Oslo District Court has sentenced the three men accused of plotting terror against Norwegian and Danish targets.



Uighur (China) 40-year-old Mikael Davud, alleged to be the mastermind behind planning an assault using explosives on Danish paper Jyllands-Posten and/or assassinate cartoonist Kurt Westergaard, was handed a sentence of seven years. He later confessed to wishing to blow up the Chinese Embassy in Oslo for personal reasons.

Iraqi-Kurd Shawan Sadek Saeed Bujak (38) and 33-year-old, Uzbek David Jakobsen received three years six months, and four months, respectively. 

Mr Jakobsen was freed on charges of terror planning, but was sentenced for helping Mr Davud obtain bomb ingredients

Whilst Mr Davud and Mr Bujak’s had their incarceration periods reduced by 606 days apiece for time already spent in custody, Mr Jakobsen was deemed to have already served his sentence.

This is the first time anyone has been convicted of planning terrorism in Norway, reports NRK.

It is believed the case is connected with plans to blow up US and UK targets in 2009. Mr Davud was suspected of having formed a terrorist association with al-Qaida, and has admitted having contact but through others.

All three denied their guilt at the opening of the trial, and defence counsels have demanded the men were freed.
