After the situation was announced last week, there was a series of measures to secure Norway against the unspecified but specific threat against our country, wrote PST.
– These measures were essential to implement. We would have behaved irresponsibly if we had not taken the information we received with the utmost seriousness. I think it was right to warn the population, says Justice Minister Anders Anundsen.
He also said one of the purposes of informing the public about the threat was to prevent and deter those who planned a terrorist act.
– This specific threat has shown that we have a functioning system. Preparedness can escalate sharply in a short time when the situation warrants it. I would like to give great credit to all the servicemen and women who have set up on short notice to maintain the necessary preparedness, says Anundsen.
