Mullah Krekar was Tuesday afternoon apprehended in his home by armed members of the Secret Police (PST) and the Oslo Police Precinct, NRK reports. The move comes just one day after Krekar was sentenced to five years in prison by an Oslo court for making death threats against five named persons. According to a report by the newspaper Aftenposten Tuesday morning, Krekar is said to have made new threats, this time against Norwegian police and Norwegian interests abroad, published on a internet site that he has also used earlier.
According to media reports, Krekar has been apprehended on the basis of the Osly City Court's sentence, and after having made new threats.
The police have declined to comment, but according to NRK, Krekar will on Wednesday appear before an Oslo court, where the police will request that he will be remanded in custody, NRK reports.
