The 16-year-old boy from Syria, charged with preparations for carrying out terrorist acts, appealed the Oslo District Court’s ruling, according to which he must be remanded in custody for two more weeks.

His lawyer, Andreas Berg Fevang, confirmed the information to the newspaper Avisa Oslo.

“My client does not admit criminal guilt. In our view, the evidence presented so far is not sufficient to justify reasonable grounds for suspicion. 

“Two weeks have now passed, and relevant evidence should have been secured. Therefore, we don’t think that there is a risk of evidence being lost,” the lawyer said.

According to the court, the 16-year-old seems so radicalized that he believes killing infidels is legitimate and that he was well underway with concrete preparations to commit terrorist acts when he was arrested.
