Dagbladet: But there is no outstanding Norwegian case when the criminal trial of Davud, Bujak and Jakobsen gets under way on Tuesday.
The defendant is Michael Davud (40), Uighur from China, Shawan Sadek Saeed Bujak (38), Kurd from Iraq, and Uzbek David Jakobsen (33), all with a permanent residence permit in Norway.
Police Security Service (PST) charged last 8th of July, the three men with having entered into alliance with the aim of committing one or more terrorist acts on Norwegian soil.
The indictment is drawn up by prosecutors at the National District Attorney office by order of Public Prosecutions.
According to the indictment, the three have planned to carry out terrorism with explosives against the Jyllands-Posten in Denmark. They also have planned to shoot the Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard.
Authorities believe Michael Davud is the principal behind the supposed terrorist related attempt and that the defendants have connections to the terrorist organization al-Qaeda.
Davud had admitted last year planning to harm Chinese interests in Norway, but neither he nor the 2nd man admits guilt in the matter.
According to the indictment, David Jakobsen been actively involved in terrorist planning until he made contact with the police 20 November, 2009. He has since collaborated with the police and PST, but according to the prosecuting authority that does not relieve him of criminal responsibility.
