In the hope of finding solo terrorists and training processes, the move comes after it was discovered a Norwegian man who had converted to Islam and received terrorist training in Yemen from al-Qaida might be ready to carry out an attack on a target in the west.

Minister of Justice Grete Faremo has sent out the consultation paper and has given a deadline for the beginning of November. She says there is need for discussion about the measures to ensure they do not go against individual freedom and privacy.

“I strive for an as normal a legislative process as possible and will summarise all the views before we draw the final conclusion,” Aftenposten was told.

Now former Police Security Service (PST) head Janne Kristiansen called for changes to Norway’s anti-terror legislation, which was attacked for being outdated in the wake of the 2010 arrest of three men accused and subsequently convicted of plotting terrorism on Danish and Norwegian targets.

At the end of 2010, the government launched a 30-point ‘pre-terror' plan in an effort to prevent both violent extremism and radicalisation.

Petter Neumann, an expert in radicalisation, has said he believes stopping extremists operating on the Internet with technological solutions is impossible.
