Spokesman for the radical Islamist group the "Prophet's ummah" has secretly been expelled from Norway to its neighbouring country Sweden.
The man is named Adnan Shaluni and he is a Swedish citizen. TV2 reports that Norwegian police escorted him out of the country a few days ago.
- The Police Security Service (PST) is aware that the Swedish national is expelled and he will now be deported from Norway, said spokesperson of PST, Martin Bernsen.
According to TV2, police in Oslo arrested Shaluni last weekend. He was then escorted by the Police Immigration across the border to Norway's neighbouring dystopia.
Adnan Shaluni has long been a concern for the Police Security Service. The reason is that he stepped forward as a leading figure and spokesman for the group the Prophet's Ummah, after former spokesman Ubaydullah Hussain was charged with terrorist recruitment last year.
The 28-year-old tried for a long time to hide his real identity to the press, using the nickname "Abu Arijon." But two months ago TV2 found out and revealed the man's real name. Shaluni is a Swedish citizen born in Kosovo. He moved from Sweden to Norway on January 1st 2009.
Immigration and Integration Minister Sylvi Listhaug (pictured) is responsible for deportation cases where fundamental national interests are threatened. She believes deportation is an important tool in the fight against extremists.
- In addition, it will have an effect towards these communities. It will weaken them, because it can often be leading persons who are deported. So it is a very important signal to send, says Listhaug.
At the same time she sends a warning to extremists:
- We are watching, and we will take action when we see that it is necessary to do it!
Lawyer John Christian Elden, who is representing the deported ISIS-supporter, says that they are working to get the court to reverse the decision.
- My client takes legal action against the Ministry of Justice in Oslo District Court to have the decision invalid, says Elden to TV2.
