this week after spending more than ten years in prison in the Gambia.

Lawyer Sigurd Klomsæt, who has assisted the man in his 50s for many years, told TV 2 that his client was back in Norway and in police custody. The police did not want to comment on the case.

According to the plan, he will be produced for custody at the beginning of the week, according to the TV channel.

The man in his 50s was arrested by Gambian police in 2010 after the authorities in the country were tipped off by Norwegian police. When the police approached the man, he allegedly had several underage boys in the bedroom of the house where he lived.

The man was then also charged with several new crimes that had not been legally processed in Norway after being previously convicted of abusing children, including his own son.
