The Islam-critical vigilante group, Soldiers of Odin, which was born in Finland last year, has begun to establish itself in several Norwegian cities.
NRK has in recent weeks reported branching of the group in Vestfold, in southern cities, and in Tromsø.
But while police in the south say they're going to expel Soldiers of Odin, if they start patrolling the streets in the southern cities, the police chief in the Finnmark Police, (far north), Morten Daae, says that «much of what Soldiers of Odin intend to do is unproblematic seen from the police's point of view».
- This clearly has some problematic aspects, and it is the line between what we traditionally call a vigilante group. However, this also has a positive side, in the sense that there are people who in a way want to help ensure that we have safe towns and cities all across the country, says Daae, and adds:
- There are several things that need to be seen against each other, but basically these are things that may be fine with the police. But I have to consider this more before I can be absolutely sure of everything.
- If you get an establishment of Soldiers of Odin in Finnmark, in Alta, how will the police follow up?
- We will see how this develops. If they are peaceful it is unproblematic. It is the line between a vigilante group I see as problematic, says Daae.
The Soldiers of Odin "uniform" is a black hoodie with a logo on the back.
