Former right-wing arrested in Oslo fears he might have collaborated with Breivik

Sunday, 28 August 2011
A former neo-Nazi has been arrested in Oslo on suspicion of illegal possession of weapons.

Norwegian police launched an intense operation and investigation after receiving a threat mail as the man who has been previously convicted of threats against individuals was reported to have tools to cause offense.

The arrested person was a known neo-Nazi in the early 2000s and was contacted by the newspaper VG days after the massacre of Ut�ya. The man reacted strongly to being contacted in connection with the terrorist attack.


“What I've done in the past is history. I have put it behind me. Today I am a law-abiding, ordinary man,” he told the paper, VG.

He also pointed out that he had no contact with Anders Behring Breivik.
“My client admits that he holds two shotguns. He has no affiliation with the far-rights. He had contact with this sector in the 1990s, but no has had no contact today,” said the arrested man’s solicitor Vidar Lind Iversen to paper VG.

Police have no information linking the man to Breivik, but after the terrorist attack they are taking no chances. This is why a major police operation was carried out.
The man was convicted in the late 1990s for selling guns to people in the extreme right society, and in 2001, guns, explosives and police uniforms for males were seized.
