Terror body suggests 14 improvements / News / The Foreigner

Terror body suggests 14 improvements. The parliamentary committee evaluating the 22 July made its recommendations how to guard Norway better against terrorism and increase security, Thursday. Its mandate did not include scrutinising the events, but politicians found it necessary to point out several weak areas. Amongst others, these comprised improved helicopter emergency coverage at Rygge Airport, evaluation of police response time and ‘shooting in progress’ guidelines, and closer cooperation between police and the army. A reinforced anti-terror plan, better national warning and emergency telephone systems, as well as a review of Police Security Service competence and resources, including combating lone-wolf terrorism, also formed part of the 14 points.

Its mandate did not include scrutinising the events, but politicians found it necessary to point out several weak areas.
Amongst others, these comprised improved helicopter emergency coverage at Rygge Airport, evaluation of police response time and ‘shooting in progress’ guidelines, and closer cooperation between police and the army.

A reinforced anti-terror plan, better national warning and emergency telephone systems, as well as a review of Police Security Service competence and resources, including combating lone-wolf terrorism, also formed part of the 14 points.

Committee leader Knut Arild Hareide said to Aftenposten, “I wouldn’t say we ‘failed’ on 22nd July. A lot of good work took place, but it wasn’t good enough. We want improvements and the 22nd July showed us areas where we need to be better, something will take on board.”

The body’s decision will be debated in parliament on 08th March, but will be up to the government to implement. Mr Hareide concluded, “I would say there are 14 different proposals, with 14 different time schedules.” 

Anders Behring Breivik killed 77 people in his twin attacks on government headquarters and Utøya.
