Italian judicial authorities have notified Norwegian authorities that the request for the extradition of Mullah Krekar, whose real name is Najmuddin Faraj Ahmad, is withdrawn.
Members of the government and members of the parliament, who cheered when it became known last week that Krekar could be extradited to Italy, thus seem to have celebrated a bit early:

- The Attorney General has received a copy of a letter dated 25 November 2016 from the Italian Ministry of Justice to the Norwegian Ministry of Justice, where it is stated that Italy's request for extradition of Mullah Krekar will be withdrawn. This will be formalized in a decision by the Italian minister and the letter of withdrawal will soon be submitted to the ministry, writes the Attorney General's Office in a statement.
Thus Krekar is released from custody. He was put into custody last week after the Supreme Court rejected the appeal for extradition to Italy.

The press release from the Attorney General reveals that the extradition request of Mullah Krekar by Italy was repealed in an Italian ruling on 3 March this year.
"It is not stated why the ruling was revoked or why the withdrawal of the extradition request has not been notified earlier," said the press release.
The Attorney General states that they have not received any signals about this from the Italian authorities prior to 25 November this year.
