The 28-year-old taxi driver charged with conspiracy to commit murder and deprivation of liberty in the Ashraf killing has altered his statement.

After first having denied any involvement with her kidnapping, police say he has now admitted knowing Håvard Nyfløt (25), who has confessed to murdering 26-year-old Faiza Ashraf, according to Dagbladet.

The taxi driver was arrested and charged with abducting the woman on 03 February, the same night as Ashraf’s disappearance, after she identified him herself during several conversations with police on her mobile from the boot of her abductor’s car.

On 26 February, Asker and Bærum District Court agreed to extend the period of his original custody by a further four weeks. He was also put in full isolation until 12 March, with a ban on all letters and visits for the remaining period of his internment.

His lawyer, Petter Sørensen, appealed their decision to the Court of Appeal, but they have chosen to uphold the district court’s original ruling.

“We find  the 28-year-old’s new explanation to police that he knows Nyfløt and something about what happened to the plaintiff on 03 February sheds a different light on the question of incarceration than when the district court considered the matter on 26 February,” the Court of Appeal quotes the judges as writing.
