EXCLUSIVE: NORWEGIAN GOVT COULD REQUEST EXTRADITION OF UK ISLAMIST ANJEM CHOUDARY
The influence of Anjem Choudary, the London-based hate preacher who wants to establish an Islamic state in Britain, has now reached into the Muslim community in Scandinavia.
Last week it was disclosed that a Norwegian jihadist killed in Syria fighting alongside a terrorist group had with links with Choudary, who is infamous for urging young Muslim men to go abroad to fight with jihadi groups linked to Al Qaeda.
This could leave Choudary vulnerable to a request for extradition by the Norwegian public prosecutor.
Tonje Torsgard, a spokesperson for the Norwegian Ministry of Justice and Public Security, told Breitbart London that it was not possible to comment on individual cases.
However, she did confirm that several provisions of the penal code might be applicable to a person “who incites someone to fight with a terrorist organisation.”
The penal code “makes it an offence to form, take part in, recruit members to or give financial or material support to a terrorist organization.”
“In general, Norwegian penal law has jurisdiction over serious offences which have taken place abroad, in many cases both when they are committed by a Norwegian national or a foreigner.”
“If the person charged resides in a foreign state the Prosecution Authority will consider whether to request the extradition of that person.”
