A 32-year-old Polish citizen who was indicted for gross aggravated robbery against two men in Bergen in 2015 is to be extradited to his home country by military aircraft.
The man will be extradited on Monday, writes the newspaper Bergensavisen.
The man is charged with another Polish citizen, a 37-year-old man who has been in custody in Norway since August 2019.
The Bergen police have been working to get the man extradited out of Norway, which has been difficult due to the Coronavirus outbreak and resulting in closed borders. The prosecution hopes the criminal case against the two can begin in September this year.
In February 2015, Petter Slengesol was kidnapped and brutally abused in his own van. Ten months later, Reidar Osen experienced the same. Osen was held captive for several hours, beaten, and threatened with a gun.
The prosecution has dropped the criminal case against a third polish, who according to BA believes is allegedly to be a brother of the 32-year-old whom the police are waiting to hand over.
