– Norwegian Soldiers Violated International Law

These claims came from Steingrímur Njálsson, who is an expert on international criminal law and the author of the book "Crimes against Humanity". During an interview in Trondheim-based Adresseavisen, Njálsson told the Norwegian special troops have helped to arrest hundred people suspected of connected to Taliban and suggested that government can not hide behind the Norwegian special troops operated in conjunction with Afghan police forces.

-Norway has an obvious duty to ensure that arrested people are not subjected to torture, "said Steingrimur Njálsson.
