Norway terror questions under spotlight. Defence Minister Grete Faremo and Minister of Justice Knut Storberget are to account for Anders Behring Breivik’s attacks to Parliament today. Whilst many questions about the police helicopter, response team, and the PST remain unanswered, amongst others, the Opposition claims Norwegians were abandoned in their time of need. Liberal Party (V) leader Trine Skei Grande says to NRK, “it’s obvious we failed as a nation in our most important task on 22 July, namely protecting the security of Norwegian citizens.”

Whilst many questions about the police helicopter, response team, and the PST remain unanswered, amongst others, the Opposition claims Norwegians were abandoned in their time of need.

Liberal Party (V) leader Trine Skei Grande says to NRK, “it’s obvious we failed as a nation in our most important task on 22 July, namely protecting the security of Norwegian citizens.”

Impatience for answers now is growing, despite the government-appointed independent 22 July Commission. Coordination between the police and army has also been criticised.

Moreover, minister Storberget’s previous statement claiming “it will be difficult to answer [questions about what happened then] before the evaluation of all agencies involved and the commission’s work are completed”, has left politicians unappeased, reports the broadcaster.

“We don’t accept this. The world does not stand still even though the commission is carrying out its work,” says Hans Olav Syversten MP for the Christian Democrats (KrF).

Today’s account is scheduled to start at 10:00 (Norwegian time) and lasts for approximately 2 hours. The Foreigner will be covering the first part via a live blog. Updated article due later.
