Court quashes outspoken Muslim remand

Islamist extremist Arfan Bhatti was ordered released by Oslo District Court following his arrest but imposed an injunction against visiting his own home.



Oslo police apprehended Bhatti at 00:30 on Tuesday morning in Østre Aker vei for having used violence against a woman in the family. He was indicted for assault, as well violence and threats against police officers in connection with his arrest.

Bhatti’s lawyer John Christian Elden had earlier confirmed to Dagbladet that his 34-year-old client was charged in connection with the offence. 

''He is accused of hitting an adult family member on the face hard enough that it required a stitch. He has been questioned and denied the accusation,'' said Mr Elden.

Police, who had asked for Bhatti to be detained for two weeks with a ban on letters and visits, appealed yesterday’s court decision on the spot, but it was turned down by the judge. John Christian Elden said court's decision did not come as a surprise. 

‘’It was expected considering what Bhatti was charged with’, he told NRK, claiming “anyone else would have been released after questioning.”

The hearing was held behind closed doors. 

Born and raised in Norway by Pakistani parents, Bhatti has been accused of offences on several previous occasions.

He has been convicted for his role contributing to damage to Oslo’s synagogue in 2008 after shots were fired against it in 2006, and accused but subsequently acquitted for planning terrorism against US and Israeli targets.

In January, he held an appeal under a demonstration in front of Parliament in which he stated that Norway "is at war with Islam and the Muslims."
