The Police Security Service (PST) claims approximately 19 countries have intelligence officers stationed in Norway.

Many officers act as liaisons between Norway and their home countries as part as efforts to prevent terrorism and the spread of weapons of mass destruction, amongst other things, and are here legally.

But there are some who have come under false pretences – claiming to be diplomats, businessmen, or journalists, for example. Often, their aim is to mislead, gather information, influence, recruit, undermine and, at worst, commit sabotage on behalf of foreign states at Norway’s cost.

In 2009, the threat of intelligence was regarded as consistently high, writes the PST.
