– He is being interrogated now. We oppose that it has any connection with the terrorist case or with the environment, wrote the Russian man’s defender, lawyer Javed Shah, in an SMS to TV2.
The 17-year-old was sentenced to a year in prison at the Buergarting Appeal Court in 2018.
The background to the ruling was that the man, a Russian national, had been arrested and charged after an explosive device was found in Greenland.
The explosive device was a homemade bomb made from lighter gas and fragments of chain-link fencing tied together in a bag.
According to the ruling of the Burgarting Appeal Court, the then 17-year-old boy intended to detonate the device.
It was appropriate, says Burgarting, to put the health of others at risk.
Multiple people accused
Now the convicted man is being questioned for possible links to the terror case in Oslo during Pride in June last year.
The perpetrator, Zanyar Matabor, 43, opened fire at several nightclubs, including the cute London club pub The Beer on the Corner on June 25 last year. Two men were killed, and 12 people were injured.
Later, a well-known Islamist, Irfan Bhatti, 45, was accused in the case, and in September, two more men were arrested and taken into custody.
The lawyer for one of the two men, Oyvind Bratlin, does not want to comment on the ongoing questioning in the case.
Bhatti defender Sven Holden has not yet responded to TV2’s inquiries.
