The Foreigner Foreign forces aid Norwegian police Breivik investigation. Overseas police forces are helping their Norwegian colleagues piece together the links between Breivik’s various influences. “It is natural that we get assistance from foreign law enforcement when it comes to investigating those from abroad”, said police attorney Paal-Fredrik Hjort Kraby to Aftenposten. British police have already offered their help in light of alleged links between Breivik and several prominent Far-Right bloggers in Britain. It is likely that as Norwegian policemen identify foreign nationals with whom Breivik may have had contact, the police forces of those countries are brought in to help.

Foreign forces aid Norwegian police Breivik investigation

Overseas police forces are helping their Norwegian colleagues piece together the links between Breivik’s various influences.



“It is natural that we get assistance from foreign law enforcement when it comes to investigating those from abroad”, said police attorney Paal-Fredrik Hjort Kraby to Aftenposten.

British police have already offered their help in light of alleged links between Breivik and several prominent Far-Right bloggers in Britain. It is likely that as Norwegian policemen identify foreign nationals with whom Breivik may have had contact, the police forces of those countries are brought in to help.

“Police’s main focus is whether [Breivik] had accomplices, even though we have not found anything to suggests it so far”, said Kraby.

Over a hundred investigators are working on finding links between Breivik and anti-Muslim websites. Their most prominent target, the blogger Fjordman, has already been interviewed and distanced himself from Breivik.

Meanwhile, the police team are discovering more and more links between Breivik and various anti-Muslim groups from around the world. As well as the site Document.no and the Gates of Vienna blog, they are also establishing what contact Breivik had with organised anti-Muslim groups such as the English Defence League.

 “Almost all the equipment he used, he has acquired abroad”, said Breivik’s lawyer Geir Lippestad at a press conference last week. Police are worried that more one-man terror cells like Breivik may be operating around Norway.

Meanwhile, it is still not confirmed if Breivik had any accomplices. Although his manifesto does not show any traces of his being helped by anyone, police are still anxious to discover whether any other terror cells are operating in Norway. Earlier reports suggested that Breivik might have had two accomplices.

Mr Lippestad said both the Oslo bombing and Utøya shootings were “so comprehensive, that one would think that someone must have helped.”
